Städte verdienen mit Parkplätzen Millionensumme

In the future, employees working night shifts and rotating shifts will be able to park their car for free more easily with a special permit.

Exceptions to the parking ticket requirement are to be recognized for working hours up to and including 6:00 am. In addition, employees will in future be able to have frequent unplanned changes in working hours during the night certified by their department. This is provided for in a guideline that the Senate has drawn up with the Mitte district.

Initial guideline valid for one year

Among others, employees of hospitals, police, fire departments and public order offices in particular will benefit from these new recommendations. The guideline is now to be coordinated with the other districts and will initially apply for one year, after which it will be adapted as needed.
