Commuters to Pay

The following is an extract from Channel 10. Late last year Council decided to reduce the congestion in some streets close to the tram by  installing parking meters that would allow for 4 hour paid parking for as little as a $1 per hour. The free tram from South Tce has made it cheap and easy to get into the city; you park, walk across the parklands and then get on a free tram- as far as the Entertainment Centre. If residents are happy should Council be concerned about complaints from people living further south who could have just as easily paid to catch a bus a lot closer to home?

Commuters parking before catching trams will have to pay an Unley Council fee. Local residents want carpark congestion to end. The trial will charge up to $4 per day in streets in Wayville and Goodwood. The Council sent a letter to residents blaming Adelaide City Council for reducing parking spaces in the city, along with the State Government's proposed parking levy. The Government says it will monitor the plan in case it deters people from using public transport.
