In the regions where events such as concerts and sporting events are held in Istanbul, the high parking rates under the “events” program have sparked a reaction. Private car parks charge up to 150 Lira for a few hours, while İSPARK charges a fee for the whole day. Parking attendants usually recognize those who come to the event by their uniforms or clothes.

One of the biggest problems in Istanbul is the lack of parking spaces. It is very difficult to find a place to park a car, especially in districts like Beşiktaş, Şişli and Kadıköy where the concerts and matches are intense. The parking lots have turned this into an opportunity. It was revealed that those who came to organizations such as matches and concerts received high commissions under the “event” program.

THE WHOLE DAY IS RECEIVED BY THE RIDERS WHO COME TO THE EVENT

On Şişli Kadırgalar street, where there are many areas for events, private car parks and İSPARK apply different fare policies on the days of the event. Drivers who come for a concert or game in the parking lots are charged a full day fee, regardless of the parking time. According to the rate written on the İSPARK parking sign at the entrance to Küçükçiftlik Park, 23 TL are charged for 1-2 hours of parking and 30 TL for 2-4 hours of parking, while drivers who come for a concert or game a full day fee is charged under the title of ‘event’, 50 lire is required. It has been learned that parking rates in nearby private car parks have increased up to three times on the days of the event.
