Source: eBikeGeneration – From 1 January 2022, parking is not free of charge anymore for motorcycles and mopeds. However, electric models remain exempted and park for free.

In future Paris, parking a motorcycle and moped is not free of charge anymore. Parking will costs half of the price for parking a car. The hourly rate is 3 euro for districts 1-11 en 2 euro for the remaining districts. It is possible for people who work in Paris to buy a subscription from town hall for a reduced hourly parking rate (Pass deux-roues motorisé (2 RM)).

 Visitor without PassVisitor with Pass
Arrondissements of central Paris (from the 1st to the 11th)3 € / h1.2 € / h
External district (from the 12th to the 20th)2 € / h0.8 € / h

Not observing the rules becomes more expensive. Fines for unlawful parking go up from 50 to 75 euroin the city center and from 35 to 50 euro in suburban areas.

Health workers who are visiting patients at home are exempted from the parking fee, no matter which type of motorcycle/moped they are riding. Other professionals will enjoy special hourly rate, which still needs to be set.

The City of Paris argues that the new parking rules could result in higher sales of electric mopeds and motorcycles.
