HB 5099: Parking Fees Regulation Act pegs fee at Php40

A new House Bill, authored by Valenzuela City Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian, is being proposed to limit initial parking fees at only Php40 and regulates the rate of establishments with parking facilities.

House Bill 5099 or the Parking Fees Regulation Act seeks to prevent excessive charges by establishment for customers who bring and park their cars.

The bill proposes a number of restrictions as to how much the charges should be imposed on customers:

1) Free parking for the first 3 hours for customers who spend at P1,000 or more per visit.


2) Free for all customers who park for less than 30 minutes only.

3) Only Php40 for the first 8 hours and Php10 per succeeding hour.

4) Parking operators have accountability or liability in cases where parked cars are stolen, gets into an accident or have their properties stolen inside the car.

This should be good news to a lot of customers and motorists who pay exorbitant fees. One such case is the BGC area in The Fort where additional hours are charges Php50 per hour after the first 4 hours. Earlier last year The Fort Strip started to charge Php100 per hour after 5 hours.

    Mas okay yata ang flat rate parking fee being implemented by some malls. Some office workers park their cars in these malls especially yung mga malalapit sa mrt station like sm megamall, starmall crossing, edsa shang and just take mrt in going to work.

      Yan din ang iniiwasan ng mga mall e. Marami nakapark dun pero without the intention to spend money by buying goods or availing services inside the mall. Mawawalan naman ng parking yung mga shoppers talaga nila.

      I suggest irequire din nila ang mga office buildings to have ample parking for their employees. Kawawa naman kase ang mga empleyado kapag magbabayad pa ng parking araw araw. Kaya yung iba talaga sa mall ang punta kase mas mababa ang rate at sa iba,fixed pa.

      Ok din ako dun sa law na kelangan irequire ang mga owners ng sasakyan to show proof na meron silang garahe and that they will not use public roads as parking spaces. Dami kase nakahambalang sa daan ngayon – space na pwede pa sanang gamitin ng moving vehicles. Mababawasan din siguro ang carnapping since lahat may sariling garahe.

    Not necessarily. Nagpa-park kami every day sa Trinoma kasi fixed rate pag weekdays. Nage-MRT na lang kami para iwas traffic and gas consumption. Sa tingin ko, inaral na ng mall yun kaya they can offer that service. Alam na siguro nilang wala masyadong nagpa-park on weekdays kaya nabibigay nilang fixed yung rate. Imagine the income they’re making just with the parking. Hindi sila magre-rely sa foot traffic para kumita, kasi talo talaga sila lalo na pag hindi pa payday at wala pang pang-shopping ang mga tao.
