(Five further car parks and two additional toll roads to offer electronic payment service)
Friday, 11 June 2010: Easytrip, Ireland’s largest provider of electronic tolling services today announced that motorists can now use their services in five additional car parks and on the newly opened M7/M8 Portlaoise and M3 Clonee to Kells motorways. The Easytrip electronic tag can now be used to pay on a total of ten toll roads or bridges and 16 car parks across Ireland.
The Ilac Centre, one of Ireland’s busiest car parks now facilitates the Easytrip’s service, along with Usher’s Quay, Dawson Street School House Lane, Dublin, St. Finbarr in Cork and Henry Street in Limerick. “The extension of our service across major car parks across Ireland and new toll roads allows us to present further convenience and hassle free commuting to our customers,” said Ciara O’Brien, general manager, Easytrip Services Ireland. “Over the past few months, we have seen the method of paying tolls electronically becoming more and more prevalent as further roads and car parks come on board. Irish motorists are really starting to enjoy the benefits of ticket, cash and hassle free commuting,” she concluded.
The Easytrip service is based on a small electronic tag for both parking and tolling, which customers install onto their windscreen. When motorists enter car parks the barriers lift automatically, and the tariff is deducted from their account on exit from the car park. Easytrip customers who avail of the parking service enjoy the benefits of convenient parking without the need for cash, no need to queue at the pay station, no need to take a ticket. Customers can also use their tag on any of the toll roads in Ireland. Easytrip customers save €1.00 on every M50 journey and 10% on parking charges in participating Q-Park Car Parks nationwide.
