Adelaide’s UPark Launches Touch-Free Parking
The City of Adelaide has implemented an innovative new online platform to assist in safer, touch-free parking at a significantly discounted price across all nine UPark locations.
UPark Plus has been developed in partnership with Adelaide-based organisations ADVAM and DESIGNA Australia and gives $8 capped, touch-free daily parking when customers sign up online and use the new card.
The announcement follows the City of Adelaide’s comprehensive $4 million City Support Package currently being delivered to support the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor said Council wanted to support businesses and workers who are providing essential services, as well as visitors coming into the city for important goods and services.
“This fantastic online platform will provide a cheap, convenient & contactless parking experience for people coming into the Adelaide CBD,” said the Lord Mayor.
“The reduced rate of $8 for all day parking will be of great benefit to many city workers, but I am particularly keen to see emergency and health services workers and shift workers benefit.
“UPark Plus will help city workers, students and visitors easily park in the city at any time, without having to worry about touching any ticket machines or repeatedly pre-booking online.
“I am proud of how quickly our team has worked with local businesses to provide such a cheap, convenient and contactless parking experience for our community.”
The $8 capped daily rate is an introductory offer for April and will be reviewed as we work to deliver for our community in these challenging times.
