Auckland Transport Hikes Daily Parking Caps

From Radio New Zealand:

Big hike in Auckland all day parking costs

Updated 26 minutes ago. Todd Niall, Auckland Correspondent – todd.niall@radionz.co.nz

The cost of all day parking at Auckland’s council-owned parking buildings is to rise by 40 percent, and some evening rates by 50 percent.

From next month it will cost $24 to park all day at the council’s three central city buildings at Downtown, the Civic and Victoria Street.

The city’s transport agency said the removal of an early-bird discount, last December, had failed to cut the number of commuters choosing to drive into the city and park all day.

It will also boost the evening flat rate in the Civic Car Park from $8 to $12, and by a smaller amount at the other two buildings.

Auckland Transport wants to free up more spaces for short term parking, and hourly short term charges remain unchanged.

    1. AT operates independent and is free to set its own fees for City Centre Parking.

      This in itself presents a problem in more ways than one.

      But for me I am inclined to let AT do as they see fit with parking in the City Centre
