Paid parking in Moscow

Experimental on-street paid parking has been established on some of Moscow’s central streets. Residents of Moscow’s central district are unhappy with the move, but financial restrictions on drivers are inevitable in such a densely populated city with notoriously low road culture.

In November, an experimental on-street paid parking project kicked off, covering 20 streets in Moscow’s center – for one, the legendary Petrovka Street, home to Moscow’s police headquarters. The parking rate is currently set at 50 rubles ($1.6) an hour.
