P&R Sloterdijk (Amsterdam West)
P+R Sloterdijk is quite common. If it's jam-packed, you can go to Bos en Lommer. You may hop on a train to Central Station (5 minutes away). Tram 12,
bus 48 and metro 50 go to the city, but be cautious, because the ultimate destination is not Central Station, so it's easy to get caught up. Don't hop onto
metro 51; it's going to take quite long.
Directions: From A10, take exit S102 (Basisweg).
The Amsterdam Municipality will no longer permit-free parking on Sundays in Amsterdam Oud-West and Westerpark. You would have to pay €3 or €4 an hour from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. from 8 April 2018. This ruling is on the basis that the residents in the area have difficulty finding a parking area on Sundays. Luckily, there are no modifications for people with a parking ticket. Visitors can park in the area with a visitor's permit for a limit of 10 hours a month at 50% of the usual cost.
Paid parking is in effect in most parts of Amsterdam, although the rate varies. For example, you'll spend more in the city center than in the outer suburbs, although in certain specied retail streets, parking ticket costs just 10 cents.
Amsterdam parking rates and hours
You can find the parking prices and hours of Amsterdam parking on the parking charges page of the municipality website. You can look online for different prices by just inputting an address to see what the prices are for that location and whether they change on various days or also at certain hours of the day.
You must note that there is a Blue Zone in places where paid parking is not (as yet) in effect. Within these zones, you are only allowed to park for a short
period by clearly displaying a blue parking disk. You may purchase them from big stores and filling stations. Before you exit your car, mark your arrival time on the blue parking disc. You will identify the blue zone, as shown by the surrounding road sign. You will see the overall permitted parking period on this
