How can we make on-street parking a success? 3rd EPA-Polis Parking workshop, 10 September, Dublin

10 September 2013 DIT, Bolton Street, Dublin 1, Room 444

NEW SPEAKERS CONFIRMED!

 

The event will focus on good practice in planning, operating and enforcement of on street parking. Aspects such as information and data management will be addressed as well. The event will also be the moment that the EPA-Polis annual paper/ report is presented. This will be based on a series of interviews with urban transport and parking stakeholders in European cities. The seminar will also build on first results of the TIDE project.

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 urban public space. 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. As part of their creating an interchange of ideas, Polis and EPA organised a successful seminar in Stuttgart, on the 16th of May 2011, and in Helsinki on the 17th of September 2012. A third event is now planned on the 10th of September 2013.

The workshop is organised in cooperation with the Dublin Institute for Transport. Participation is free of charge.

The event takes place the day before the EPA congress. for more information about this event visit http://www.epacongress.eu/
