What’s coming for parking reform?

Streets Alive Yarra attended a Parking Australia event in Melbourne, which discussed “What’s coming down the road – evolution (or revolution) in parking and mobility technology“. It was great to hear the breadth of views regarding issues facing the parking industry, and also to have the opportunity to invite industry members to collaborate with residents (not just councils) on parking reform.

Streets Alive Yarra pointed out the massive revenue opportunity available from across inner-city Melbourne, simply by charging commuters $10 for all-day parking, equivalent to the cost of a daily public transport fare, and how charging for all-day parking would improve the ability of customers to park near shops.
