Parking in the City of Perth is about to get even easier, with the rollout of a new parking payment phone app this July.
Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said embracing technology like this app will vastly improve the experience of parking in the City.
“Just about everything can be done using a smartphone these days, and now paying for parking in the City of Perth is about to be added to the list,” Mr Zempilas said.
The EasyPark app’s rollout in the City will be staged. From Saturday, 1 July people will be able to use the app while parking at one of the City’s 17 non-boom gated CPP car parks (2,794 bays).
“If you’re busy shopping and your parking is about to expire, you’ll be able to quickly and easily add time through the app and avoid a parking fine,” Mr Zempilas said.
“However, users will still need to check the parking signage to make sure they’re following the rules.”
By September the app can be used for on-street parking across the City (6,314 bays).
“App users will also not need to walk to find a parking meter, they’ll be able to just use their phone from their parked car. Particularly handy on a rainy day!”
The app charges an additional service fee for users, with rates varying depending on whether you’re a casual user or on a business account. This service fee goes to EasyPark, not the City of Perth.
“While we’re thrilled to welcome this app as a convenient option for drivers, it’s not a requirement. Drivers who want to continue paying for their parking with cash or card can still do that. “
