Bonus: HDB Free Parking

Did you know that HDB offers Free Parking Scheme (FPS) at various HDB car parks on Sundays and public holidays?

Under the HDB FPS, you can enjoy free parking from 7am to 10:30pm on Sundays and public holidays in most HDB car parks.

Take note that this does not apply to parking lots reserved for season parking holders.

FYI: these lots are marked by red or bicoloured (red-and-white) lines.

To identify car parks with FPS, look out for the orange sign plate installed on main signboards like this:

Source: HDB

Or you can use HDB’s Centralised Map to locate the nearest FPS car park.

You’re welcome!
