Raya is just around the corner and we have news that will definitely make your holiday even better, especially if you’re planning to visit Melaka during the upcoming long weekend!

Today (13 June 2018), The Star reported that Melaka will not impose parking fees on weekends and public holidays anymore, according to Tey Kok Kiew, chairman of the Melaka Housing, Local Government and Environment Committee. This implementation will begin on 15 June 2018, which is the first day of Raya and it will also apply to tourist hot spots all over Melaka. Yass, no more parking charges!

“Free parking covers tourism belts including Taman Melaka Raya, Bandar Hilir and Jonker Walk.”

“We hope the move will draw more tourists to the state and put an end to the menace of touts collecting parking fees,” said Tey who also noted that the implementation was in line with Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto.

Prior to this, the rate of parking charges that were being collected within Melaka’s city centre during the weekends were between 40 sen and 60 sen per hour. The rates were the same for weekdays too! 

Therefore, Tey explained that 14,115 parking bays under the Melaka Historical City Council’s (MBMB) will stop charging for parking starting this Friday (15 June 2018). Wow, that’s a lot of parking bays!

Besides that, he also shared that the parking hours during weekdays have been changed from the current 8am to 6pm, to the new timing of 9am to 5pm. So, do be mindful of the designated hours of parking when you’re visiting Melaka.

However, Tey said that the parking fee exclusion doesn’t include private parking areas or the 12 privatised companies commissioned MBMB like;

  • The Melaka Sentral transitional market in Bachang
  • Tabung Haji Complex
  • Jalan Kota Museum

Hence, even though there will not be any parking fee collection on weekends and public holidays, the parking charges on weekdays will remain the same at;

  • 40sen for 1/2 hour
  • 60sen for 1 hour
  • RM5 for full-day parking

Looks like our future trips to Melaka will incur less cost if we travel during weekends and on public holidays. We’re predicting a bigger wave of tourists visiting the historical city too!
