With traffic very close to the levels prior to

March 20, 2020

, when the isolation decreed by the coronavirus pandemic began, from this Monday

free parking in the City ends,

so motorists will have to pay attention to where they leave their vehicle.

According to official figures, circulation is 

93% of what it was before the pandemic

.

But compared to a week before March 2020, last June there were 31% more delays and the lines of vehicles in the accesses and avenues were 80% longer.

That is why 15 days ago it was decided to return to the

usual restrictions.

And an informative period has been given until now, that

fines will

begin to be

charged

and the cranes will be able to return to haul vehicles parked in prohibited places.

One of the factors that increase traffic are

face-to-face classes

.

And just this Monday the

winter vacation

period ends

On the other hand, progress will also be made with the decision to return to full presence, which is to be expected to generate more movement of people.

The area of ​​Courts and the center will continue without movement restrictions, as happened since March 20 of last year.

In addition, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta's administration announced during the week that it passed a 6-stage plan to resume normalcy in the City, so even more people are expected to circulate.

The

free parking

was implemented in March 2020, when the strictest quarantine began.

The measure had already been without effect since March 1 of this year.

Then the fines and the cranes returned, but it was only for a short time.

The

second wave

of coronavirus put a brake and, given the sustained rise in cases, the Buenos Aires government decided to re-implement free parking from

April 10

, in order to once again discourage people from using

public transport. 

The rules 

  • Avenues and streets where parking is prohibited on business days from 7 to 21:

    the prohibition will be restored on business days from 7 to 21.

  • Avenues and streets where 24-hour parking is prohibited: the 24-hour

    parking ban will be reinstated.

  • Metered parking: it

    comes into effect in the areas authorized before the pandemic.

    The current value is $ 30 an hour.

  • Ramps, ochavas, garages, bus stops and exclusive docks:

    the prohibition continues for 24 hours.

  • Restriction in Center and Pedestrian Courts:

    still suspended.

    That is, you can drive without a permit but not park.

  • The cranes never stopped operating in the City.

    But now they can also haul cars that break these rules.

How to know where to park

Through

Boti, the City's robot

, you can check at any time via WhatsApp for exact addresses or street intersections, or share your current location to confirm if parking is allowed or if you have to pay for metered parking.

For this you have to send a message by WhatsApp to 1150500147 asking: Where can I park?

Then you have to select the option by location or by address.

If the first alternative was chosen, the address indicated by Boti will have to be confirmed.

Fines

Bad parking is

the most committed offense in the City

.

The fine varies as follows:

  • Parking or detention prohibited:

    $ 3,900 (100 UF)

    .


  • In places reserved for emergency services, public transport stops, vehicle entrances, bicycle lanes, exclusive lanes, Metrobus corridors, and the Macro and Microcentro area: $ 7,800 (200 UF).


  • In places reserved for vehicles of people with special needs or ramps for people with reduced mobility: $ 11,700 (300 UF).


  • Metered Parking: $ 3,900 (100 UF).

From August 2, the fines and cranes return.

The value of the Fixed Unit, which is used to calculate the cost of the fines, is $ 39 and is equivalent to what half a liter of premium gasoline costs at the price sold by the ACA on Avenida Del Libertador.

If the car is towed, in addition to the fine, you have to pay $ 4,350.
