EXCHANGE OF UNUSED OLD PARKING COUPONS
"Motorists can also exchange their old parking coupons for new ones by topping up the difference in value at 155 locations islandwide.
"These include 131 petrol stations, in addition to the 23 HDB Branches/Service Centres and The URA Centre," the statement added.
HDB and URA also said coupon exchanges at the participating petrol stations will be available from Dec 1, 2016 to Jan 31, 2017. SPC petrol stations are not part of the exchange programme.
For motorists who wish to exchange their coupons earlier, they can do so at any of the HDB Branches/Service Centres and The URA Centre from Oct 12, 2016. There is no deadline for the exchange at these locations, the statement said.
The new rates were released by the HDB and URA in Jun 30 and will take effect from Dec 1, 2016. The announcement came after the agencies said that a review of public car park charges was being conducted.
