Daily Telegraph $142 dollars a day just to park a car in Sydney

Read the story in today’s Daily Telegraph – here is our survey.

THE cost of car commuting is being driven to absurd levels by State Government greed.

A new survey reveals parking in Sydney costs as much as $35 an hour, or $142 a day.

We have the fifth-most expensive parking in the world.

And a 110 per cent increase in a state tax – the parking space levy – is to blame.

“Tax is a driver,” said Gerard McLennan, co-founder of website carparking.info, which conducted the survey of space prices for The Daily Telegraph. “The parking levy had a big impact when the Government upped it by 110 per cent.”
