These districts have yet to introduce the paid parking zones system. Instead it is possible to park wherever there is a designated parking area. Look for a blue sign with a large white "P". Attached to the sign will be the hours when parking is possible, if there are any restrictions. There are also private secure parking sites which so incur a cost. These are private concerns and have their own prices and times.

Park and Ride

A good option for people who commute from out of Prague is “Park and Ride” (P&R). P&R places are located at the metro stops Skalka, Zlíčin, Nové Butovice, Palmovka, Rajská zahrada, Černý most, Nádraží Holešovice and Opatov.

There are three basic possibilities with P&R:

  • 10 CZK which does not include travel on the metro. This suitable for those with a monthly, quarterly or annual travel pass or those who work near the P&R places and do not need to use the metro or any other form of public transport.
  • 50 CZK return-ticket (parkovaci listek se zpatecni jizdenkou) which allows for one 75 minute (90 minute in off peak time) journey from the station and another 75 minute (90 minute in off peak time) journey back. It is recommended that you have both tickets when you leave.
  • 90 CZK all day ticket (parkovaci listek se jednodenní jizdenkou). As the name suggests, this allows you to park and the use the Prague integrated transport system for the day of issue.

Your car should be collected by 1am, though it is recommended to get there by 12:30am because some places shut early. If your car is left in the P&R parking place overnight you will incur an additional 100 CZK charge.
