Oxford station on track: a case study in differential pricing

This article describes the employment of differential pricing for car parking at Oxford railway station, southern England. City centre station car parks are used by non-travellers as well as rail passengers, causing congestion. The system described, Cobalt Telephone Technologies' RingGo, provides an automatic reduction in price when a passenger code is entered. Users make a mobile phone call from inside the ticket gate on the station, using the code displayed there. Similar technology could be used in other circumstances to benefit specified user groups.
