Care Park has been named the Parking Organisation of the Year for 2020
Care Park has been recognised for its excellence of operations and delivery of services at the 2020 Parking Australia Awards, winning the premier award of Parking Organisation of Year.
The awards were held on Tuesday 24 November via video link before a gathered audience of industry leaders, parking operators and suppliers to the parking industry.
Care Park Managing Director Robert Belteky said, “An achievement of this significance shows the calibre and strength of the people of our organisation.
“In Care Park’s 23 years we have grown to become a recognisable and trusted name in the parking industry.
“The expertise of our people, implementing cutting-edge innovation and leading in the delivery of technology have seen us be recognised again as the Parking Organisation of the Year,” Mr Belteky said.
Care Park previously won Parking Organisation of the Year in 2017.
“After a year like no other, this award recognises Care Park’s determination to overcome adversity to continue to deliver the best in parking services to Australians and exporting this expertise worldwide,” Mr Belteky said.
Care Park’s feature projects in the awards were:
The implementation of a ticketless parking system at National Capital Authority in Canberra, across 50 car parks comprising 9000 car bays and the transformation of the Flinders Medical Centre major hospital parking facility in Adelaide into a state-of-the-art car park.
Both of these projects were delivered during the height of COVID focusing on keeping the user experience positive and the delivery of the projects on budget and on time.
“2020 has been a challenging year at Care Park and for many companies and individuals in the parking industry. This award is even more significant than ever for Care Park, that despite the challenges our organisation has faced, we outshone our industry peers to be named the Parking Organisation of the Year.
Parking Australia president Sharon Prior said the prestigious Parking Industry Awards are an opportunity for the industry to recognise excellence, by showcasing exemplary projects from the last 12-18 months.
“Twenty-six submissions were received from around the country and a panel of nine industry judges reviewed and scored the submissions, based on the submission criteria.
“The number of submissions received, during such a challenging period, is a reflection of the innovation and resilience our sector shows,”, Sharon Prior said.

Care Park’s Champion Community
Care Park’s Triple C approach – company, customers and community champions the human face of parking to create a safer environment for parkers and rough sleepers.
Care Park has formed partnerships with Launch Housing, St Vinnies and our corporate clients to provide rough sleepers using our car parks a safer housing environment.
Care Park sales and marketing manager, Jenna White, held discussions with Launch Housing, one of Victoria’s largest providers of housing and homelessness support services to form a partnership between Care Park and Launch Housing which has reduced the number of rough sleepers at Care Park car parks by 40% and giving them safer accommodation and housing instead of simply reporting them to police and councils to move them on.
Care Park understands that homelessness as a growing problem in major metropolitan cities. Care Park was Jenna White’s major sponsor in the 2018 CEO Sleep out raising significant funds for the homeless organisations that house and accommodate rough sleepers.
