Moscow authorities are considering the possibility of increasing the cost of paid Parking in the capital. About it RBC said the Department of transport. “Yes, this truly worked out”, — noted the head a press-services of the Department, Alena Yeremina.
The increase in Parking fees does not preclude the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin. “Lack of Parking is not solved by increasing the number of Parking spaces, and their higher prices. There is no other way,” he told reporters during a briefing before the speech of the mayor in the Moscow city Duma on Wednesday, September 26.
According to Sobyanin, the regulation of the cost of Parking is as follows: set the price, and then monitoring the occupancy. If the study shows that Parking is filled on 80%, this Parking area should raise the price, he said. If the Parking occupancy is less than 60%, then increase the cost is not necessary, said the mayor. “We can increase [the cost of Parking] is easy. It is unknown which areas in 2017, we will change Parking — no monitoring results. But lowering prices will not be exact,” said RBC said.
That in the centre of the city, even after the introduction of fees for Parking a problem with the free Parking did not dare, on Wednesday, the radio station “Moscow speaking” said the Vice-mayor, head of Department of transport of Moscow Maxim Liksutov. “Even for money but the place should be free always. The approximate number of seats available should be about 15%. This international experience, practice and calculations,” he said.
Liksutov also noted that the decision to raise the price of Parking now worked out, without specifying when it can be taken. In order to make such decisions, “requires a specific set of research and analysis,” he said. “We are still in business. It takes time. We’re working on it”, — explained Vice-the mayor.
The first paid Parking appeared in the capital in November 2012 at 21 street, within the Boulevard ring. In December of the same year, the officials said that this measure was effective, and in may 2013 the paid Parking zone was expanded to the limits of the Boulevard ring, and in winter to the Garden. In 2015, paid Parking went beyond the Third transport ring, including steel paid Parking on many streets around the metro stations. As reported in January 2016, “Vedomosti”, citing data from the Department of transport, for working time of paid Parking in the capital to the city budget were transferred to 5.8 billion rubles., while the entire project paid Parking spent 16 billion rubles.
Progressive rate paid Parking is near the business center “Moscow-city” and the streets within the Boulevard ring. According to the tariff first hour Parking costs 80 rubles., and each subsequent — for 130 RUB This mode operates from 8:00 to 20:00 GMT and from 20:00 to 8:00 GMT every hour costs about 80 rubles.
At the end of may this year, Liksutov didn’t excludethat can be expanded area progressive rate paid Parking. The authorities will go for it, if you will understand that this measure will help to reduce congestion of Parking lots, he said in an interview m24.ru.
“We collect statistics download, let’s analyze the number of Parking sessions and workload. The introduction of a progressive tariff, in our experience, really allows you to unload a Parking space. Around the end of summer we will have recruited sufficient data for analysis,” — said Liksutov.
WITZ-the mayor noted that the city authorities have also appealed for help to the Moscow automobile and road Institute, to to September to form a position on how to lower very high load on the number of Parking spaces in the city center. “The spread of the progressive rate is one of the possible solutions to this issue, but the base rate of the first hour will not change in any case”, — he explained.
