Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

I've bought my 1st car here in Zurich.
I am getting the plates tomorrow
After I get the plates I want to get the annual blue zone parking pass
-- Where is the place I can do that?
I've read (on an old post) that I can't do it online for my 1st car, or I would be doing it online.

I don't know of any restriction w.r.t. 1st or 2nd car. Did you try here:
https://e-gov.stadt-zuerich.ch/egpak...ml?firma=false

Or to download the form as a .pdf which you then send per post:
https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/content...irmen_2016.pdf

Both only in German.

I was born with the tolerance of a stone. This is fortunate as I was also born with the social skills of an armadillo, and the attractiveness of a Coelacanth.

Re: Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

I know it works for other places in Switzerland but I could not find an answer for Zurich: Can one get a permit to park in the blue zone close to your place of work or is it just possible for the blue zones close to your residence ?

As far as I am aware the card is for the same PLZ as your residence.

Re: Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

How's your German? Here's some info and there is an online shop. It looks like it depends on your "wohnquartier" which is probably where you live.

The OP is actually looking to buy a "macaron" - annual parking pass from the city which allows him to park in blue zones for longer than the time normally allowed. He is not looking for the blue disk that you mention.

Re: Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

What if one wants a resident parking but lives right on the edge of a kreis... in my case, the next street is another kreis, but there are more parking possibilities there.

The card is by default for the zone (and not the whole kreis) where you live.

Re: Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

Ah, well in my case, that seems to be the same thing. Im at the edge of 8048, and the next street along (with lots of parking) seems not to be 8048.

Yes the blue zone parking permit system in Zurich City is postal code based:
https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/pd/de/i...l#&gid=1&pid=1

You have to look at the actual signage, some streets at the border of zones allow long term parking for residental of both zones.

Here a sign at Dennlerstrasse permitting long term parking for 8047 and 8048

Re: Blue Zone parking - Where do I get it

In case it becomes a question for someone in the future, although may seem obvious!!

After calling Dienstabteilung Verkehr, the lady confirmed over the phone that in case that one orders the permit in the middle of the year, it should not be paid in full but for the remaining months until the end of the year.

Ya ya... i know... you guys all knew about it
