These are the rates for parking at Liverpool Hospital and can't be changed because the carpark is 'contracted out' to a private company. Note that the top rate of $21 starts after only 2&1/2 hours. Westfield in Liverpool provides 2 hours free. Apparently it's more important to have free parking for shopping than for seeing people in Hospital.
It's quite frustrating that the other cities in Australia are getting into these new programs which work toward improving active travel and public transport. This bike hire scheme is in Brisbane. Active travel can improve urban amenity, personal health and support improved public transport services.
