Transperth gives commuters a parking holiday
Commuters are not being charged for parking in Transperth car parks today.
The Transperth ticket machines were not re-programmed to take account of the fact that the Queen’s Birthday public holiday has been shifted from today to October 28, so they would not issue parking vouchers – because parking is free of charge on public holidays.
This applied to both cash and SmartRider-paid parking.
No PTA parking infringements will be issued today for failing to display a ticket.
About 5250 bays across the system are affected, representing $10,500 in parking revenue.
The machines will be programmed to recognise the revised holiday date, October 28.
