Paying for parking when visiting Bronte, Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach is now easier as the popular Park’nPay app goes live in the Waverley council area.
Waverley Council becomes the latest location to be part of the Park’nPay app service coverage. This update was announced in early December 2022 by Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello who said that it will help those who live, work and visit these areas find a parking spot hassle-free.
According to Mr Dominello, Park’nPay reduces the headache of parking by allowing drivers to view parking spots, pay and top-up for parking remotely, and receive a notification 10 minutes before their parking expires, all on their smartphones.
He added that about 2,600 metered parking spots are available through the app, and they only need to pay for the time they use, instead of paying upfront.
“Being able to see real-time availability for more than 800 parking spaces, plus 68 accessible bays for disabled parking is great news for one of the city’s most visited areas, especially over summer.
“Whether heading for a swim, enjoying the shops or taking a coastal walk, the ability to top-up parking from anywhere means people no longer have to rush back to the meter every couple of hours which takes a lot of stress out of their day.
Member for Vaucluse Gabrielle Upton welcomed the activation of the new Park’nPay app service in the Waverley Council area, calling it a “big win for the local community and the thousands of visitors to the area looking to explore the shops, parks, beaches and businesses that Bronte, Bondi and the eastern suburbs has to offer”.
Mayor of Waverley Paula Masselos said that being one of the most densely populated LGAs in Australia, Park’nPay will help people plan their trips and access available parking spaces in the municipality. She said that it is “always welcome” to have an innovative app that will make people’s car journeys easier.
Park’nPay is available across 48 suburbs in NSW including The Rocks, Ryde, Double Bay, Cumberland, Rozelle, Balmain, Leichhardt, Liverpool, Mosman, Central Coast, Hunters Hill, Burwood, The Northern Beaches, Port Stephens, Willoughby, Armidale, Parramatta Park, Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens and NSW National Parks.
The app also provides information on real-time parking availability for 26 Transport for NSW Commuter Carparks, locations of electric vehicle charging stations and more than 18,000 private driveways to rent.
