Parking in Caloundra is set to get easier

Published:

Parking meters in downtown Caloundra are being upgraded to allow tap-and-go payment.

All 64 parking meters in downtown Caloundra will accept payment via coins, credit and debit cards and pay-by-phone as part of the improvements which will be completed by mid-May

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said the upgrade would begin on April 15 and be carried out progressively across the fleet of meters to minimise disruption to services.

“These ‘smart’ meters offer additional capabilities, such as the tap-and-go functionality, and payment through the EasyPark app,” Cr Dwyer said.

"The two-hour (2P) time limit, will still apply, as will the $1.50 hourly rates, Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm and Saturday 9am-noon,” he said.

"Parking meters are essential for managing vehicle parking and encouraging turnover, which is good for shoppers and good for businesses as it increases patronage."

Funds raised by parking meters throughout the year are used for a range of projects in downtown Caloundra, including street activation, public facilities and business support programs.

Free on-street parking is also available at various locations throughout downtown Caloundra. For more details about parking on the Sunshine Coast visit www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
