Parking Space needed near Puidoux Chexbres

Dear EF members,
I'm looking for a parking space near Puidoux-Chexbres rail station (to be more specific, on Route De Sous La Ville). Apparently the ready-made solution would be to park the car inside the rail station, but monthly P+Rail facility is only available for people having monthly/yearly travelpass. Daily parking is three times more expensive than the monthly P+Rail rates.

Would appreciate very much if someone can come up with any suggestion.

Thanks for your responses.

This might be a stupid idea, but is there a blue zone parking there that you can obtain a permit? Or this is where you work so you can not get a blue zone permit?

Hello V,
I wouldn't say this is stupid idea, because people often overlook the basic things. unfortunately, the area doesn't have blue or white parking (which are free between 7:00 pm and 8:00 am). I was also discussing with some of the neighboring house owners, but they are not interested

Is this a car you use every day? Or would you leave it and use it at the weekend? I'm guessing since you don't have a rail pass you do use it every day. But I figured I'd ask.

Do you have multistorey parking near by? The one near me in Pully rents parking space on a yearly term!

That's what I though. My solution isn't going to work for you then.
Good luck!

How much is the parking at the P+R facility?

Might be worth buying a Mobilis pass for one zone (66/month or 660/year) even if you never use it.

Re: Parking Space needed near Puidoux Chexbres

Hi Swissrob,
Thanks for your feedback
there is no public option in Puidoux to have parking space on rental (according to the best knowledge I have). I'm also having a hurdle with the language, I still need to do a French course. therefore I couldn't communicate with a lot of people to do my search.

Hi Mark,
I thought of this option, need to check with the railway if they are happy to allot me a parking space with a mobilis pass.
