Parking in Lyon, as in any large city, can sometimes be a challenge. Fortunately, the city offers several options for safe and easy parking.

Public car parks

Lyon has numerous public pay parking lots throughout the city. They are generally open 24 hours a day and offer hourly or daily rates. You can find a list of public parking lots on the city of Lyon website or via the ONLYLYON mobile application.

On-Street Parking Zones

There are also on-street parking zones, which are generally chargeable from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 7pm. Please note that parking is limited to a maximum of 2 hours in some zones.

Low-emission zones

As part of its plan to combat atmospheric pollution, Lyon has set up low-emission zones (ZFE) where the circulation of the most polluting vehicles is restricted. Make sure your vehicle meets the emission criteria for driving in these zones.

Parc Relais

If you plan to use public transport during your stay, Parcs Relais (P+R) are an excellent option. Located close to metro and tramway stations, these parking lots allow you to park your car and continue your journey by public transport. They are generally less expensive than city-center parking lots.

Mobile application

For a hassle-free parking experience, you can also use mobile apps like PayByPhone or OPnGO, which allow you to pay for parking remotely, extend parking time and even reserve a parking space in advance.


In conclusion, while parking in Lyon may require a bit of planning, there are plenty of options to make the experience as easy and convenient as possible.
