The underground parking lot next to “Vassil Levski Stadium” subway station is expected to be completed by mid-October and it will be possible to be used by the public within the “Park and ride” system. It has 193 parking places and when they use the subway, people will park their vehicles for free. That was said today by the Mayor of Sofia Municipality Yordanka Fandakova during an inspection of the finishing work on the site.
The urban Mobility Centre has the task of completing the parking lot.
By mid-October the parking lot is expected to be available for usage within the “Park and ride” system in which parking is free if the subway is taken.
The goal of the buffer parking lots is to stimulate people to use the subway, Fandakova said.
