POLIS is delighted to announce our new webinar series in cooperation with the European Parking Association (EPA). The series will showcase several European cities, who will share their experiences with on-street and kerbside vehicle management.

This first event will kick off a series of three webinars focusing on several aspects of urban parking, including technological advancements and the adaption of off-street parking activities to new mobility services.

POLIS and the EPA have been working on this topic for over a decade together, bringing their respective members and expertise to the table for innovative and collaborative solutions. This webinar series will continue this work, drawing together public sector and industry stakeholders to discuss how new parking solutions can support the transition to a sustainable mobility future.

Parking space management (fees, controls, regulations and services) is an important link enabling the modal split variation between individual to public transportation or new mobility schemes  (eg. EV, loading and unloading bays). Car parks are being rapidly transformed into “Urban Mobility Hubs” connecting and enabling a modal shift of people and goods. Smart Parking solutions (digital connectivity) seamlessly integrate to Smart Mobility and Smart City solutions. The parking sector, with decades of experience in on- and off-street parking, is integrating with all new mobility services facilitating a viable shift to sustainable mobility solutions.

From Lisbon to Oxford, cities discuss parking solutions for cars and delivery vans, as well as the setup of EV charging services, including the respective regulations and controls. Additionally, topics such as environmental access management, permits, fines, seamless payment systems will be highlighted by a handful of large and medium-sized European cities.
