Parking is important for the redefinition of the role of cities, between the “motorway” culture and re-urbanisation. Centralised parking in cities has been proven to decrease the dependency on car trips and improve the public domain. However, implementing integrated parking strategies is a challenging task, for both local authorities and parking operators.
To create a better understanding between the different actors in parking activities, the European Parking Association (EPA) and Polis have established a partnership to discuss the interaction of urban transport and parking activities. Both organisations regularly exchange information and expertise about making parking in cities better.
This document identifies the main challenges that were identified during the last two years of joint Polis and EPA activities. Parking is a concrete problem, with concrete solutions. That is why concrete cases and practical issues have been included.
