Parking rates for motorcycles will be charged on a per minute basis, instead of at a flat rate, to help delivery riders who use multiple carparks in a day.

These will apply to Housing Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) carparks with electronic parking systems, said National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Monday.

It will be of "practical help to the lower income, particularly those who work hard to better their lives", he said in Parliament.

He was responding to Dr Lee Bee Wah (Nee Soon GRC), who had highlighted a problem faced by despatch and delivery riders who are "generally low income".
