Car Parks and Parking Zones

Quimper is particularly well equipped with 5350 parking spaces, including 2600 in free parking zones.

The city centre of Quimper has 14 car parks and three parking zones: a paying zone (short and medium length), a limited-time restricted parking zone (European disc) and a free zone.

Parking plan

A new parking plan has just been published. Simple, clear, and also very practical: according to the length of time needed, it indicates where to park at the best price.

Parking: what has changed since 1st January, 2018

The national reform of paid on-street parking, imposed by the State, entered into force on 1st January, 2018. In the event of absence or insufficiency of payment, it is translated in particular by the disappearance of police "fines", replaced by a "post-parking fee" that is set by the community.

To accompany this change that it did not want, the city of Quimper is implementing several measures to facilitate parking and enhance the attractiveness of the city centre.

New ticket machines, new habits

Everything is simplified and dematerialized: no more tickets to leave under your windscreen. From now on, you identify yourself by entering your license plate number on the parking meter.

This then allows traffic wardens to check the validity of your payment on their device.

If the parking time is exceeded or in case of non-payment, you will have to pay a post-parking fee (FPS) of:

  • €17 maximum if you pay within 72hrs,
  • €35 if you pay after 72hrs.

Enjoy a free quarter of an hour twice a day

To do your shopping or drop your kids off at school, at the moment you have a free quarter of an hour a day. From 1st January, this offer doubles: you will be entitled to a free quarter of an hour in the morning and a free quarter of an hour in the afternoon.

To use it, it's simple; just enter your registration number in the ticket machine.

Four drop-off points (30 minutes free), indicated by a luminous bollard, can be found on Rue Gradlon and Place Alexandre Massé.

Pay remotely from any city parking meter or with the Whoosh app

If you are parked on the other side of the city, you do not have to go back to the same meter to pay for your overrun parking! Thanks to your license plate number, you can extend your parking time from any of the city’s parking meters for up to 2 hours. You can also extend or interrupt your parking time with the Whoosh app.

Do not forget

1. On-street parking in Quimper is always free between 12pm and 2pm and after 5pm.

2. It is always strictly forbidden to park in the pedestrian zone and is subject to a criminal fine (see below).

3. Offenses, other than those related to non-payment, always fall under police regime: obstruction, prohibited parking, use of reserved spaces. They can be the subject of a reported offense and fine of up to 135 €.

4. For long-term parking (more than 2 hours), make use of the 1394 parking spaces in car parks and multi-storeys.

Online parking payment – Paying a reduced FPS (post-parking fee) online

Since 1st January, parking payment is dematerialized: the time of leaving tickets under the windscreen is over. From now on, you identify yourself by entering your license plate number on the parking meter. This then allows traffic wardens to check the validity of your payment on their device.

It is also possible to pay for parking with the Whoosh application and on the website https://www.whooshstore.fr.

If the parking time is exceeded or in case of non-payment, you will have to pay a post-parking fee (FPS) of:

  • €17 maximum if you pay within 72hrs,
  • €35 if you pay after 72hrs.

Services

Free parking after 5pm

  • On-street parking in the paying zone is free after 5pm.
  • The Tour d'Auvergne, Steir and Lattre de Tassigny car parks and the Théodore Le Hars and the Cornouaille Theatre multi-storey car parks are not included in this measure.

Pay remotely from any parking meter or with the Whoosh app

  • If you are parked on the other side of the city, you do not have to go back to the same meter to pay for your overrun parking! Thanks to your license plate number, you can extend your parking time from any of the city’s parking meters for up to 2 hours. You can also extend or interrupt your parking time with the Whoosh app.

Possibility of contactless payment

  • All of the parking meters accept contactless payment by credit card or smartphone.

Very attractive rates compared to the average city in France

  • These rates are differentiated according to the type of parking: on-street parking, in a car park or in a multi-storey. See below.

A quarter of an hour free everywhere twice a day

  • On all on-street paid-parking spaces, the first fifteen minutes of each time period, meaning once from 9am to 12pm and once from 2pm to 5pm, is free to facilitate short-term parking, type "drop-off ".
  • In the multi-storeys, the first quarter of an hour is also free.

Drop-off points

  • Four drop-off points (30 minutes free), indicated by a luminous bollard, can be found on Rue Gradlon and Place Alexandre Massé.

Easy parking for residents

  • In order to facilitate resident parking in the city centre, the subscriptions rates for the car parks and the multi-storeys have been maintained at a level well below that of non-residents (€32 per month or €384 per year).
  • To facilitate long-term parking during the day, a single subscription of 32 euros per month, or about 1 euro per day, has been set up since 1st January, 2018 for the Steir and De Lattre de Tassigny car parks.
