Budapest overhauls public parking system
The Municipal Council of Budapest voted on Wednesday to introduce a unified public parking system with four zones in the capital from September 5, replacing the existing system of 27 different parking zones, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Parking in Zone A will cost HUF 600 per hour between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Parking in Zone B will cost HUF 450 per hour between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
In Zone C the parking fee will be HUF 300 per hour between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. In Zone D it will be HUF 200 per hour between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Parking fees in Budapest currently range between HUF 175-525 per hour.
Parking times in Zones A, B, and C will be limited to three hours while there will be no time limit in Zone D.
The area where motorists will have to pay parking fees will expand by around 10% with the changes.
