The community is reminded that the introductory offer of free parking at ParknGo Mooloolaba Central finishes at midnight tonight (17 Jan).
A paid, ticketless parking system will be in place from tomorrow (Monday 18 January).
Cameras at the car park entrance will use automated number plate recognition technology to determine when a vehicle enters a car park. Upon leaving, users will pay an exit fee to activate the gate.
