Parking in the city

A parking world of its own

Owing to their heterogeneous user groups with a wide variety of aims and durations of stay, city car parks have special management requirements. In particular they require a needs-oriented pricing structure at competitive prices, along with optimal management of capacity utilisation.

Furthermore, parking facilities in the city centre are often subject to periods of high traffic – for example on Advent weekends or on Sundays when shops are open for business. Depending on individual needs, these periods may require not only optimised parking and traffic flows, but also additional on-site personnel.

Owing to the changes that we are seeing in how people choose to get around, parking facilities at city locations are increasingly becoming “mobility hubs” – modern traffic junctions. This is why car sharing and e-mobility, as well as access to public transportation, must be integrated into the overall concept.
