Roll out of new parking meters begins

Published on Friday, 22 March 2024 at 8:53:15 AM

The Town has begun the transition to new cashless parking meters, replacing the old coin machines which will soon become redundant with the shutdown of 3G. 

Motorists may have noticed the new, solar-powered slimline machines appearing throughout Vic Park and Burswood in recent days, with the rollout scheduled to continue over the coming weeks. 

The new meters accept payments by credit/debit card or the EasyPark (pay-by-phone) application only – coins will no longer be accepted. 

Utilising the latest pay-by-plate technologies, the new meters eliminate the need to display a parking ticket on the dash of your car, eliminating paper waste and saving motorists from an extra trip back to their vehicle.

Other benefits include:

  • Ease of use – In addition to the easy-to-use meters, motorists can use the phone app EasyPark, which gives you more control over your stay, ensuring you don’t pay for time you don’t use. 
  • Less clutter – We’ll be removing redundant machines and signage from the streetscape, improving pedestrian access and freeing up space for more community-friendly amenities. 
  • Increased community investment – A 40% reduction in overall parking meters across the Town reduces ongoing service, maintenance and consumable costs.
  • Higher reliability – Reduces parking meter faults and driver frustration due to coin jams, printer faults and vandalism.
  • More sustainable – No more wasteful paper tickets, minimising emissions; and the machines will be solar-powered! 

Parking Officers will be present in areas where new machines are being installed in order to help motorists where needed.
