The City of Sydney has introduced free 15-minute ticket parking zones in the retail areas of village main streets outside the city centre. The year-long trial of free 15-minute ticket parking covers the following streets in the local area:

  • Harris Street, Pyrmont
  • Glebe Point Road, Glebe
  • King Street, Newtown
  • Crown Street, Surry Hills
  • Redfern Street, Redfern
  • William Street, Darlinghurst
  • Macleay Street, Potts Point
  • Victoria Street, Darlinghurst
  • Oxford Street, Darlinghurst.

Most of these streets started the trial on 2 and 3 December 2013. The trial started in the remaining zones along William Street between Yurong and Crown streets, along Crown Street between Oxford and Foveaux streets and along Oxford Street between College and Crown streets on 18 December 2013.

Parking meters in the retail areas of these streets, detailed in the map below, will feature clear signage outlining the free 15-minute ticket option. A map of locations is also available for download below.

To park in the 15-minute free ticket zone you will need to press a button marked '¼ P free with ticket' and place the ticket on your dashboard.

If you intend to park longer than 15 minutes you must buy a normal longer stay ticket when you first park your vehicle.
