HOW WE SET OUR PRICES
We want to welcome visitors to Borås! Visitors to Borås travel by car, bus, train, bicycle, and on foot.
Our prices are always based on the fee per hour for all types of parking and products.
Those who park all have different needs:
- When you want to do something in the city, e.g. eat lunch.
- When you work and want to park your car for 8-9 hours.
- When you are in need of a car in your profession.
- When you want to leave your children at the day nursery, school, or hospital.
All of these needs, together with the fact that the city is becoming denser, have provided us with challenges that we have taken on.
We assess both prices and products for all parking areas, and adjustments are continuously being made over the course of each year. The purpose of this work is to ensure the flow of moving traffic, decrease the environmental load, and ensure that there are vacant parking spaces where they are needed.
Today we charge a fee of 6-18 SEK/h between 9.00 and 18.00 on weekdays and 9.00 and 15.00 on Saturdays in car parks on private land, depending on where you park. At all other hours, the fees are lower.
Electric car charging and parking
ELECTRIC CAR PARKING
We provide public charging stations for your electric car with EU standard type 2 contact AC charger. You pay for the parking according to the parking rules and fees that apply in the area, and start and pay for your charge via Easypark’s or Parkster´s app, see information on the charging post.
The charging power at the charging points is 3-phase 11 kW on each socket. CHARGING CHARGE 4 kr / kWh
HOW DO I CHARGE MY ELECTRIC CAR?
Valid at Borås Kommuns Parkerings AB’s charging points via Easypark
Plug the cable into the charging socket in your car and into the charging box. Make sure that the correct zone code is entered in the Easypark app. Enter the right choice for you (charge with season ticket, charge and park or just park). Select the correct socket depending on which side you are on 1 or 2. Spin up the time you want to park. If your charge is completed earlier than your parking time, you will only be charged for the parking and no more for the charge then the car is fully charged.
When you have finished parking and are about to leave the car park, you turn off the car park in the app. Then the charge is also interrupted automatically. Remove the charging cable from your car and then from the charging box.
Valid at Borås Kommuns Parkerings AB’s charging points via Parkster
Plug in the charging cable into your car and then into the charger. Launch the app. The sticker with zone code etc is on the side of the charger. If you have to pay for both parking and charging, select the code under “Områdeskod”, if you have a period ticket and only pay for charging, then select the code under “Områdeskod periodbiljett”. Press “Välj ladduttag”, choose the outlet that is on the sticker. Press at the bottom on “Välj fordon och parkera”. Select your registration number. You will receive a notification that it has started, if your charge is completed earlier than your parking time, you will only be charged for the parking and no more for the charge when the car is fully charged. After finishing parking, press “End parking”.

If you do not get your charge started, update the easypark or Parkster app. This usually works. Sometimes you have to redo your procedure to make it work
