End to free train station parking

People entitled to free travel, including seniors and carers, will also need to pay for parking.

The Government wants commuters to register for the paid parking system, SmartParker, before July 1.

To access the cashless, ticketless system, they will need to link their car registrations with their SmartRider online, after which they can park, swipe their cards and head straight to the station. At most stations, buying printed tickets with cash to display in cars will still be an option.

The fee will apply from 5am-9pm, Monday-Friday. Visit transperth.wa.gov.au or call 13 62 13.
