The streets, squares and car parks in the city centre are a paid parking zone (valid on working days from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.). The amount of the fee depends on the parking time and the parking zone. There are two subzones: Zone A in the inner centre, with more expensive parking fees, and the Zone B in the outer centre, with cheaper parking fees. The current fares are available here . You must buy a parking ticket in a parking meter and then place it behind the windshield of the car so that it is visible. You can pay with coins (parking meters don’t give the change), with a credit card or with a mobile phone via services provided by the largest mobile operators such as mPay, SkyCash (mobiParking) and CityParkApp, if you created an account there and activated the service. There are also other paid parking lots in the city centre, both guarded and non-guarded. Large parking lots are also located at all shopping and service centres. Some of them are free, including parking lots in Manufaktura, Pasaż Łódzki, Port Łódź, and some of them (Galeria Łódzka, Sukcesja) offer free parking for the first three hours. Underground parking at Łódź Fabryczna station is paid, similar to the airport parking.
Touring coaches can stop in the city centre in a number of designated places such as by the Manufaktura shopping centre (5, Karskiego Street), on the Wolności Square, in the Sienkiewicza Street (in front of the Sienkiewicza Park), in the Wolborska / Podrzeczna Streets, in 71, Przędzalniana Street or 31/33, Wólczańska Street.
