Motorcycle & scooter parking
There are specific places throughout the city where you can park your motorcycle or scooter.
Illegally parked motorcycles and scooters will be ticketed.
Where you can park your motorcycle or scooter
Where possible, park off the public road and use public and private parking facilities. This helps to free up space for other riders to come and go during the day.
