Where to get reasonably priced parking in Civic?

By sunshine - 19 October 2008 55

I’m just about to change jobs which means giving up my free parking spot in civic and finding another parking spot in Civic.

Can anyone suggest a long stay parking area in civic that doesn’t cost a fortune???

What’s Your opinion?

I don’t take any interest in jobs in Civic, teh parking thing is just too silly nowadays. I used to live 7 kms from Civic, but there was no bus there! Still isn’t. And there certainly is no bus where I live now, although the Deane’s buses take the kids into town for school.

I do wish they’d get serious about building office buildings away from congested town centres. I choose where to work based on location (or discount jobs based on location). I’m sure enough people would make the same choices. Imagine if all those people queued up on Majura rd every day had the option of working in Gungalin?

sounds like you best just retire now and spend the days with your zimmer frame and the odd bit of a job in the garden… beat the rush.

Sunshine – car pool a few days a week; cuts down on petrol, share the parking fees. 🙂

Yea i would reccomend the CIT dirt car park which is only $5 a day. The only setback is that is is full of potholes.
And i would not reccomend parking there when it is raining -all of the many potholes fill with water and the whole carpark turns into a lake

Why not, the bus might turn up, might not be full in the morning and might not take you for a trip around canberra before going to its destination an hour later.

Otherwise ensure that you are getting appropriate compensation from your new job to cover the extra cost of parking.

Depends where though – if you live near a town center it’s usually more reliable. But if you’re in the suburbs, you’re screwed. I’d say ride a bike if you live anywhere near the city. The inner-north seems to have an excellent network of bike-paths.

Buy a monthly bus pass. Park at Treasury or behind Questacon for free then walk under Adelaide Ave to Albert Hall. Jump on any intertown service – you’re in Civic in just a couple of minutes. Don’t think of it as a bus pass – think of it as paid parking with a shuttle service.

I park at the treasury building on the other side of the lake, and do the 30 minute walk over the bridge into the city.

That way you don’t pay a thing, and you get some excercise in the process.

Probably next to the place where you get coffee

Please refer to previous threads “where can I buy a cup of coffee” or “how do I find a plumber” etc!

motorcycle/bicycle noooooooooooooo and i’ve thought about the bus however i’m one of those people that it doesn’t suit at all

Motorcycle? Bicycle?

Can I suggest that you look at using public transport to commute to your new job.

I appreciate that it doesnt suit everyone, but I think that rather than default mode of transport to work being a car, other options starting with using public transport should be considered.

All day parking in Civic isnt going to get any cheaper.

Is the roof top at Canberra center still all day for $9?? Or did they change that??

Hey bigfeet,

There are a couple of cheaper options depending on where you are in Civic and if you don’t mind a short walk.

The parking @ the local CIT is only $5 per day (but it is a dirt car park and your car seems to get a bit dirty by the end of the week)

You can also park for FREE a little bit up from that car park at the Anzac parade west building which is about a 13 – 15 min walk in to the city.

There is also the car park near the city pool which I think the cost is $7 per day?

I hope this helps

Cheers

David

$150 per month at Clifton apartments on Northbourne.
