Parking revenue in the 2010-11 financial year was $25.8m.
That’s big money – around $100 per person.
Transport portfolio leader Andy Foster said he thought people would appreciate the new “customer-friendly” technology being investigated.
One of the initiatives was a text message service that reminded people when their parking meter was about to run out, and gave them the option of topping up via their phone.
That would be excellent. I use my cellphone to pay most times, and would love that service.
