No Fee Required for Parking on 8M Roads in Residential Areas on Saturday

In line with the new measure taking effect on January 1, 2016 granting workers two days off per week, Parking Management and Development Office (PMDO) announced that parking on roads less than 8 meters in width (including 8 meters) in the city’s residential areas will not be charged on Saturday.
However, the rule does not apply to parking spaces for commercial purposes or high-demand parking areas.
PMDO pointed out that 6-meter and 8-meter roads in lanes and alleys are mostly used by residents. Users are charged at the lowest rates during the period between 9 AM and 5 PM.
According to a survey conducted by PMDO one month following the implementation of the measure to charge all car parking spaces starting December 1, 2015, the parking turnover rate has increased by 2.5 times and the occupancy issue has been effectively addressed.
In light of this, the city government has decided that parking on Taipei’s 612 lanes and alleys in residential areas will not be charged on Saturday considering the fact that people usually do not work on the weekend in accordance with the amended Labor Standards Act.
To meet people’s needs, PMDO will continue to review parking rates across the city based on actual usage. Lanes and alleys which have not been marked with parking spaces will be examined as part of the “Neighborhood Traffic Improvement Plan.”
