Kyiv City State Administration has initiated a discussion of tariffs for parking in the city center, the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration informs.
It is noted that the current tariffs are being revised for the first time in 12 years.
“They have not changed since 2009, although since then prices have changed for everything, including equipment, energy resources and wages,” said the deputy chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration Konstantin Usov.
It is proposed to set a tariff for parking in the central part of the city no more than 35 UAH / hour, in areas adjacent to the center – no more than 25 UAH / hour, and in residential areas leave the cost of parking unchanged – at the rate of 5 UAH / hour.
“The fundamental decision is to provide the people of Kiev with free parking at night, on weekends and holidays,” added Konstantin Usov.
The purpose of this decision in the mayor’s office called the establishment of economically justified tariffs and unloading of streets for the convenience of all road users.
“By regulating supply and demand, we will get more free seats, reduce traffic jams, as well as harmful emissions from cars and make the city center clean, beautiful and comfortable,” said the deputy head of the Kyiv City State Administration.
It is also proposed to change the cost of one-day and monthly parking passes. According to the draft order, their cost will be determined depending on the tariff in a particular part of the city and the period of time for which the service is provided, while significant discounts will apply: for a day pass – 28% of the total cost; for a monthly subscription in the center – 50%. Discounts for monthly subscriptions will be 60% and 40%, respectively, in the territories adjacent to the center and sleeping areas.
Usov also noted that the city has developed a system of electronic payment services for parking, which will clear the streets of Kiev from illegal parking attendants.
Now drivers pay for parking in the center of the capital 10 UAH per hour, in the surrounding areas – 7 UAH.
