Free Parking in City of Athens to End on April 12

ATHENS — Following the reopening of retail trade, the City of Athens will once again start charging for non-resident parking spaces on the street (P69 visitor vehicle spaces) as of Monday, April 12.

As of next Monday, the relevant fee will have to be paid for those parking in a P69 space between 9:00 and 21:00 on weekdays, or from 9:00 until 16:00 on Saturdays. Payment can be made through scratch cards or electronically bought in advance from a kiosk or other vendor, while the maximum permissible parking time is three hours.

Alternatively, payment can be carried out remotely through an Android of iOS device using the app MyAthensPass, which does not require the display of a card on the vehicle.

Those who fail to pay the required parking fee are liable to pay fines, issued by the municipal police.

More information is available on the City of Athens webpage http://www.cityofathens.gr/kykloforia-stathmeysi/systima-elegxomenis-stathmeysis.
