  Transport improvements

Perth Parking Levy revenue is used to improve the transport system for those who travel to, from and within central Perth and to fund alternative transport services and other initiatives to reduce the need for cars in the CBD and therefore congestion.

The investments made with the revenue directly benefit community members and businesses by:

  • Managing traffic congestion on inner city streets as the city rapidly grows to improve amenity for residents, businesses and visitors to central Perth;
  • Offering free travel on all public transport services within the PPMA; and
  • Improving inner city cycling facilities to meet the growing need for convenient, safe cycling routes, and helping to make cycling a safe and attractive alternative transport mode.
