In an effort to get more people driving, the city of Moscow is reducing the amount of time it takes to issue parking permits for large families. The validity will be extended until September 2020.
According to the press service of the mayor and the government of the capital, permits for Muscovites will be valid not for three years but until the youngest child reaches 16 or 18 years (for schoolchildren).
You will be able to issue or renew a parking permit when you use the portal of the Mayor of Moscow. Head over to section “Services”, subsection “Transport” from your account so you can begin issuing and renewing permits immediately!
The permit renewal process will be simplified by ensuring that a new document is automatically issued with the click of a button in the notification and two months before the expiration of the permit.
On December 24, parking prices will change around Moscow, affecting about 8.6% of the city. This change, however, won’t affect any existing tariffs – the old tariff “fork” will remain the same – from 40 to 450 rubles per hour. The minimum price for parking in some areas will be dramatically reduced.
The plan is to maintain the current level of parking prices in the city center. The sky-high cost of parking in Russia’s busiest areas is only temporary and the limit will be set in 2023, according to Moscow Deputy Mayor for Transport Maxim Liksutov.
