When using Carlisle City Council car parks, customers are advised to follow social distancing guidance and if possible, pay by card or contactless rather than use cash and park in alternate bays. The majority of council car parks provide contactless payment options including credit/debit card, mobile phone using MiPermit, Apple Pay and Android Pay.
The MiPermit scheme has no hidden costs and is an easy and flexible way to make a cashless payment.
There are a number of ways to use the MiPermit scheme. Customers can call or text, but the easiest way is to use the APP, simply download MIPERMIT onto your smartphone and on arrival at the car park, use your app select your stay and pay. Customers can even extend their stay if out shopping so no need to rush back.
