People parking at GSP stadium will have to pay a daily or monthly fee from the start of next year unless using the park & ride service, it was revealed on Monday.

According to information obtained by the Cyprus Mail, there are plans to place entry bars at the parking areas in GSP stadium in Nicosia.

All people, except those using the Cyprus Public Transport’s Pame Express park & ride service will have to pay a small fee on the weekdays.

Business development manager of Cyprus Public Transport Alexander Kamberos reassured that people using the park & ride service will not be affected as the government will cover their parking fee with funds to the company.

Kamberos said the plan is to issue motion sensor cards that will be given to people using the park & ride so that they can activate the barriers and continue to park for free.

Meanwhile, others parking at GSP, either for carpooling or soldiers parking there, will have to pay a fee.

Commenting on the fee, general manager of GSP Foivos Constantinides said the fee could be €1 per day or €10 per month.

He added that when there are matches on the weekends, people will not have to pay to park if they are attending the sporting event.

According to the latest figures, there are around 650 users of the Pame Express service, and a total of 34,500 routes have been conducted by the service.
