There is a parking lot in Gileadby michael • August 31 2007
Municipal news, City planning
Jerusalem is not a driver-friendly city. Much of the city's infrastructure dates back to the days of horses and buggies (or just plain camels), and parking spots downtown are rare as summer rain. Drivers wanting to spend a day in the city either have to park a distance away and walk or pay often stiff parking garage and meter fees. But party people should be excited to hear that the municipality, in yet another surprising display of good government, has instituted an extensive program aimed at solving the driving and parking problems in downtown Jerusalem's hopping nightlife districts.
Most conveniently, the municipality is making parking available in city parking lots at a greatly reduced price. The three lots affected are:
Independence Park Lot: 10 shekels between the hours of 4 PM and 7 AM.
Kikkar Safra Lot: 12 shekels between the hours of 7 PM and 6 AM.
Russian Compound Lot: 10 shekels between the hours of 4 PM and 6 AM.
Parking will also be available along the right side of Shlomtzion Ha-Malkah Street from 8 PM to 5 AM.
The municipality is also opening several major city streets to public traffic during the nighttime entertainment hours. Starting on September 2nd, from 9 PM to 5 AM, Yafo, Agrippas, King George and Strauss streets will be opened to traffic.
