…. actually, it depends where you parked your car!

1- Main squares in city centre:

Bellegarde, Republique, Carmes and Gambetta carparks

These 4 parking lots are all run by a private operator, the SAGS.
At the automatic barrier, simply take a ticket and when you exit, walk up to the pay station, insert the ticket and pay by cash (coins or notes) or credit card.

2- Anywhere else in town:

2 options:

1- Pay by plate parking system
