Anyone else notice the yellow stickers ? Parking fees to rise July 25th

By Genie - 15 July 2011 22

sticker

I normally bus it to work but have driven into the City everyday this week – Whilst paying for my parking this morning I noticed a yellow sticker informing me that parking will rise from $7 a day to $8 a day in the CIT carpark.

All day parking out the front of the Convention Centre will rise from $10.50 to $12 a day.

Anyone else notice their parking will be costing more after July 25 ???

Did I dream it or did I read somewhere that there was talk of allowing MyWay cards for parking meters?

This is correct. That is one reason why the word ‘ACTION’ doesnt appear on the tickets.

Time to bring in parl triangle pay parking, even at $6 a day.
And Fyshwick at $6 a day.
And Mitchell and Hume at $6.

It will create a little equity for those who use the facilities and not just punish city workers.

Create equity? If you get robbed, is it only fair for others to get robbed too? Eye for an eye is a moronic mentality.

As a former Parl triangle employee, I always thought there was some sort of madness in no pay parking there where there was pay parking everywhere else. (I also wonder why tradies never get booked for parking absolutely anywhere and everywhere around building sites, but that’s another argument for another day.)

Yes, there are no facilities within the PT, but bringing in pay parking there would reduce the number of vehicles within the area, encourage car pooling and the use of public transport and then give the workers who park within the triangle the opportunity to actually go out at lunch and be confident of getting a carpark.

FWIW, I cycle to the city the two days each week I don’t have kiddie drop offs/collections. I do my best to avoid paying the ACT or a private car park owner any more money than I need to….
