The ultimate guide to parking in Villeurbanne

Villeurbanne, a town located next to Lyon in the Rhône-Alpes region, is the most densely populated suburb in France. It is the 20th city in France by population with nearly 150,000 inhabitants and a surface area of 14.52 m2. Like many large cities, parking problems are frequent in Villeurbanne. 

Whether you are from Villeurbanne or just passing through, this parking guide could help you to park in Villeurbanne: 

Parking on the street 

Parking on the street is not always easy because there are few spaces compared to the number of requests and prices can quickly become high. There are 2 types of parking zones in Villeurbanne. 

The rates for zone 1 (town centre) are as follows: 2€/hour for 1.5 hours and 3.40€/hour after that. 

The rates for zone 2 (outside the town centre) are as follows: 1.40€/h up to 2.5 hours and 3.80€/h beyond this time. 

If you live in Villeurbanne, you can opt for the residential subscription allowing you to get a 33% discount on parking spaces, which is not negligible. This residential pass is free and is valid for one year and thanks to it you benefit from a parking ticket at a preferential rate. 

Parking in a covered car park

If you don't want to leave your car in an on-street parking space, opt for a covered car park. We strongly advise you to park your car in the town hall car park. It has 369 parking spaces and is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

The rate between 9am and 8pm is €0.50 for 15 minutes. This car park also allows you to take out various subscriptions such as for your motorbikes, bicycles but also unlimited or resident subscriptions. 

Parking solution adapted to your needs 

Another option you might also like: shared parking. Thanks to this system, you can reserve a parking space for the duration of your choice by taking out a subscription online. Then, a mobile application will allow you to open the parking gate so that you can manage your parking yourself. 

Shared parking has many advantages such as simplified access, secure parking spaces and very attractive prices. These parking spaces belong to owners who make their spaces available to private individuals.
