While the whole of Bratislava is working on implementing its new parking policy, scheduled to come into force in January 2021, the local government of Petržalka is making its own arrangements. Last week, the local council adopted new measures aimed at restructuring the borough’s parking system so that it favours local residents. To that end, 26,000 parking spaces have been reserved for the use of locals and they will be marked by the municipality over the next couple of years. Following the approval of the new measures by the council, the mayor of Petržalka Ján Hrčka stated that the real work is only beginning.

Locals will be able to park at the designated spaces at any hour, for any amount of time, free of charge. Meanwhile, non-residents will have to pay hourly fees if their car stays in a reserved spot overnight. The fee is 1 euro per hour for the time between 6PM and 8AM – totalling 14 euros per night. Fees can be paid via a mobile app, text or parking ticket.

Regardless if you’re a resident or not, anyone parking in Petržalka will have to fill out an online form and get their car registered. This new project will be enforced until the complete implementation of the Bratislava-wide parking policy in 2021.
