If you park in Southampton city centre on a regular basis, you may benefit from buying a season ticket to get cheaper parking.
The city centre is defined as the area within the boundary of the pay and display zone (controlled zone), and entry signs are placed on all major routes. You can see this on our parking map.
Electric vehicle users can also claim a 90% discount on any of our season tickets for which they are eligible (the ‘Fuel type’ on the vehicle’s V5C must say ELECTRIC or ELECTRICITY only).
Some multi-storey car parks in the city centre can be paid for using a prepaid parking card. These can be topped up and in some cases may offer a discount.
Please note: any existing Weekend Season Tickets will now be treated as being valid on Evenings and Weekends.
