The City of Melbourne Is Doing Another Round of $5 Weekend and Afternoon CBD Parking Deals
For the two months up until Christmas, the cheap parking deal will apply at a heap of Wilson, Secure, Ace, Care Park, Nationwide and First Parking sites.
Now that Victoria's sixth lockdown is behind us, Melburnians no longer need to spend all their time at home. And, if you're now keen to venture into the CBD outside of work hours, the City of Melbourne has brought back an affordable solution.
Not everyone wants to spend too much time on public transport at present; however, getting a park in the city isn't usually a cheap option. That's changing between Wednesday, October 27–Saturday, December 25, with a number of Wilson, Secure, Ace, Care Park, Nationwide and First Parking sites doing $5 parking deals.
If you took advantage of the special last time it popped up back in July, you might've noticed a difference: there's a few more car park companies involved this time around. That cheap fee will still apply at the same times, though — so it's on offer after 4pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.
Just like last time, the deal aims to encourage Melburnians to spend more time in the CBD. The catch: you do still need to pre-book before you drive in, either by hitting up either company's website or their app. And, you'll need to enter the code 'CITYPARK21' while booking.
Across the two months, the discounted rate can be redeemed at more than 20 car parks — and just like in the middle of the year, you can expect it to prove popular.
"When we launched the $5 deal in July, it generated more than 41,000 bookings in just a few weeks," said Lord Mayor Sally Capp.
"This is one of the many initiatives we are rolling out to support city businesses, encourage visitation, and help Melbourne bounce back faster and stronger. On the first weekend after lockdown lifted, some key city locations experienced up to a tenfold increase in activity in the evenings. That confirms what we suspected — that people are bursting to get back to City of Melbourne," the Lord Mayor continued.
