Perth Car Parking Levy not yet spent on public transport


According to a recent news article, parking levies in
the Perth CBD area have not (yet) been fully spent on the Perth CAT buses. Of
the nearly $60 million collected from Perth car park owners in parking levies
since 2009, only $22 million have been spent on the service thus far.

The Property Council of Australia, the City of Perth
and the RAC are “demanding” that the Government deliver on its promise and
spend the remaining $38 million on improving public transport.

The
levy, introduced in 1999, applies to CBD premises with more than five car
spaces; the levy amount in 2009-10 was $586 per bay. The 200% increase in that
year was attributed to the need to finance the CAT services and free transit
zone travel.
