The Tipner Park and Ride has 664 spaces, but takes on average some 900 cars a day. Demand is particularly strong on weekends and public holidays, with many people using the service to get to Gunwharf.


The City Council pays First Bus to run the buses, but with passengers numbers consistently ahead of expectations, the service is already breaking even. Were there more available parking spaces, it would even make a profit.


There was always an intention to add additional tiers of parking as demand rises, but given the costs involved that may not happen yet.
