With unprecedented development and renewal taking place in Newcastle, we are working to ensure the city remains open for business.

Council is offering alternative parking options to make your daily commute easier, whether you are headed to Newcastle East, the Civic Precinct, Newcastle West or Wickham.

Park and Ride: We want to get as many commuters as possible using our park and ride service operating at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Users can dodge the rush-hour traffic, skip the parking hassles, and park, ride, relax and – at just $2.20 a day – save money. For commuters paying $8 a day and working 48 weeks a year, this is a savings of almost $1440

No2 Sportsground: No.2 Sportsground car park has 200 parking spaces, including six disabled spaces, just six minutes' walk from the King St fare-free bus stop, seven minutes to Hunter Street and eight minutes to Honeysuckle's business centre. At just $6 a day Monday-Friday and free on weekends, this is one of the cheapest all-day paid parking options anywhere in the city centre. 

EasyPark mobile app: Our new smart phone app means that you no longer have to feed coins into the meter or swipe your credit card at the meter. 

Commuters who use our park-and-ride service from the stadium can also use the app to pay for parking remotely. Find more information about all of these services at council's website, newcastle.nsw.gov.au.
