Visitors to Fremantle have until Friday to download the City of Fremantle’s PayStay app and register for an entire month of free parking.
New users who download the PayStay app and use it to park in Fremantle before 5pm on 23 October will receive free parking throughout the month of November when they opt in at fremantle.wa.gov.au/freeparking.
PayStay users can also put themselves in the running to win free parking for a whole year by filling out a simple survey on the City’s website.
Mayor Brad Pettitt said the ‘Parking Smartz’ campaign offered a tremendous opportunity for people to park for free in Fremantle.
“There are lots of reasons why paid parking is necessary in a place like Fremantle and our rates are actually very reasonable but, just like it has been for other local governments, the issue of paying for parking has been a matter of debate in Fremantle for a long time,” Mayor Pettitt said.
“For those people who think parking in Fremantle is too difficult or too expensive, here’s a chance to download and use the PayStay app right now and get free parking for a whole month.
“The PayStay app is really easy to use, has lots of handy features and actually saves you money because you only pay for the time you use.
“With the weather warming up it’s absolutely gorgeous in Freo right now, and with a whole month of free parking on offer it’s the perfect time to come down, soak up the sun and enjoy everything that makes Fremantle Perth’s favourite entertainment precinct.”
The ‘Parking Smartz’ initiative is part of the City of Fremantle’s COVID-19 community and economic recovery efforts.
The free parking for November is only available to new PayStay users, but existing users can still complete the survey and win one of five permits for free parking for a year.
