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.
