Park and Ride goes citywide

Share Canberra's trusted news:

CANBERRA’S Park and Ride permit system will include a “citywide” permit from Monday, July 2.

Announcing the change and the development of designated permit parking areas, Chief Minister Katy Gallagher said:  “Two new permit areas have been established at Mawson and Mitchell to ensure that users of the Park and Ride service have more opportunities to get a car park and continue their journey via bus. Fifteen dedicated Park and Ride spaces have been allocated at the Mitchell site and 64 spaces at Mawson to assist with access.

“The new improvements will also see the introduction of a single ‘city-wide’ permit that can be used across Canberra’s five permit Park and Ride facilities, providing users with greater flexibility in their transport options.”

Park and Ride permits are available to MyWay users who have $90 ($40 for concession holders) or more in their MyWay account (at the time of application) at no extra charge. MyWay users who utilise the auto-load payment method also qualify for a permit at no extra charge.

Permit Park and Ride facilities are available at Mitchell, Belconnen Bus Station, Woden Bus Station, Mawson and Tuggeranong Bus Station. Permit free Park and Ride centres arelocated at Charnwood Shopping Centre, Kippax Centre, Jamison Centre, Curtin shops, Kambah Centre, Kambah Village shops, Chisholm shopsand Calwell shops.

“Our aim is to give Canberrans using public transport as many choices as possible. The ACT Government’s Transport for Canberra plan outlines a goal of 23 per cent of Canberrans using public transport, walking or cycling to work by 2016,” Gallagher said.
