With the exception of electric models, two-wheelers will have to pay for parking in the capital from next year. What there is to know.
Notice to the many owners and users of motorcycles and thermal scooters in Paris. From 2022, you will have to endure the change to paid parking for your mount if you choose to park it in the streets of the capital.
The formalization of this new measure, obviously bad for the people concerned, does not come as a surprise. Indeed, it is a “Campaign engagement” of the mayor PS Anne Hidalgo, has recalled David Belliard, son adjoint in charge of the transformation of public space, transport, mobility, the street code and highways.
Paying for motorcycles and thermal scooters
The elected Europe Ecology The Greens (EELV) undertook, this Tuesday, to announce through his Twitter account that « thermal scooters and motorcycles will have to pay for parking » in Paris from next year. This measure falls within the framework of the big parking reform in the capital. The parking arrangements are as follows: the vehicles in question can always park in the spaces dedicated to cars and future applicable rates 50% of those set up for cars will be operated. “We are creating a 2WD pass for parking in the basement », adds David Belliard, a pass intended for users who live outside Paris, but who have to go there to work, while a resident rate is intended for Parisians having to park near their home.
Free for electric two-wheelers and home care professionals
Applicable to thermal engines only, the end of free parking for two-wheelers will not apply to electric models. However, it should be remembered that these are still a very small minority on the market. Regarding the change to paid parking for thermal two-wheelers, an exception will be granted to home care professionals. “Health personnel providing home care obviously retain their right to free parking, specifies the elected official. Just like electric or low emission vehicles (auto, motorcycle, scooter). The advantageous parking rates for professionals remain in effect and will henceforth concern artisans and traders in the outer suburbs! Gradually, underground parking for people with reduced mobility will become free. Parking in the street is obviously free for them. “
It was a campaign engagement, scooters and thermal motorcycles will have to pay for parking. With rates for residents, visitors and professionals up to 50% of car rates.
