Gouldburn Street Car Park and the Kings Cross Car Park are two car parks in Sydney. You have to pay from eight dollars per up to one hour to a maximum of fifty six Australian dollars for six hours or more at Gouldburn Street Car Park. On Friday and Saturday the rate is five dollars per hour up to a maximum of fifteen dollars, and you will need to pay a flat ten Australian dollar rate on weekdays and on Sundays after six in the evening. However, car park rentals is one of many different parking options available for you.
Motorcycles and bikes are charged separately with the former costing five Australian dollars or one dollar per hour. Bicycles can be parked for free. Gouldburn car park has facilities for disabled though height restriction is 1.98 meters.
When parking elsewhere in Sydney, you will have to pay according to the meter of which there are 3 types spread throughout the LGA (Local Government Area). Each meter in the city of Sydney accepts coin based payment though you can also pay by credit card or mobile phone. Once you pay the cost, a ticket is printed out that can then be displayed on the car dashboard. These meters are solar powered and have anti vandalism features.
For resident parking, Sydney offers permits that exempt a resident or business as well as visitor vehicles from normal curbside restrictions as well as fees to park. This helps in protecting the neighborhood from commuter parking. The permits are valid only for the specific area where a person lives though not every street offers exemptions to its residents.
These permits are meant for use by only those people that do not have proper space to park on their property and who have more than one car but just one space in which to park their vehicle.
This scheme is being tried out in inner Sydney and it offers ninety car spaces which will be reserved for use by residents that are making use of car sharing schemes. Under this scheme, you can pay your membership fee to privately run companies and then make use of car sharing networks. Such a scheme has already been tried out in countries such as Switzerland and Italy and with much success. It will hopefully provide Sydney with similar benefits.
For those people that need to park their vehicles at Sydney airport there are several parking options available. However, before doing anything you need to understand things such as minimum stay periods, height restrictions, and online booking and payment methods.
You can book your space to park your vehicle at Sydney airport up to twelve months in advance which will assure you of getting space and it also protect you from any subsequent changes in rates. You can also cancel or even change your booking at no extra cost provided you do this more than a day prior to the date of your planned arrival at the car park.
