Commercial lots must be free to use between 7pm and 7am
Government declares free overnight parking at commercial garages
The decree, which comes into force on November 23, makes commercial P+Rs, parking garages and parking lots in residential areas free of charge from 7:00 in the evening until 7:00 in the morning, Bertalan Havasi said.
Operators must provide for use of the parking areas free of charge during that period, he added.
A separate government resolution will make parking in public areas owned by budget-funded institutions and the state open to the public, free of charge, between 7:00 in the evening and 7:00 in the morning.
In the resolution, the government asks local councils to do the same for municipality-owned parking areas and inform residents of the measure within 48 hours.
