More than 16,000 residents in Bristol have applied for new paperless parking permits since the launch of the digital system, MiPermit, last week.
Bristol City Council announced its new contract for paperless permits and tickets earlier this month.
The deal means the council can give out more than 2 million digital permits and allows residents in the city to buy, manage and renew permits and tickets electronically.
The digital system will allow the council’s enforcement team to digitally check if cars have a valid permit without the need to see one on display.
The council can still issue paper permits for people who do not have access to the internet, or who need additional support online.
