Prague will increase the price of P + R parking
As part of a general increase in public transport fares from August 2021, the Park and Ride system in Prague will stop the general fee of CZK 20 for day parking and replace it with a fee based on the location you are using.
In guarded parking lots on the outskirts of Prague the price will drop to 50 CZK, closer to the center – up to 100 CZK. Unattended parking will now be free, but only for 12 hours.
The biggest price increase from August will be for the Holešovice and Ládví car parks, one of the Skalka car parks and the Congress Center parking lot.
So far, drivers pay 20 CZK to park all day except parking at the convention center. Recently, these car parks will be divided into three zones depending on the availability of public transport and their location in relation to the center.
Free zone 0 means unsecured parking and the maximum duration of free parking will be 12 hours. Zone 1, paying 50 CZK per day, will include large guarded parking lots with a capacity of more than 600 cars.
Zone 2 with a rate of 100 CZK includes guarded car parks closer to the center and with direct connections to public transport.
“Every year, we invest around 40 million CZK in the management of new car parks, we expand their network and we also pay special attention to the introduction of new technologies. We believe that people have noticed the extended offers and will understand the price change, ”said Barbora Lishkova, spokesperson for the Technical Directorate of Motorways.
“As in the case of changes in public transport fares, in this case the funds will mainly be used to maintain the quality and availability of parking lots and their connection with public transport,” she adds.
Since the last price increase in 2011, the capacity of parking spaces has increased by more than 1,500 units. In the coming years, new car parks will appear, for example, in Hostivar, Čakovice and Podbaba.
However, the largest parking lot with a capacity of 800 cars will be built in erný Most.
The city of Prague emphasizes travel by public transport, which reliably transports Prague residents and visitors to the destination they need.
