MBSJ has Imposed a Two-Hour Parking Limit in Congested Locations

· Industry Updates

Because many of the lots are taken up "permanently" by persons who work in the neighborhood, finding street parking can be difficult in some major commercial locations. The city council of Subang Jaya (MBSJ) has proposed a solution: a two-hour parking limit in such locations.

MBSJ's proposal will be implemented on June 1, according to Subang Jaya mayor Johary Anuar, and possible commercial locations under its jurisdiction that are being evaluated include USJ 9 and 10 (Taipan), SS19, Bandar Puteri Puchong, and Bandar Sunway.

"They'll be called 'two-hour parking zones.'" We're also looking into other routes and areas. According to The Star, he indicated this week that the tariffs for these zones will be 60 sen for half an hour or RM1.20 per hour. The transfer had been in the works for some time, according to Johary.

"Rather than being dominated by individuals who work there, we want to make the street-parking facilities open to visitors to the region." "We'll put in place a system to monitor vehicles parked in these zones and warn our enforcement officers if somebody is parked for longer than is permitted," 

MBSJ also announced that beginning April 1, the public parking system will move to entirely online payment options. Scratch coupons and pay-and-display parking machines will be phased out on March 31, and will be replaced with mobile apps and e-coupons. Apps like Smart Selangor Parking, Flexi Parking, Jom Parking, and e-wallets like Boost and Touch n Go will continue to work.
