The State Government regulates and licenses parking in central Perth as part of a policy to provide a balanced transport network, manage congestion and provide an efficient transport system to, from and within the city centre.

The free Central Area Transit (CAT) bus service, funded by the Perth Parking Levy.

  How is parking managed in central Perth?

The Perth Parking Policy guides the management of parking that falls within the Perth Parking Management Area (PPMA).

The policy supports the delivery of a balanced and sustainable transport network, to manage congestion and provide for the efficient movement of people to, from and within the city centre, helping to create a safe, vibrant and connected place to live, work and visit.

The Perth Parking Levy is one of the mechanisms by which the policy is implemented. Under the Perth Parking Management Act (1999), all non-residential parking bays within the PPMA are licensed and an annual levy must be paid on these bays where applicable.

Funds raised by the Perth Parking Levy through licence fees are spent within the PPMA (Perth, East Perth, West Perth and Northbridge) to deliver services such as the free Central Area Transit (CAT) bus service, the Free Transit Zone for public transport, active traffic management services and new infrastructure such as the Causeway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge.

This investment into transport projects and initiatives helps to reduce the impact of, and need for cars within the area, creating safer environments for people walking and riding and, increasing amenity to work, shop and socialise directly benefiting the community and businesses.
