Temporary parking relief to be extended
The Government decided today to extend the parking relief that has been introduced temporarily because of the coronavirus crisis, until 10 May 2020. The measures are aimed at making commuting easier for people who work in systemically relevant sectors and who depend on their cars, for the duration of the crisis.
Public transport services are currently still limited. As buses, trams and trains are largely supposed to start running according to normal timetables from 11 May 2020, normal parking charges will apply again from then.
The Government made the decision on parking relief on 24 March 2020. See: https://coronavirus.bs.ch/en/newsticker-en/24.03.2020-1400-weitere-sofortmassnahmen-im-zusammenhang-mit-dem-coronavirus.html
