foto 2021 parquing regulatChief of the Formentera Department of Mobility, Rafael González, reports that from tomorrow, Saturday 1 May, summer hours will be enforced in pay-to-park areas of La Savina, Sant Francesc, Sant Ferran and Es Pujols. Rules are in force from Monday to Sunday 9.00am to 9.00pm.

Motorists who are eligible for the blue zone exemption can use their associated free pass while parked in any blue space on the island. Drivers ineligible for the blue zone exemption pay €1.20 an hour.

In summer and provided a pass is displayed, a vehicle can occupy the same blue zone spot up to 24 hours; in winter, the limit is extended to 72 hours. As for green zone spots, they are restricted to authorised vehicles (time limit: 24 hours) and La Savina residents (15 days).

New app
Councillor González pointed out that Flowbird Parking went online in late March, and encouraged drivers unfamiliar with the free app to download it from the App Store or Google Play and try it out. Users are asked at set-up to provide details about their vehicle. Once this data is stored, drivers can simply walk to a parking metre, enter their plate number and, instead of printing out a parking pass, they receive it directly on their smart-phone. Users can also set an alert so they know when their time is about to expire.

Tourist vouchers
González also pointed to vouchers for tourists who overnight near blue zone parking. Available at tourist accommodations in urban areas of the island, vouchers entitle their holders to 25% off standard blue zone rates.

15-minute spots
15-minute parking remains in effect. Located in Sant Francesc and Sant Ferran, these spaces are designed to promote vehicle circulation in areas of heavy business activity and parking shortage.
