It is aimed at encouraging and facilitating a systematic use of bays reserved for tourist coaches. In so doing, negative and harmful effects on local inhabitants of traffic or vehicles stopping, are kept to a minimum.
In every central coach park and in certain bays on roads in central Paris, the PassAutocar only allows up to 3 hours parking accumulated within a time period from 8h to 19h.

The company has to sign an agreement regarding quality and good practice (adherence to regulations, vehicle pollution norms).If a company does not abide by its committments, it will no longer be authorised to buy new individual units at a reduced tariff.
The Subscriber PassAutocar doesn't exclude the use of day PassAutocar by the same company.

The Shuttle River Boat PassAutocar

Travel organisers or coach companies who have booked a river bus trip to get to Notre Dame can take advantage of a special parking pass, with a validity for four consecutive hours (from time of arrival) in a peripheral parking area (Bercy or Pershing Parking Areas). They obtain from the central reservation centre of shuttle river boats, a reservation number for a given group and date. Once the reservation has been made, the coach operator will, from that point on, be able to buy a "shuttle river boat pass" for the same day, on entering his reservation number on the site "autocars.paris.fr."
