Thread: Anywhere to park car around Penninsular for short while?

  1. #1

    Default Anywhere to park car around Penninsular for short while?

    I go frequently to that area to run short errands such as picking up film, dropping off film for developing, etc. and it really irritates me how much I need to pay to park at Funan, Peninsular Plaza, etc. for like, 10 mins!

    Anyone has any idea where I can park for 5-10 mins for a reasonable rate (or better yet, free?)

    Thanks!

    If u can afford a car, why cant u pay a few dollars for car park? Dont flame me, but this has become a phenomenon.

    Ok, I have a spreadsheet with all (most) carparks charges in CBD/Orchard area. Give me yr email and I wil send to you. Hope this will help to ease the illegal parking phenomenon in Singapore.
    Sometimes, you park illegally to save a few dollars, but you cause many cars behind you to jam, stuck, move out dangerously, create blind spot, that is a selfish act in itself.

    sorry ah, but I have to say this, so don't take it personally

    In achieving some small convenience for yourself, are you willing to seriously inconvenience or endanger all the people behind you?

    Support your view!!!

    Same question came to me this afternoon when I wanted to make a fast purchase for something in Funan.

    Which is the cheapest and not illegally?

    Can I share your spreadsheet?

    if u can afford to pay $500 a month in installment for a car, u surely can afford $1 for an hour parking in capitol building.

    It's $2, not $1 btw. And I parked there for a mere 6 mins just a few days ago; thought there should be a grace period, like the other carparks.

    If you don't want to get a fine and parking is too ex. than......... get use to using BMW that will settle your problum.

    Oh, by the way......... BMW stands for:
    B: BUS
    M: MRT
    W: WALK
