Today is the last chance for Auckland motorists to have their say on a hike in CBD parking costs.

Consultation is underway over Auckland Transport's parking proposal to remove time restrictions, and replace them with single pricing.

It'll see hourly rates of between $3 and $5, and between $5 and $8 each hour thereafter, so potentially costing around $30 for four hours' parking.

Auckland Transport expects to raise about $4.5 million in the next financial year from a new scheme from an almost 40 per cent increase in on-street parking revenue.


People can make a submission through the Auckland Transport website.
