The aim of this article is to present successful and proven actions referring to the management of the parking space realized by the Municipality of Krakow. Skillful and effective management of the parking spaces has a significant impact on the quality of life of the citizens, changing their behaviors and introducing new, better means of transport, and also is an indicator of urban development and its transport systems. The authors present selected results of tests and their implementation. Effective parking management should constitute one of the major, well-coordinated transport policy tools, covering the entire transport system of the city. Urban transport has to face challenges and build relations between the revenues generated by the parking management system consistent with the financing of mobility management tools. Creating favorable conditions for sustainable transport can be done by acquiring knowledge on the ways in which increase the level of social and political acceptance for parking management as a source of income for activities related to increasing the role of sustainable energy-efficient urban transport modes.
