29 April 2019 - The upcoming summer in Herceg Novi may not be ready for lack of parking slots, but it will no longer happen that tourists, who struggled to find a parking slot, have to wander around to buy a ticket or pay for a parking, as noted by the representatives of Parking Service of Montenegro.
In the next few days, the Parking Service Company will deliver four parking payment machines for the purchase of parking tickets at places where there is no kiosk. The procurement contract, worth 30,000 EUR, was signed with Telekom, while the Parking Service is financing the devices.
In this way, for the first time in Herceg Novi, the system of purchasing parking tickets will be introduced, which is one of the segments of the so-called Smart parking, which is already in use in Podgorica. Except for parks, "smart parking" also includes telephone applications, installation of sensors under the asphalt, through which data on the number of free parking spaces are sent, and more.
As explained by the Parking Service, the parking machines will be placed at 4 locations: at Tonsati, across the Kanli Towers, between City Cafe and Atlas Bank and in Igalo, at TC Solemar.
They should first make it easier for foreign tourists to buy tickets, as it is in several foreign languages. It is important to note that the parking machines will receive both paper and coins, with the possibility of returning the change. In addition, the parking payment machines will come equipped with solar panels.
Through the parking lot, you can buy tickets for the so-called yellow zone (Dubrava, Tonsati) and red zone (city center and Igalo), or for about 200 parking slots.
For this season, there will be about 1,000 parking spaces in public and general parking lots under the "parking" of the Parking Service, and during the summer, there will be no price increases. This means that the parking slot in the yellow zone will cost 0,50 EUR and in the red 0,80 EUR. Subscription day ticket in the yellow zone costs 5 EUR.
