Parking Meters

Macquarie Park is the only area within City of Ryde that has on-street parking meters. The Macquarie Park corridor has experienced significant growth in recent years and continues to be a high demand area for workers, students and visitors. On-street parking meters are one of the parking provisions used to ease demand for parking and congestion in this growth area.

Parking time limits may apply and are indicated by signage in the zoned areas. All parking meters display user-friendly instructions to help you pay for a parking meter ticket. The current rate is $3.50 per hour.

Ticket Parking Meter Areas

Parking Meter Areas have signage in place to indicate the time restrictions. A map of current metered areas is available for download(PDF, 959KB). Please note, the map is subject to change. Motorists must observe all relevant signage and restrictions in place.
