Telstra issues affecting card payments at Byron Bay meters
Published on 10 January 2020
Ongoing technical problems with Telstra Wi-Fi are causing intermittent problems with card payments at parking meters in Byron Bay.
Some people are finding that their credit cards are declined when they go to pay.
“We are working to resolve these issues with Telstra and hope these intermittent glitches with the card payment system are fixed as soon as possible,” Phil Holloway, Byron Shire Council’s Acting General Manager, said.
“ I acknowledge it is frustrating for people trying to pay with their cards and I ask they try another machine or, if that doesn’t work, to pay with coins,” Mr Holloway said.
Parking meters accept card and coin payments and people are reminded that if cards are not being accepted they are legally required to pay with coins.
The glitches with the pay parking meters will have no impact on Byron Shire residents who have a pay parking permit.
