How to find a good parking spot in Perth
Perth has become the most popular city for car drivers in the world, according to new research by the Centre for Strategic Economics.
It also ranked as one of the most cost-effective cities to live in.
Perth was also one of three places with the most people living in car-free neighbourhoods, according the report.
This was based on the number of parking spaces per capita, according a report released by the centre’s Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Perth has the highest average daily parking spaces in the country at 6,845.
In contrast, Adelaide’s average daily average was 3,664.
Adelaide also ranked first in the region for car-friendly parking.
This is due to the high number of commercial car parking spaces, the report said.
There were 856,500 commercial car spaces in Perth last year, with a total of 8,812,700 parking spaces.
There are 4,711,500 parking spaces on private land.
The most popular locations for car parking in Perth were on the south and west sides of the city, with Sydney and Melbourne being the only major cities with more than 1,000 parking spaces for each person.
The city’s parking rates are higher than in most other Australian cities, with average rates for cars of $12.25 a day.
Adelaide has the lowest average car-parking rates, with just $8.50.
Adelaide was the second most expensive city to live, with $5.70 a day for parking.
The average cost of a car in Perth was $15,869, the centre said.
Perth’s average household income is $82,788, well below the national average of $92,868.
The centre’s research shows Perth has a higher percentage of people who have never lived in a car compared with other Australian capitals.
The majority of people surveyed in Perth did not own a car, compared with a median of 58 per cent in Melbourne, 56 per cent on Sydney, 58 per, on Sydney and 57 per cent of the residents of Melbourne.
The study also found that Perth has one of Australia’s lowest levels of car ownership, with 10 per cent owning a car at least once a week.
It found that more than half of people in Perth said they had not used their car for more than 10 minutes.
Perth residents are most likely to live at home and commute to work, but are less likely to do so than other Australian capital cities.
It is a major reason why the state has the worst rate of car-related deaths, the study found.
The research showed Perth had the lowest proportion of people aged 65 and over living at home.
The Centre for Economic Performance, an independent think-tank, said it was important to note the large differences between the different countries in terms of rates of car use.
It said Perth was still a relatively affordable place to live for those with the least income and to have a car for commuting to work.
