Parking policies are a powerful lever for implementing mobility policies. The guarantee of available parking spaces is a determining factor when choosing to use one’’s car or not.
Parking is therefore a key tool for encouraging modal transfers, as it can be used to control the mobility demand.
In recent years, new technologies have contributed to significant developments in roadside parking and parking structures with the aim of:
- improving service for users (signalling, payment by mobile phone, etc)
- optimising parking enforcement (electronic penalty notices, offending vehicle detection, etc).
