SINGAPORE - Motorcyclists will be able to use a new season parking ticket from Jan 1, 2015, the Housing Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said on Wednesday.

The Concessionary Season Parking Ticket for Motorcycles (CSPT) will allow short-term parking at most HDB and URA car parks for a flat monthly fee of $20.

"The CPST will make parking more affordable for motorcyclists, especially despatch and delivery riders who need to frequent several car parks daily during the course of their work," said both agencies in a statement.

The move comes after per-minute parking for motorcycles was implemented at HDB and URA car parks with Electronic Parking Systems in July, to help motorcyclists making short stops save on their parking fees.

Motorcyclists with an existing HDB Season Parking Ticket, which can be used only at a motorist's registered car park, will have the option of topping up their existing ticket by $3 or $5. The prevailing motorcycle monthly season parking charges are $15 for surface car parks and $17 for covered car parks.

The new season parking ticket can be purchased via HDB e-Services or at HDB Branches from Jan 1, 2015.
