Transport Park&Ride car parks

Park for free when you ride public transport

Transport Park&Ride is designed to free-up more spaces at commuter car parks for those who want to travel on public transport.

Using either an accepted Opal card or via your Opal Connect account, Park&Ride allows you to access up to 18 hours free parking each day when you complete a valid public transport journey.

Located close to public transport hubs, Park&Ride car parks helps you connect more easily to bus, train and ferry services.

Watch the video above to find out how to use Transport Park&Ride car parks.

How it works

To qualify for free Transport Park&Ride parking, you must:

  • Be the holder of a valid Adult, Child/Youth, Gold Senior/Pensioner or Concession Opal card
  • Park in a dedicated Transport Park&Ride car park
  • Tap on and tap off with your Opal card to complete a trip on public transport
  • Use the same Opal card to tap out of the car park within 18 hours of entering
  • Opal single trip tickets, School Opal cards and contactless-enabled cards and devices (e.g. credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay) are not accepted at Transport Park&Ride car parks.
  • Where your most recent Opal card transaction has been for travel on the Manly Ferry, your trip will not be recognised at Transport Park&Ride car parks and you will need to pay a parking fee.
  • Tap on reversals (where an Opal card is tapped on and tapped off at the same location within 30 minutes, and has not been used to complete a trip) cannot be used to validate free parking at Transport Park&Ride car parks.
  • Where you exit a Transport Park&Ride car park within 20 minutes of entering, you will not be required to validate car park access with an Opal card and no parking fee will apply.
  • If you want to use any Transport Park&Ride car park more than once and qualify for free parking, you must allow a minimum of two hours between tap outs at the exit. 
  • These conditions apply to all Transport Park&Ride car parks at all times.
  • Car park users will be charged a parking fee in line with commercial parking rates where Transport Park&Ride conditions are not met.
  • Some car parks use number plate recognition technology to record time of entry and exit.
  • If you have a valid integrated event ticket that includes public transport, use the intercom at the exit gate and show your event ticket to the car park operator who can manually open the gate.

Your Privacy

Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is committed to protecting our customers’ personal information in accordance with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW).

We collect certain information when drivers enter and exit Transport Park&Ride car parks so that we can determine if commuters are eligible for free parking. Upon entry to the car park, technology located within the access control system collects the vehicle’s number plate and records it with a time and date stamp. When exiting, the Opal card machine reads the Opal card number and matches this with the last valid tap off made with that Opal card on any public transport mode to check if a valid journey has occurred within 18 hours since the vehicle entered the car park.

We will only use the above information for this purpose or a directly related purpose. The Opal sequence number is retained only for as long as required to validate eligibility for free parking or to settle refunds. Hashed Opal card numbers and de-identified journey data may be stored by TfNSW and used for internal planning and research purposes.

Anonymised postcode information is also collected from Roads and Maritime Services for the purpose of assessing customer demand for future planning purposes.

Entry to a Transport Park&Ride commuter car park is conditional on the collection of this information.

Your information will be securely managed by, or on behalf of, TfNSW from its head office at 18 Lee Street Chippendale 2008. You can ask to access or amend your personal information held by us at any time during business hours.

We will not disclose your personal information unless you consent, or we are permitted or required to by law.
