Parking and transport

Parking finders - car, motorcycle and bike parking

The City Centre Car Park closed on 30 September 2021 in order to facilitate the construction of Sydney Metro West. For alternative parking options, please use the Parking Finder.  

 

There are more than 4,700 on-street and off-street (multi-level car park) parking spaces in the City of Parramatta, and Council’s Parking Finder can help you find one close to your destination.

Parking Finder works in ‘real time’, and will let you know the best place to park - just type in the name of the business you’re visiting or an address.

Parking Finder will show you options for free parking, kiss and ride spaces, accessible parking, bike parking and paid parking including in Council’s multi-level car park stations – just tick the type of parking you need, and type in how long you need to park.

If you’re looking to park at one of Council’s multi-level parking stations, just search Justice Precinct; Parramatta Station or Eat Street, and you can see how busy any station is at any time.

If you are looking for a park at a later time, just select a day and time in the future and Parking Finder will show predicted availability based on historical data so you know how busy it will be when you want a spot!

Note: Council offers up to 20 minutes free parking at its Parramatta Station Car Park on Monday to Saturday and up four (4) hours free parking at all its multi-level parking stations on Sundays. Parking at multi-level car parks starts at $3 per hour.
