Submitted by eyeonmiri on Thu, 2014-01-02 14:58. :: Eyes on Miri | News & Events | Special interests

Miri Parking is now privatized. Under new management, the car park is now managed by Miri Parking Systems. Sdn. Bhd. Their office is located at :

Miri Parking Systems Sdn. Bhd.
One Stop Center,
Miri City Council
Jalan Raja,
98000 Miri
Sarawak.

Telephone : 085 - 418734
Fax : 085 - 413081

As of now, the new system should not have any effect to those of us using the parking coupon systems and everything should carry over. This is, however, unconfirmed.

Those using the monthly pass for the multi-storey car park should go to the office to get their pass cards.

What are your opinions on the privatization and the handling of the parking systems? Please comment.
