In filing Senate Bill (SB) 745, or the proposed “Parking Fees Regulation Act of 2019,” Gatchalian explained that the bill encourages shopping malls, hospitals, schools and other establishments to provide parking spaces for their customers free of charge.

Gatchalian said his measure seeks to establish regulations for establishments charging parking fees.

SB 745 shall cover parking facilities for all kinds of motor vehicles.

For establishments that will impose parking fees, the standard parking fee shall be P40 per vehicle for a maximum of 8 hours and an additional P10 per succeeding hour. For overnight parking, a customer shall be charged a one-time fee of P100 per vehicle. For shopping malls, restaurants, stores and similar establishments where customers purchase items or pay fees for services, facilities or amenities offered by the establishment, the parking fee shall be waived once a customer presents a validated proof of purchase or payment of not less than Pl,000, provided that the customer used the parking space for a maximum of three hours only.

Business establishments shall maintain and provide security in parking spaces.
