Glide Parking App

October 11, 2018

Glide is a brand new payment App, allowing you to pay simply and easily for parking via your smartphone.

A new Automatic Number Plate Recognition Car Parking System is in operation in Llantwit Road car park and Glyntaff Upper and Lower car parks. You no longer need to take a ticket or swipe your access cards to enter or exit these car parks.

Parking permits can be bought in advance through the Glide app at a cost of: 1 month £15, 3 months £45, 6 months £90, 9 months £135 and 12 months £180. Annual permits are still available for purchase via the Online Store – just take your receipt to Security on your campus.

Sign up to Glide

  • To create a Glide account simply download the Glide Parking app from Google Play or the App Store
  • Either enter your registration number and select Pay Now or create an account – follow the prompts from Glide
  • Once payment has been made, there is a ten minute ‘grace period’ to leave the car park

For those that do not wish to purchase an annual or seasonal permit, users of the student and visitor car parks can pay £1 for up to 5 hours’ parking and £2 for any period over 5 hours. Payment can be made at one of the pay stations in the car park via credit, debit or contactless card, by cash or via the new Glide App.
