Payment options bridge gap at Dartford


The Dart Charge scheme at England’s Dartford Crossing toll has added two new ways for users to pay, extending the offering introduced after cash payments at toll barriers were removed in November 2014.

In addition to the services already offered, users can now:

  • Pay as You Go: drivers can register their vehicle and payment details and automatically pay the charge each time they use the crossing
  • Pingit: drivers can pay for single crossings using the Pingit app on their smartphone, available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone

Dart Charge project director Nigel Gray commented: “Dart Charge already gives drivers flexibility about how and when they pay the Dartford Crossing charge. These new payment methods are part of our commitment to offer people even more choice and an even better Dart Charge service. The pay as you go option is ideal for people who don’t want to have a prepay account but still want to be able to pay the charge automatically each time they use the crossing. And Pingit is a convenient extra way to pay for single crossings.”
