Reykjavik Parking Service


The Parking Service oversees and regulates the use of parking spaces in Reykjavík. The center of Reykjavík has 7 parking garages, where you can also rent a long-term parking space. The Parking Service also manages the issuance of resident parking permits, which authorize users to park in paid parking spaces within a certain area.

Parking garage subscription application

You can apply for long-term parking in the City's parking garages for cars in daily use. Unfortunately, it is not possible to estimate how long it will take to receive an approved parking garage subscription.

Resident parking permits

A resident parking permit is a parking card for people living in areas where parking is subject to charges. Holders of resident parking permits can park a car free of charge in paid parking within the area of validity of their card.



Parking citations

There are two types of parking citations, extra parking tariffs, and parking violation charges. Extra parking tariffs (commonly referred to as parking tickets) are imposed when paid parking has not been paid for. Parking violation charges, in turn, are imposed when a car or other vehicle is parked illegally.


Parking for people with reduced mobility

People with reduced mobility who have difficulty getting to and from public parking may be eligible for a parking card. Parking cards allow for parking in specially marked spaces for people with reduced mobility and parking for free in paid outdoor parking.


Obligation to pay

Parking your car doesn’t always cost the same. There are 4 different paid parking zones and the pricing varies from zone to zone. Here you can view a map of the zones, how much it costs, and how to pay.
