Killarney is situated in the beautiful heartland of County Kerry and caters for huge numbers of visitors during most of the year – most travelling by car. Killarney, like most Towns, found their meters had reached the end of life and needed replacing.

The Council awarded the contract for replacements to UTS based on a competitive tender with the Flowbird STRADA meter which met the Council’s requirements in terms of security and integrated coin and contactless payment. This was the first installation of coin and “pure contactless” technology i.e. the meters had no card slots or PIN-pads, just a simple, fast card touch-pad for contactless payments.

Due to the massive demand in the off-street car parks it was decided to run the new meters on existing power supplies that had been in place for the older meters.

There are 30 meters in operation and UTS provide all support services – maintenance, repairs, card processing and even ticket supply and loading leaving the Council Wardens more time to manage and enforce parking regulations.

The Council are delighted with the new Meters proving to be reliable and an encouraging uptake and steady increase in card payments.
