The categories are:

  • Residents: only available to residents of Monaco who must prove that they live close to a chosen car park and their car is registered in Monaco
  • Employee (l'abonnement professionnel): allows 250 or 300 hours of parking each month in car parks close to the place of work
  • Car-pooling (l'abonnement covoiturage): allows special parking rates and priority parking spaces
