    • 3 vehicles
    • 3 vehicles

    • 3 vehicles
    • 3 vehicles (night-time only)
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
  • North Street – Two ranks
    • 3 vehicles
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
  • Princess Street – One rank
    • 4 vehicles (night-time only)
  • Queen Square – One rank
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
  • Skinner Street – Two ranks
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
  • Victoria Street – One rank
    • 11 vehicles
  • Wulfruna Street – One rank
    • 2 vehicles (night-time only)
