What does this mean for parking and transport?

​​The wellbeing of our community and our team ​are our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the advice from the Government and Ministry of Health and will be updating our website as new information becomes available. ​​

Alert Level 1

What's happening with road works?
Our road works programme has returned to business as usual. There may be some delays on non-urgent matters as we work to catch up on activities/service requests we were unable to attend to during previous alert levels. Our transportation team will continue to receive and prioritise service requests from the public.

What about parking?
If you are planning to use carparks (on-street, off-street or carpark buildings), contactless payments are available in most places. If you need to make payment with coins/notes at a parking meter or pay station, consider sanitising or washing your hands as soon as practicable afterwards. 

To make a contactless payment at on-street parking meters, use the PayMyPark APP. The PayMyPark APP makes parking easy, simply find a park and start your parking. No more guessing how long you need to pay for. Running late? Just extend your parking, no need to run back to the meter and no more touching coins. Finished early? Stop your parking and get a refund back to your account. The PayMyPark APP is also able to calculate your two-hours free parking in the CBD.

The Garden Place carpark is open and our parking team have returned to their daily duties to ensure everyone has equal opportunity to use the parking facilities available.

Is the Transport Centre operating as normal?
Yes, the Transport Centre building opened during Alert Level 2 on reduced hours. We will return to normal operating hours from Wednesday 10 June (Monday – Friday 7am to 6pm, Saturday – Sunday 9am – 4pm). Central Government are requesting to keep up with hygiene and QR codes where possible. Therefore, when you enter the building please register with one of the many QR code posters we have around our centre and wash your hands regularly. 

What about buses?
The bus service is run by Waikato Regional Council. For all information and updates on bus services, please visit www.busit.co.nz or www.waikatoregion.govt.nz.​​
