Recall parking area blue

The community of Saint-Martin reminds users that parking in downtown Marigot is governed by a blue zone, from Monday to Saturday from 8h to 18h. The purpose of the Blue Zone is to facilitate the rotation of vehicles and the sharing of parking spaces in the city center. The blue zone concerns the whole perimeter of the city center of Marigot and extends to the outsides of the city, on both sides of the Boulevard de France.

Panel P: The blue zone is indicated by a blue marking on the ground and by the installation of signs at the entrances and exits of the zone.

Handicapped or Reserved Places: Private parking spaces and reserved parking spaces (handicapped spaces, delivery areas, and places reserved for lenders) are not subject to the limited time parking of the blue zone.

Parking disks in the blue zone (1h30 permitted) are made available to the public at the Hôtel de la Collectivité in Marigot or at the territorial police station in Marigot and Grand Case.
The absence of a parking disk in the blue zone constitutes an offense punishable by a flat fine of 17 € and the removal of the vehicle by the prohibited parking pound. The territorial police are responsible for enforcing the current decree (No. 1034-2016).

Park on the outskirts of the Blue Zone

The car parks of Bellevue, Morne Rond (between Marigot and Sandy Ground) and Galisbay on the waterfront can be used by motorists to park their vehicle outside the blue zone. The Galisbay car park is served by a free shuttle bus between 7h and 19h, Monday to Friday.

The Community of Saint-Martin thanks you for your active participation in the success of this parking regulation system.

RESPECT FOR THE BLUE AREA IS A CIVIC AND CITIZEN GESTURE.

Urban buses: Reminder of transport conditions in downtown Marigot

By-laws 100-2009 and 105-2010 and 1054-2016 regulate the circulation of public transport vehicles to cross the city center of Marigot. They indicate the streets and traffic directions prohibited to passenger vehicles (not to be confused with tourist transports that have access to the whole territory, like taxis). The plan (attached) of Marigot's downtown clearly indicates the various possible routes.
The Community of Saint-Martin recalls here the instructions to be observed by the users and transporters in the matter of parking of the buses at the stops provided for this purpose.
A solemn reminder is given to the carriers and also to the users for the respect of the axis of the boulevard de France, which is the only authorized circuit to travel in direction of Sandy-Ground and Terres-Basses. People waiting for buses are called to wait in the bus shelters of the Boulevard de France, on the Front-de-Mer, and not at the corners of the streets of Liberty and President Kennedy, at the foot of the building Les Amandiers or in front Storefronts. The same applies at the corner of the Agrément roundabout and the Morne Valois road where stops and parking are prohibited. In the direction of Grand-Case, bus drivers and waiting passengers are invited to make use of the clearance (bus stop) before any roundabout.
For obvious rules of safety, it is imperative to use the bus stops and not to stop in the street and at every corner for the removal or loading of passengers. The adoption of civic and professional behavior by operators would contribute to a marked improvement in the flow of traffic in downtown Marigot and its surroundings and would avoid the traffic jams and constant discomfort caused to other motorists and road users .

Applicable regulations

In accordance with 518 of the Highway Code, bus drivers who operate public transit vehicles are required to stop at the stopping points for the removal and loading of passengers. This obligation is accompanied by a ban on stopping outside unauthorized stopping points. Carriers caught in violation will be prosecuted and arrested by the police.

The stopping points

Outside the space reserved for the Antoine GUMBS bus station, bus stops, with or without bus shelters, must be borrowed to remove and recover the passengers. Stop points are not parking areas. In the absence of passengers to drop off or retrieve, buses are not allowed to park in stops to wait for customers. This bad practice is very common at the bus stop of the Marina Royale, leaving Marigot.

The community of Saint-Martin invites bus drivers and their users to respect these safety instructions and thanks them for their understanding.
