City Parking says it has increased parking fees in Harare by about 250% with effect from August 1.
The company confirmed the increase in a circular that has been sent out to the media and other stakeholders.
This notice serves to inform the motoring public that the parking tariff in Harare CBD has been adjusted as follows, inner CBD $5 per hour, $3 for 30 min. The Peripheral CBD has been adjusted to $3 per hour.
City Parking Marketing Manager Francis Mandza said the increase was necessitated by the skyrocketing cost of goods and services in the country.
“This is normal and we are just following suit to all other prices that are surging. he said adding that the reason behind the increase is largely due to the economic situation in the country.
Added Mandaza: “If we do not increase the fee we will not be able to buy some of the stuff we need as City Park.”
