Towing in Perth CBD

Getting to and from the city is a major challenge for thousands of commuters who travel through Perth’s CBD each week day. Nearly 125,000 people work in the CBD and the majority try to enter and exit at the same time.

To help with traffic flow, vehicles will be towed to a secure compound if they are stopped illegally in Clearways, No Stopping zones or designated Bus Lanes.

How to avoid getting your vehicle towed

Whenever you stop or park in the Perth CBD, check the signs around your vehicle. View the towing zones map for Clearways and Bus Lane locations.

If you have parked illegally in a Clearway, No Stopping zone or Bus Lane and your vehicle is gone when you return, check the signs around you.
