Who with the car to Amsterdam to drive, will feel it in the wallet. From Sunday parking in the city centre a lot more expensive.
In the old town, around the world, pay drivers who leave their cars for an hour at street stalls 7,50 euro. That was previously ‘only’ 5 euros. In the grachtengordel and the Jordaan is the client’s 6 euros per hour lost. Also the rates in the municipal parking garages going up, but parking continues to be cheaper than on the street.
The increase of the parking charges is one of the buttons where the community revolves around the town’s low and people on the bike or in public transport. Another measure is the removal of thousands of parking spaces on the street.
Amsterdam int annual 200 million euros of parking fees. The largest part of which goes through the mobiliteitsfonds to the improvement of the road network, but also to the creation of play areas and green.
