The Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate has restarted its Park & Ride scheme following a temporary pause earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Directorate said that through the scheme people could use an allocated parking space to park their car before catching a bus or light rail to complete their journey.
“You’ll be helping to reduce congestion on ACT roads and the demand for parking in the city and other major business areas,” the Directorate said.
“Park & Ride facilities are located on Rapid routes and at selected group centres to allow easy connections with peak transport services,” it said.
The Directorate said to use Park & Ride people would need to review the scheme’s map to find their nearest location; apply for a Park & Ride permit; ensure their MyWay card met the scheme’s conditions; and review timetables of the rapid bus or rail route that serviced their chosen location.
“If eligible, a Park & Ride permit will be issued for three calendar months, beginning the month after your application is received,” it said.
“Permits are valid for use at any Park & Ride location.”
The Directorate said having a permit didn’t guarantee a parking space as they were filled on a first come, first served basis.
