City reduces parking fares at Bulls Head
Motorists will now pay $2 less to park on the top level of Bulls Head Car Park.
And parking vouchers have been reintroduced for a limited time to assist drivers who travel into Hamilton infrequently.
“The City of Hamilton is pleased to announce that as of October 3, the cost to park on the top level of the Bulls Head Car Park has been reduced to $5 a day,” said Edward Benevides, the City of Hamilton’s chief operating officer and secretary.
“We continually assess all of the parking rates in the City and looked at how frequently the top level of Bulls Head was being used.”
He continued: “Last year we announced the decision to phase out the parking voucher booklets and fully adopt Easy Park meters. Since then we received feedback from motorists who park infrequently in the city. As a result, I am pleased to announce the limited reintroduction of parking vouchers which can be purchased individually rather than in booklets.
“These vouchers are available immediately and only from City Hall. They are $2 per voucher and will pay for one hour of parking. It should be noted that there are some retailers around the Island who are still selling booklets of the old parking vouchers. These booklets may be in limited supply and are still valid for parking within the City.”
Persons who park on the top level of Bulls Head can use their Easy Park meters; those who use the parking meter there will receive a sticker indicating they have paid to park at that level. Said Mr Benevides: “If motorists wish to use their Easy Park meters to pay for parking, they should look for 0104 which is the code assigned to the top level of Bulls Head. Please note that the Easy Park meters must be updated in order to take advantage of the new zone.”
