How long you can park for
All Pay by Space parks have time restrictions. Most are limited to 120 minutes (P120), with some 30-minute spaces (P30) near Wellington Railway Station. Check the parking meter screen for information about how long you can park for.
Pay by Space parks have a sensor installed in the ground. This means your time starts from the moment your vehicle enters the parking space, not from when payment is made.
Longer term parking
10-hour Pay by Space parking is available on Oriental Parade, Kent Terrace, Cambridge Terrace, Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road. Check the parking meter screen for information about how long you can park for.
There are coupon parking spaces on the fringes of the city where you can park up to 2 hours for free, or buy a coupon to park longer.
