Parking availability Civic West side?

By Flo 26 October 2010 30

Does anyone know of any free or reasonably priced all day parking around civic on the west side?

My company has moved to Gould Street Civic.

What’s Your opinion?

I don’t get that – pay for petrol money and a bus fare? Why not catch a bus from home? I’m glad my legs aren’t just painted on.

Park at the Hyatt for free and buy a 10 ride bus ticket and get the bus into the city from the Albert Hall stop. Ends up being about $5 a day which is cheaper than anything in the city, and it is right along the intertown route so you never have to wait long to get a bus.

And on the suitable days, it’s a very nice walk across the bridge and into the city.

I thought this was a pretty well-known trick, I mentioned it in the Barton parking thread last week. I doubt that it’s coincidental that the Treasury car park started filling earlier when parking charges went up in the city.

By my calculation it costs $2500 for parking. That means that I’m $1000 better off driving my two tonne 4WD to work than the person who takes the $1500 carparking allowance.

cool

Ok, so I did just RTFM….I still don’t agree with you.

There’s free parking over near the statue of the Unicorn. But is it a statue?

Morons….some (able-bodied) people can’t ride to work (push-bike, motorbike, or scooter) because they have to drop children off at school or day-care on their way to work. Do you suggest they all just hop on each others shoulders for the trip? Or how about strapping them to the old pack-rack? Also, if ever parents are called to come and pick up their child early as they are sick, being able to hop in the car and drive straight there is preferable to treddling home first to get the car then go pick them up. It’s just not practical.

Single. Single, single, single. RTFM.

Anyway I’m a parent and I either drop the kids off to the nearby daycare, nip home and then ride, or use a trailer. And if cars are so indispensable for parents, I’d imagine they would be the last ones to criticise a push to free up parking and roads for those who have genuine need. But no, they seem to whinge most of all.

Double moron!!! I’m neither single nor a parent…I just happen to be a bit more empathetic towards other people’s plights. How lucky for you that your daycare is ‘nearby’ and you can just ‘nip’ home to grab the bike. You must just love your living guts!
