DIVVY users know and love our pre-book public parking solution, which is perfect for those times when you know where you’re headed. For spontaneous trips (or when you’re a bit less organised!), we’ve introduced Drive Up Casual Parking Solution.

What is Drive Up?

Everything drivers love about DIVVY – easy, contactless parking – is now available for casual parking. No need to pre-book your parking with Drive Up – just tap your VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, Apple Pay or Samsung Pay at the car park entry to gain access. When you’re ready to leave, tap out at the car park exit with the same payment method, and you’re on your way. It couldn’t be simpler!

DIVVY’s Drive Up Public Parking Solution

Why do drivers love it?

Have you ever lost your parking station ticket and had to pay for a full day’s parking or a lost ticket fee? It’s an expensive mistake to make. Drive Up doesn’t use parking pull-tickets, so you can say goodbye to lost ticket problems. It also means the resources used to manufacture thousands of pull-tickets are conserved, and there’s no pull-ticket waste ending up in our precious environment either.

Not only is Drive Up ticketless, but it’s cashless too. Cash use here in Australia was in decline even before COVID, but since the advent of the pandemic, it has nose-dived. No one wants to catch the virus from handling cash, and many of us just don’t carry it anymore. All Drive Up payments are electronic, so all you need is your card or your phone. Easy.
