Blue line zone is fine until 9am Monday. The blue zones are time limited to one hour with the cardboard clock thingo on the dashboard, Mon-Fri 8am to 6pm, a free for all outside those hours. I do this quite often with weekend hire cars.

Edit - looks like its 90 min so even better, every hire car I have had has a time wheel in the glove box.

Hiya

So just so can get this traight.

Monday to Friday is 60 mins with the dashboard dial displayed
Friday after 6pm to Monday morning at 8am I can leave the car in a blue zone without moving it at all?

Do i still have to display the dial stating time of arrival on Friday?

Re: Zurich Parking [Blue Zone info]

Some very basic questions... How do I know if my street (in 8003) is in a Blue Zone?

I'm renting a car for the weekend and need to park overnight near my apartment - from reading this thread it seems that I can park after business hours in a Blue Zone for free. Is this true? Do I need to display a disk?

Cheers!

Mike

You know it's a blue zone parking if the lines on the ground are blue. If you don't actually have access to the stree, I'd suggest to have a look on street view.

Check the signs on the street for the times. After-hours you still have to put the disk in the window, so they know when you parked. Otherwise you risk a fine (ask me how I know)

You can park any time in a blue zone, free, as long as you stay within the time limits and as long as there isn't a payment machine in operation. After hours (and lunchtimes!) are usually free, but the definition of both varies and should be signposted.

Thanks for that - it seems that we are in a blue zone and there are also some metered places. It seems that parking overnight in the metered spots is ok (?), do you know about the blue zone spots? I don't have a parking permit because I'll only have the car for two days

See my post above. You should be able to park for up to 1.5 hours at a time, free, as well as at lunchtimes and after hours. But some blue zones are restricted to less than an hour; some offer 3, 6 or even more hours of free parking. Check the signs!

Re: Zurich Parking [Blue Zone info]

In Bern you can purchase a daily parking pass at the train station. You leave it on your dash just like you would the blue disk. I assume you can do the same in Zürich. Then you don't need to worry about times or fines. But of course it's not free.
