Sydney's parking problem

When we surveyed NRMA Members in May 2019, 77 per cent believed that parking prices are too high. 

It's not hard to see why: the Sydney CBD has the lowest ratio of car spaces to workers in Australia, with 12.2 spaces for every 100 workers. Globally, these ratios are some of the lowest. 

A further frustration for Members, particularly in the Sydney CBD, is the ambiguity of parking pricing and availability throughout the day. This includes on-street and off-street parking where confusing signage means pricing is not transparent.

So we know how difficult and expensive it can be to park in and around Sydney, especially in the CBD or near Sydney Airport. That's why we've added a parking finder to the my nrma app and have teamed up with some great partners to offer parking discounts to our Members.
