Car wash and dry cleaning

Auckland Transport has partnered with The Clean NZ and Ceda Drycleaning to offer car washing and dry cleaning drop-off/pick-up when you park your vehicle.

Parking scenarios to help calculate your parking costs

Scenario 1: Park on Friday after 5pm and leave the car there until Monday, 7am. Total cost: $7.50 x 3 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) + $3 for one hour on Monday = $25.50

Scenario 2: Park on Friday at 7am and leave at 10pm. Total cost = $17 - the maximum daily rate during the week.

Scenario 3: Park on Friday at 8pm and return later than you planned. Will you be able to get your car out?

Downtown carpark is open from 6am Friday until 12am Sunday so you will be able to remove your car at any time before midnight on Sunday. If you want to remove your car when the carpark is closed (eg. between 12am Sunday and 6am Monday), you will need to pay a release fee.
