Parking in Katowice zones

Changes to rates and areas of Paid Parking Zones in Katowice

– On average, 123,000 vehicles with registrations from neighboring cities enter Katowice daily. The number of parking spaces in the city centre is limited and people from other cities mainly park here. It is important to me that the residents of Katowice, when running errands in the city center, have a place to park their vehicle and do not have to search for a place for several minutes. On the other hand, people who live in the city center also want to be able to park their cars in front of their houses. That’s why a few years ago I made a decision to remodel the parking policy in the city. Its main goal is to encourage thousands of people who come to Katowice every day to work from other cities to use public transport and transfer centers, as it has been done for years in many Western European countries, says Marcin Krupa, the Mayor of Katowice.
