Abstract

The city of Šibenik is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Croatia. Its street parking is managed by a city company. In this paper, it was our aim to establish whether there was a difference in the methods of payment for street parking and the use of such services between different parking zones, as well as to determine the developments in the use of parking services and the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The analysis established the cyclical nature of the methods of payment for parking services and the use of such services by zones, caused by the tourist season. The research has shown that m-parking is the most frequently used method of payment for parking in the zones 0, 1 and 2, as well as that the significance of this method of payment declines in the summer months in comparison with winter. The research has also shown that the use of parking meters is the most prevalent in Zone 1+, while it is the least prevalent in Zone 0, whereas m-parking is most frequently used in Zone 1 and the least frequently in Zone 1+, while in Zone 0, bank cards are used more frequently in relation to other zones. A trend model has also been elaborated, and it was established that an average growth in the number of issued invoices of 209 per month is to be expected.
