Moving around an urban area by vehicle and the act of parking are an almost integral part of everyday urban travel. Proper organization of parking spaces and the convenience of using them by drivers is key to follow the idea of sustainable urban development and manage the mobility of urban infrastructure users. Parking is influenced by many technical, organizational, economic and social factors. The aim of this work was to analyze and evaluate the functioning of the paid parking zone in Rzeszów, a voivodeship city located in the south-eastern Poland. In the presented case study, the authors, based on data collected from the Metropolis Intelligent Paid Parking System (PPS), determined the occupancy levels of parking subzones in the studied periods of time and analyzed the obtained results. The data and designated indicators available in the system can be the basis for taking appropriate steps to enable effective city management, which will result in, among others increasing the quality of life of residents.
