Frequently asked questions

I have received a parking ticket on my car but consider it to be in error. How do I contest it?

If you have questions regarding a parking enforcement fine (Sw. ‘kontrollavgift’) relating to unlawful parking on any kind of private land, you should contact the issuer of the enforcement fine.

Contest an enforcement fine issued by Borås kommuns Parkerings AB by using our Contest a parking fine form or by e-mailing us at p-bolaget@boras.se.

If you have questions about a parking ticket (Sw. ‘parkeringsanmärkning’) that was issued on public land, contact the police in the municipality in which the parking ticket was issued.

How do I pay a parking enforcement fine (‘kontrollavgift’) that was issued by Borås kommuns Parkerings AB?

You can make a payment to Pg (postal giro service) 81 54 01-5. Remember to input your case ID (‘ärendenummer’) as an OCR number.

If I pay for parking while my car is parked in one parking space, can I move it to another?

The zone code of the parking space you pay for determines where you are allowed to park. In the city centre the area is quite large, and in other places it covers only the car park that you paid to park in. Each zone code is unique, and you are allowed to park anywhere within that area without having to pay again.

How do I pay a parking enforcement fine issued by Borås kommuns Parkerings AB from a foreign bank account?

In order to pay from a foreign account, you need to provide the following information:

Swift/BIC: NDEASESS
IBAN: SE 1195000099604208154015

Remember to input your case ID as an OCR number.

Some parking spaces are equipped with a parking sign that shows charging/power plugs for electric cars. Can regular cars park there as well?

No, parking spaces marked with this sign are only intended for use by electric cars.

What do I do when a parking meter is out of order?

You need to pay the parking fee even when the meter is out of order. You can pay either at the next meter in the same parking area or using your phone. We would be grateful if you would be so kind as to let us know when disruptions occur so that we can quickly solve the problem; to do so, follow the instructions on the meter.
