Parking Space Management of the City of Salzburg


From September to November 2016, the Austrian Court of Audit (ACA) carried out an audit of the parking space management of the city of Salzburg. The audited period largely spanned the years from 2011 through 2015. In order to reduce the increasing vehicle traffic in the city and the commuter traffic, the city of Salzburg introduced, among others, short-term parking zones and an access system into the historic city centre. The objective of the audit was to evaluate the measures related to parking space management, the monitoring of such measures, the plans to expand the parking space management, the development of revenue and expenditure and the use of funds.
