It's only a matter of time that parking rates in CBD area will be increase. The parking lots available inside the restricted area are decreasing as more buildings are being re-developed with fewer parking lots being re-built. Hence there's going to be a shortage of lots. Given that there's more demands than supply, it's only logical that parking charges will only go up sooner or later. At some place, the rate is 4.80/hr during office hours! only URA car park remains at 1.00/half hr.

The aim is ultimately to reduce the traffic in CBD thru ERP, high parking rates, limited parking lots , so as to encourage more ppl to take public trans to work.

Very common for $2/- per entry.

You try STAR Hub Centre, you will be furious.gif furious.gif furious.gif . In today contact, very hard to find $2/- per entry car park along Orchard Road. Only few building offer that kind of rate.

Well we got no choice if we wanna park there...
It's still affordable compared to suntec and marina square though.

$2 per entry is still below market rate. Some places, after 5/6pm still charging you on hourly basis.

I had been parking there for many years. it used to be free parking on sat and sunday. tat time the place was very quiet. normal rates was $1. and it become more crowded. on certain day it was even full.
it was increase to $2 since 3rd Jan 07 but i guess it is still ok.

Nowadays so many cars on the road, which in turn more cars fighting for CP space, increase in price will prevent ppl from suka suka park. Left the space for those urgently needed
