    Default New per-minute motorbike parking charges



    New per-minute motorbike parking charges to save money for delivery riders , True ?

    SINGAPORE - Motorcyclists making brief stays in car parks are set to benefit from a new 'per-minute' charging system to be introduced on Tuesday.

    Currently bikers pay a flat rate of 65 cents for each day or night parking session, regardless of how many times they enter or leave the car park in that period.

    However, under the new system they will be charged 0.3 cents per minute - equal to 20 cents an hour - up to a maximum cap of 65 cents per parking session.

    With a cap at 65 cents, it's means we pay lesser.

    Since they have already moved away from coupons and implementing EPS almost islandwide... it seems that its beneficial. Unless if there's a chance that they might ever go back to allowing bikes to use coupons. But on the bright side, it isn't worst than what we're currently playing at carparks with EPS isn't it? I honestly find that there's nothing to complain about.

    We all love the coupon days. I miss them too, but it seems like they're never going back to that.
    Now tear coupon, must search high and low another carpark with coupon parking, so... rare...

    Legally speaking, each coupon only entitles you to park at a single carpark. So legally speaking, this new per minute system would allow you to pay cheaper parking rates if you park less than 3 hours each time. Using one coupon for multiple carparks would definitely be cheaper, but that isn't strictly legal..

    This change affects the calculation of the electronic system only, hence comparing it back to coupon days is wrong comparison.

    Under the new charging method, despatch rider with pay less. If they go to an electronic carpark, they are charged less. If they go to a coupon carpark, they still have to use coupon, regardless of now or old system.

    However, one should watch out if the cap of 65 cents is going to increase or not...

    I find it better this way. I always visit my friend who stays near a carpark that is EPS. I go in for 1 hour I also pay 65cents... now instead I will pay 20cents only... Which is better lah. Coupon parking wise wouldn't affect what since most riders just reuse the coupons on the same day at different car parks...

    dunno why some idiot think this new system is not a good idea... this is benefit for those despatch rider who only enter the carpark for short period. And its doesn't impact on us who park for long hours. Although it is hourly charge but it still will have a max cap of charging as what usually it cost to park per entry cost.

    Because coupons will be at the edge of extinction where in this current situation, EPS is almost everywhere!
    I agree the 1 coupon = 65 cents a day all day anywhere everywhere, but gone are the days.

    then you always find a place that use coupon loh. or else gantry carpark always stick behind a car when the car exiting the gantry so you won't pay for it.

    Btw lets say 1hr parking in gantry cost u $0.20. 5 carpark = $1.00. $1.00 will be too much for you? Want to ride don't kay gao so much for the parking. I used to be like that kay gao for parking and ERP until my friend kinda look down on me. And now i change the mindset. No offense btw.

    I will prefer EPS system over using coupon. Maybe I am lazy to write on the coupon and tear the coupon. Sometime have to worry the coupon might be wet from rain or being taken away by itchy finger. Or worst no coupon when you need it. EPS parking saved all this trouble. Plus now with the new per min charges, it is a welcome changes.

    But if I would like more changes, I would prefer they in-cooperate an electronic parking coupon system in the IU unit. Just key in the information and deduct the amount from cashcard to activate the coupon. The warden will just need to scan the IU to see if there is any active coupon or not.

    this is good change. Love it. When you ran out of parking coupons, it is hell trying to find a shop selling the coupons.

    It is cheaper than the one coupon to park at all carparks in a day. How many carparks do you go in a day anyway?

    Bring to HDB office at your home area to change. As long as they are unused, they will exchange it with you. No time frame for the exchange.
    I think even if you bring those with 2011/2012 coupon, they will still exchange with you.

    Sometimes, I go to my friends place for supper. Carpark is EPS, I go into carpark between 10 & 10.30pm and exit about midnight.
    Total deduction is $1.30 when exit. Sometimes feel like parking on kerb.

    So I think the EPS per minute charging is better in above situation.
