How to Get Better Motorbike Parking Rates in Singapore (2022)
Parking fees are an extra daily expense that motorists can’t avoid. Unless you decide to use public transport to work of course.
And while car drivers may consider $10 for all-day parking reasonably cheap, surely motorcyclists shouldn’t have to pay that much. So, we’ve put together a list of parking spots to consider, if you own a motorcycle and want to get better parking rates in Singapore.
HDB Season Parking for Motorcycles
If there is a HDB parking lot nearby, that’s always a good choice to park your motorcycle at a cheaper rate. Season parking at HDB areas in Singapore costs between $15 per month for unsheltered carparks or $17 per month for sheltered spots.
You could even top up to concessionary season parking (CPST) for $20 per month, allowing you to park at white motorcycle lots at all HDB carparks as well as most Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) carparks.
Coupon Parking for Motorcycles
Another good option for parking your motorcycle is the 65-cent HDB or URA parking, payable by coupon. You can buy the parking coupons at authorised sale outlets. This includes Cheers, 7-Eleven, most petrol kiosks and other appointed sale outlets that display the “authorised coupon” signboard at their premises.
With a coupon, you can leave your motorcycle parked at a URA/HDB parking lot from 7 am to 10.30pm or overnight from 10.30pm to 7am the following day. This is definitely the most cost-effective option for motorcycle riders that wish to park at open-air carparks in Singapore, such as the downtown area.

Ultimate Bonus: Free Parking for Motorcycles at Orchard
Many people in Singapore will notice that there aren’t any parking lots for motorbikes at Orchard Road? However, if you’re willing to walk 10 to 15 minutes to your destination, you can easily find free parking for motorcycles here.
These are a couple options of where to go:
- If you’re headed to Orchard Central, where Somerset 313, Peranakan Place and the Heeren are located, you can park for free at Concorde Hotel.
- If you’re headed to ION Orchard, park at the Anguilla Park open air URA car park beside Wheelock Place.
There are also several URA lots behind Lido and Pacific Plaza on Claymore Hill and Claymore Road, close to the Tanglin Club and the American Club. These parking lots usually see less traffic than Anguilla Park and are worth a try if you’re tired of waiting for a spot.
Park with Peace of Mind
While in the past, it was easy to find free parking for motorcycles in most shopping centers, it seems this is no longer the case now. Motorcycle parking rates at malls in Singapore can go as high as $6 for 2 hours.
So, if parking in a mall gets expensive, you can always seek out URA/HDB open air carparks using the parking.sg app.
