I'm with the "call the police on the non-emergency number" brigade.

Think "What would a Swiss do?"
Any 'normal' Swiss would try other measures first, before calling the police ... via the landlord or directly with the Gemeinde, that deals with parking, and police only if the above do not deal with this effectively and quickly. Honest The police will only be able to deal with individual drivers caught on the day- the problem needs solving long term. Do you think the police will put a patrol there 24/7?

True - a real Swiss would leave passive aggressive notes on the windscreens of the coaches.

Call the police and also inform the landlord/regie and the gemeinde.

Re: Coach drivers parking in residential areas

I would contact the coach companies involved. Tell them you have photographic evidence of them parking illegally outside your flat and also tell them that their driver/s were abusive to you when you asked them to turn off the engines.

Tell them if they park there once more you will call the police.

Re: Coach drivers parking in residential areas

The guy said there were 5 coaches a day, a not negligable number so it's very likely the police are well aware of this "illegal" parking.

It is also possible the police directed the copaches to park their in the first place, for want of anywhere else and in order to keep the tourists ($$) comming in to Zurich without pissing off the tour companies.

As for asking the management company for a reduction....

WTF is it to do with the management company, they running the bus company too ?

We are speaking about the Zurich City. The relevant authority in Zurich City for parking spaces is the "Kontrolle ruhender Verkehr" which is part of the Verkehrskontrollabteilung which is part of the Zurich City Police, which unlike most other City Polices, fully replaces the Cantonal Police.
