New Parking System in Budapest Confirmed From 5 September
Budapest city council decided on Wednesday to introduce a transparent, clear, standardised parking system consisting of four zones, instead of the current 27, and to raise the parking fees.

The council approved the new system by a vote of 22-7.

Accordingly, four zones will be defined in Budapest. Parking will cost Ft 600 an hour in zone A from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Ft 450 in Zone B between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Ft 300 in Zone C between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Ft 200 in Zone D between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Only three hours of parking will be allowed in zones A, B and C, while the hours are unlimited in zone D.

Current hourly parking fees vary in the range of Ft 175-525.

The area of paying zones will increase by about 10% when the new system enters into force on September 5, the first Monday of that month.
