Hike in parking charges in the City of Brussels

Hike in parking charges in the City of Brussels

Parking
your car in the centre of Brussels is set to become more expensive on 1 May.
The city authorities hope to deter people from parking their cars for long
periods and encourage drivers to use public carparks. The price of a second
resident’s card is going up too.

All green
zones within the inner-city orbital, Kleine Ring, in the European District from
Kunst-Wet to Schuman, and in the area around Louiza are turning grey, meaning
it will be dearer.  Parking times in grey
zones are limited to 4.5 hours. 
Motorists pay 2 euros for the first hour and 3 euros for subsequent
hours.  Drivers will be charged till 9PM
instead of 6PM.

“We want to
encourage the use of public carparks to free up places for people who really
need them” says mobility alderman Bart Dhondt (Flemish green). “Spaces for
people, who are elderly or less mobile.  The
new arrangement will also free up spaces for the many suppliers who deliver in
the inner city”.

The price
of a first resident’s card stays at 10 euros. 
A second resident’s card will cost 110 euros instead of 50.  A third resident’s card can no longer be
requested.  Visitor’s cards can be
applied for.
