Since August, Prague will increase the price of parking spaces for other P + R car parks, somewhere five times
Prague has seven more parking lots, which are not guarded. They will now be free for 12 hours. So far, drivers in all car parks except one have paid 20 crowns a day. From August, the city will also raise the price of individual public transport tickets and SMS tickets.
The P + R car park is used for people commuting to Prague to leave their cars and continue public transport, which is to facilitate traffic in the center. “Every year, we invest approximately 40 million crowns in the management of new parking lots, we expand their network, we ensure the quality of facilities and surroundings, and we also focus on the implementation of new technologies. We believe that commuter drivers have noticed the expanded offers and will have an understanding for the change in prices, “said Barbora Lišková, spokeswoman for the city’s technical road administration (TSK).
The largest increase from August will concern the car parks in Holešovice, Ládví, one of the car parks in Skalka and the parking lot at the Congress Center, where as the only car park people still pay more, namely 90 crowns per day. According to TSK, these car parks have the best access to the center.

The second zone for 50 crowns will cover car parks further from the center, for example in Zličín, Černý Most, in Jižní Město, in Letňany or in Radotín. The free parking zone will apply to those car parks that are without staff, for example in Běchovice, Kotlářka or Troja outside the regime for zoo visitors.
So far, drivers have paid 20 crowns for all-day parking at all congress centers in all car parks. Drivers must leave at night, otherwise additional fees apply. The price rose in 2011 from ten crowns. According to TSK, the capacity has increased by 1,500 parking spaces since then and more will be added. Start next year, for example, the currently built parking house in Černý Most should open for about half a billion crowns, with 880 parking spaces available. According to TSK, other car parks will appear in the coming years, for example, in Hostivař, Čakovice or Podbaba.
