Free HDB Parking
Under the HDB FPS, you can enjoy free parking from 7am to 10:30pm on Sundays and public holidays at most HDB car parks. Note that this does not apply to parking lots reserved for season parking holders.
You should look out for the orange sign plate installed on the Supplementary sign plates like this:
If there is no orange sign plate, this means that free parking is not available. You can also use HDB’s Centralised Map to locate the nearest FPS car park.
FYI: These lots are marked by red or bicoloured (red-and-white) lines.
