Strategic locations

We capture value for all our stakeholders through our portfolio of purpose-built and off-street parking facilities at strategic locations: in or near multifunctional inner-city areas, at public transport interchanges, and at hospitals.

In cities where we operate a certain number of car parks, we become a highly efficient parking operator and profound mobility partner. We can then engage in meaningful dialogue with other parking and mobility partners, including:

  • providers of parking route information systems;
  • urban planners regarding capacity of parking spaces needed and routing traffic;
  • public and private landlords to efficiently integrate and operate their car parks in our portfolio;
  • mobility providers such as public transport, shared cars and bicycles providers;
  • parking tariff policy makers.

With our integrated and connected expertise, municipalities can take multiple measures to:

  • reduce traffic searching for a place to park;
  • improve air quality and reduce emissions;
  • provide for sufficient parking capacity and proper usage, both on- and off-street;
  • create a more liveable urban environment.
