MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s residents have made a recommendation to introduce annual parking permits for residents of the Central Administrative District at a price of 3,000 rubles a year at their meeting with Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin on Monday.
One U.S. dollar is equivalent to 30.87 Russian rubles.
Sobyanin met an initiative group in Petrovka Street in downtown Moscow. Public activists said the current situation with paid-for car parking in the area of Petrovka and Karetny Ryad streets does not meet their interests in full.
At present the parking for residents is free only from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
“An annual parking permit is an interesting proposal but in any case we must grant some benefits to disabled people and veterans,” Sobyanin said.
