To kickstart a conversation among Aucklanders about the future of parking across Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland Transport (AT) has released the Parking in Auckland discussion document, Auckland Council reports. The amount of parking space on our roads affects how much is allocated for traffic, as well as bus and high occupancy vehicle lanes. Parking space on roads also affects nearby footpaths, cycleways, and even street trees. This means that on-street parking affects all Aucklanders with the costs and missed opportunities arising from parking paid for by ratepayers.
