Parking is changing… and Trust wants to help you lead that change. Having recently acquired Newpark Solutions and the Glide App, we are updating all existing car parks to our advanced ANPR ticketless system.

The Trust ANPR parking management features enhance how drivers interact with locations by reducing pinch points, increasing flow & providing you with the data that matters. Our ANPR technology is unrivalled and award-winning and our support services for your car park management requirements are second to none.

Every camera, pay station and parking barrier, as well as every line of code that directs them was developed in-house, and we hold a number of patents pending for the automatic use of cameras to initiate payments. As such, we’re already supplying some of the largest parking management companies in the country.

No more ticket jams, no more queues, no more customer service requirements on location.

Making parking management effortless.
