Visitor parking

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 5-12 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

We provide parking spaces with charging for your electric car. You do not need a permit to park and use our service, but you pay for the parking according to the parking rules and fees that apply in the area. The charging power at the charging stations is 3-phase 11 kW at each outlet.

We currently have loading places in the following parking areas:

Vulkanus, 32 parking lots
Kungsbron, 2 parking lots
Nornan, 4 parking lots
Astern, 4 parking lots
Nybrons p-hus, 4 parking lots
Brodalsgaraget, 4 parking lots
Valhall, 2 parking lots
Elektra, 4 parking lots

Dalhemsplatsen, 8 parking lots

In the places where there is a charging post but no sign “Charging site” it is ok to park even for those who do not have electric / electric hybrid vehicles.

In addition, there are 15-minute parking spaces located around the centre of the city for brief visits. It is also possible to park motorcycles in regular parking spaces and pay the fee.

People with disabilities

Parking spaces for people with disabilities are available on several streets and parking areas in the city centre.

Those parking spaces managed by the City of Borås that are marked with a wheelchair symbol are free to use. On private land, the owner of the property is entitled to charge parking fees on marked parking spaces for the disabled, so information signs should be read carefully.

The number of hours your parking permit allows you to park for varies, so make sure you understand what applies for your permit.

Applications for parking permits for people with disabilities can be made via the link below.
