The ability to park our vehicles (cars, bicycles, motorcycles or service vehicles) within a reasonable walking distance of our houses or destinations is an important part of our transport system.
The City of Hobart manages parking on public streets in Hobart, as well as on land that we own. Where demand for parking is higher than the supply, we often need to install and enforce parking restrictions.
Shoppers and visitors can access a range of car parks all within easy walking distance of key destinations in the city centre. Off-street and multi-storey car parks are placed at strategic locations throughout the city.
