Special parking measures started for health care providers

Published: 31 March 2020Modified: 25 May 2020

It is not as easy for care workers to take public transportation to and from their work because of adjusted timetables due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. There are now special parking measures for this group of care providers. If they are travelling to their work, they will get free on-street parking in The Hague until 31 August 2020.

Do you work at a health care facility and would you like to make use of the measure? Then you can talk to your employer.

The municipality has sent the umbrella organisations for health care in The Hague an explanation of the measures and the registration process. Health care facilities which have questions about the parking measures can send an email to senior.parkeren@denhaag.nl.

Other measures

Other parking measures are in effect for the following health care workers.

Home care workers

They will not be able to use these measures. Residents living in paid parking zones who need care can apply for a parking permit for caregivers. These residents will then get a yearly credit of 400 hours to enable their caregivers to park for free. The municipality has supplemented this parking credit with an extra 50 hours of free parking for existing permit holders. These hours were credited to the parking permit automatically. In many spots in The Hague paid parking starts from 18.00 hrs.

GPs and nurses with a practice in The Hague

They can use the regular parking permit for GPs (huisartsen) and nurses. This permit is valid at all paid parking spots in The Hague.
