The Budapest municipal general assembly decided on Wednesday to replace the current complicated parking system involving 27 zones with a clear and uniform system involving 4 zones.
The new parking regulations were approved with 22 votes in favour and 7 votes against at the general assembly meeting.
The hourly rate for parking in zone A will be 600 forints (EUR 1.50) and it will apply between 8am and 10pm. Parking in zone B will cost 450 forints per hour, to be paid between 8am and 8pm, in zone C the hourly rate will be 300 forints and in zone D 200 forints, payable between 8am and 6pm. The maximum allowed parking time in zones A, B and C will be 3 hours.

The new system will enter force on September 5 and the total size of parking zones in the city will increase by around 10 percent on the same date.
A proposal by ruling Fidesz-KDNP to change the starting time for parking fees from 8am to 8.30am failed to receive majority support at the meeting.
