Paid parking resumes across Toowoomba’s CBD at Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) on-street and off-street car parks from Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

TRC Infrastructure Services portfolio leader Cr Melissa Taylor is reminding motorists that the regular schedule of parking fees will apply at all Council-operated parking spaces from the start of the new financial year.

Cr Taylor said Council suspended all car parking fees in late April as part of its $10.5 million stage one pandemic economic relief package.

“Council offered relief to motorists and showed its support for city businesses by waiving all parking fees through to June 30, 2020,” Cr Taylor said.

“This package complemented state and federal government initiatives which directly targeted support for eligible businesses and their employees who were affected by the Coronavirus lockdown across the country.

“Motorists are reminded that free one-hour parking is still available in Ruthven and Margaret streets in Toowoomba’s CBD (in Margaret Street between Neil and Victoria Streets and Ruthven Street between Herries Street and Chalk Drive).

“Residents also can take advantage of a number of five and 10-minute parking bays on either side of Ruthven and Margaret Streets.

“Residents who need more than an hour for CBD appointments are reminded that Central Car Park, which can be accessed via Neil and Annand streets, offers an hourly rate of $1 up to a maximum of $3 for three hours.

“Weekly parking tickets are available at all of Council’s off-street car parks (excluding the Toowoomba Bus Station Car Park), with discounted weekly parking available at Herries/Water Street Car Park and Station Street Car Park.”
