Parking in Donostia

After measuring the costs of diesel when moving inside the city, now its the time to talk about the cost of parking your car in a parking lot or in an OTA zone.
There are 4 zones, the special zone, red, blue and green.

  • The special one is the most expensive, because it’s located in the middle of the city( light brown color)
  • The red zone is a bit cheaper than the special zone
  • The green zone is the cheapest, placed in the universities and Zurriola
this is the map of the zones

Lets compare the costs between the 4 zones:
1 hour
Special 1.94€
Red 1.48€
Blue 1.12€
Green 0.87€

If you want to park your car safely in a underground parking, we can difference 3 different prices depending on the zone of the underground:

Now lets calculate the price of 1 hour like before:
1 hour
1st group 2.29€
2nd group 1.94€
3rd group 1.75€

To continue the example from the Diesel costs, lets add the cost of parking to that example:
From 14 to 24€ per month (diesel)
Parking in a OTA zone (green zone) for 6 hours: 3.49€ a day, 69.8€ for 20 days, for example, if you have to park there to work.
Now things don’t look that cheap with an estimated total of 87€ per 20 days.
Next time we’ll talk about the cost of maintenance and taxes, and then compare them to the cost of using the bus and bike.
