Important things to keep in mind:
  • In the event that the zones are not working (certain holidays) and you send and SMS to one of the two numbers – you will not be charged.
  • On certain holidays the Urban┬áMobility Center can extend the borders of the blue and green zones.
  • If you miss your time it is very likely that a bracket will be placed. At this point you have until 17:00 to pay the ticket and wait for the UMC to remove the bracket, however sometimes they will tow your car prior to the designated time and that will incure more costs.
  • Do not park in a zone for even a minute without sending an sms to the listed numbers.
Where to pick up your car if it is towed?
  • The initial cost is 30 leva and another 60 for them to take it to the tow yard. To that they will add an hourly fee.
  • If you do not speak the native tongue and you can always visit our concierge page and we will try our best to help you.If you do – you can reach the Urban┬áMobility Center at +359 2 983 6747.
