It was only a few years ago that you could park your motorcycle anywhere in Paris. Sidewalks, dead spaces and commercial parking garages were all fair game. But then the Socialists took over the running of Paris, and things started going downhill for motorcycle riders. Bus lanes are forbidden, strict riding laws are now in effect, and most importantly, you are no longer allowed to leave your PTWPowered Two Wheel - motorcyles, scooters, mopeds on the sidewalk.

The Parisian City Hall promised dedicated free motorcycle parking spaces in most areas, but like all politicians, did not deliver, apart from a few thousand or more spots, not enough for one handful of bikers. So there's an eternal shortage of motorcycle parking spots in Paris, a financial bonanza for the city (in terms of parking fines) and for parking garages. Parking garages used to be free for bikes, but that is no rare.

So now you've got to hunt for parking spots, just like cars. For the Mayor it doesn't matter that you're burning fuel while searching, emitting CO2 into the atmosphere. All he wants is money.

To make your life easier, there's now a parking reservation service for Paris. Setup initially for cars, they've turned to the lucrative market of motorcycles and scooters.

ParkingsDeParis.com Open link in a new window negotiate bulk parking spaces in commercial parking garages, and you can reserve the spaces, either on demand, or on an annual basis. For example, a parking in the center can cost you €42 for the month if you take an annual subscription. A lot cheaper than parking tickets.

It's a pity that things had to come to this stage. Maybe when Paris gets a forward thinking Mayor like London, things will shape up again. In the mean time, you can reserve your spot.
