Kerbside demands within the Sydney city centre

An integrated network

Competing user demands within the city centre are key drivers for change. Transport demands in the city centre are increasing, with a growth in freight, construction and general road users, including drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and public transport users.

The majority of all day street parking was removed from the Sydney city centre in 2015, to facilitate better movement throughout the city centre and more effectively enable the use of (under-utilised) off street parking available throughout the city centre. In order to guide the allocation of kerbside space, the City of Sydney Central Sydney Parking Policy identifies the following hierarchy:

  1. Public Transport
  2. Taxis
  3. Goods delivery, including servicing
  4. Mobility parking
  5. Emergency and essential services parking
  6. Coach pick up and set down
  7. General pick up and set down for hotels and venues
  8. General parking


Continue to actively monitor and manage kerbside use demands to provide a balanced approach for all road users.
