Tourist stops are places of limited parking time (max. up to 10 minutes) only for tourist coaches delivering organized groups of tourists, i.e. under the care of a person representing the organizer of tourism – pursuant to art. 30 par. 1 of the Act of August 29, 1997 on hotel services and services of tour operators and tourist guides (consolidated text, Journal of laws of 2019, item 238).

Restricted parking places for tourist coaches are marked in the city with the B-35 sign ("parking ban") with a sign saying: "Does not apply to tourist buses up to 10 minutes." and the horizontal road sign "K+R BUS".

1. You should drive up to the stop only to allow passengers to leave the bus or to pick up a waiting group.

2. When you stop at the bus stop, turn off the bus engine.

3. To enable smooth traffic, leave the stop immediately after passengers leave or enter the bus. The bus stop time cannot exceed 10 minutes.

Failure to comply with the above provisions may result in criminal sanctions.
