Coupon parking sign.

Coupon parking zones are in the areas on the fringe of the central business district and are clearly marked with blue signs. 

Coupon parking applies from Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm.


See the coupon parking zone map (1.39MB KB PDF)


The first 2 hours in coupon parking zones are free.

After that, you will need to display a valid coupon on your windscreen or side window, or pay for a coupon using PayMyPark.

Coupon type Charge
Daily coupon $8.50
Calendar monthly coupon $135.00


Restrictions apply to some coupon zones in Thorndon. Check the sign to confirm if you need to display a coupon or not. 

Public holidays

On public holidays, you can park in a coupon park for as long as you like without displaying a coupon.
