RAIL users will have to pay more to park their cars at Tullamore Train Station as car park charges increase next week.

Iarnród Éireann advised its customers that there will be changes to car park charges at its train stations including Tullamore from Monday, December 12 next. Machine charges for daily and weekly parking will increase.

The daily parking charge will rise from €2 to €3 while the weekly charge will go from €8 to €10.

It appears the increase is in a bid by the company to get people to switch to ParkBYText where there will be no increase. Monthly charges will effectively be reduced for all customers, with the validity of the €30 monthly rate for machine or ParkByText customers extended from 28 days to 31 days for no extra change.
