QIWI Terminals Available for Boulevard Ring Parking Payments

Muscovites can now pay for parking in the city center through QIWI terminals, the city's department of transportation and road infrastructure announced Friday.

Service at the terminals, used widely to pay for cell phone service, became available to Moscow residents at the beginning of October, the department's press service told Interfax.

After selecting the Moscow Parking page, drivers will need to enter the appropriate parking zone, duration of parking and their vehicle's license plate number.

City authorities introduced payments for parking within the Boulevard Ring on June 1.

Officials have said that the introduction of paid parking in the city center has lowered the number of parking violations by 64 percent, while the overall number of cars entering the paid zone decreased by one-fourth.
