Electric cars

On January 1st, the new parking regulations went into law. These stated that electrical cars can no longer park for free on public parking places. In Stavanger it was decided that electrical cars should only have to pay half the price, instead of the full price the new law had suggested.

Please note that parking garages with barriers continue to charge full price for electrical cars. *

Our machines are now upgraded to handle payment for electrical cars. You can see a button with “el-bil” on these. Some machines have been upgraded with a colored touch screen. Press “Start” on these to get the “el-bil” selection.

*Half price for electrical cars now also works in parking garages with a barrier when using automatic license plate recognition in the EasyPark app. It’s important to activate this function at least 15 minutes before parking the first time. It is important that people with yearly or monthly cards do not activate this service.

Residents’ parking permits
Owners of electric cars who are registered in the National Population Register within a residence zone, must purchase a residents’ parking permit for the vehicle. The permit will be granted pursuant to the applicable regulations. Formerly, residents’ permits were issued free to owners of electric cars. However, according to the current regulations, only motorbikes and mopeds (two-wheelers) are exempt from the residents’ parking scheme.

Please note that electric cars cannot park for free in privately-owned spaces.

Public signs are blue with the letter P in white. Private spaces have a white P on a black or dark green background.
