Parking in Prague Could Be More Expensive For Tourists and Large vehicles

Prague Morning

In the near future, Prague City could be able to raise the price of parking fees for tourists and larger vehicles.

According to the new regulation, there should always be at least 15 percent of parking slots available around the city.

Higher parking fees for tourists should also encourage them to use public transport. Owners of large vehicles should also pay more for parking.

“We expect questions about possible changes in the price of residential parking,” said Adam Scheinherr, Prague’s Deputy Mayor for Transportation. “We need to deal with all the city districts because the system must be uniform for everyone,” he added.

“Inside the city we have a good share of people using public transport (46%), walking to work (30%), using cars (25%), cycling (1-2%), but outside of Prague, this share is reversed, with 46% people driving to Prague by cars,” A.Scheinherr added.

“We will also examine the possibility of discounts for Prague residents who need to park their car outside their city district,” added Pavel Richter (Spojené síly pro Prahu), Chairman of the Transport Committee of Prague.

Prague is also evaluating an expansion of the paid parking zones, most of them in Prague 4, Prague 6 (with new 4,826 places), and Prague 5 where there will be 2,513 new paid parking places in the areas of Jinonická, Šmukýřka, Farkány, Musílkova and Černý Vrch.
