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!

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 :D

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
