  How is parking managed in central Perth?

The Perth Parking Policy was developed to create a sustainable transport system in central Perth by managing parking within the Perth Parking Management Area Perth, East Perth, West Perth and Northbridge.

Under the Perth Parking Management Act (1999), all non-residential parking bays within the Perth Parking Management Area are licensed and an annual levy must be paid on these bays where applicable.

Money raised by the Perth Parking Levy is spent within the Perth Parking Management Area to deliver services such as the free Central Area Transit (CAT) bus service and the Free Transit Zone for public transport, It also funds transport projects and new or improved services that reduce the need for cars within the area.

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.
