Brisbane parking meters to no longer accept cash

RACQ has warned motorists to expect permanent changes to on-street parking after Brisbane City Council announced cash payments would no longer be available.

Club spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said from 22 February parking meters would only accept contactless payments.

“If you’re visiting anywhere in the Brisbane City Council area you’ll no longer be able to use your loose change to pay for on-street parking,” Ms Ritchie said.

“Drivers will instead need to use Tap n’ Go, their debit or credit cards or they can use the CellOPark Australia app.

“We encourage drivers to double check signage and make sure they always have a card or charged phone with them so they’re able to pay for their parking.”
