Broad social support for paid parking

A recent Q-Park customer survey, conducted in a large number of Western European parking facilities, shows that 86% of the parking customers understand the social necessity for paid parking.
This customer survey among 2,142 customers in ten countries and in 38 West European Q-Park parking facilities shows the attitudes towards paid parking and that people understand which urban challenges are solved in this way. We find the survey results extremely positive since they confirm the social role of Q-Park.

Stimulating sustainable mobility is one of the five strategic objectives of the Q-Park Corporate Social Responsibility policy. This is a requirement for a sustainable, economic and environmental development. In order to achieve balanced growth, Q-Park employs an integrated mobility policy so that the city centre parking requirements of visitors, residents and commuters are managed in an optimal way.

  •     74% are aware that regulated and paid parking  contributes    to this policy.
  •     76% are aware that this contributes to the accessibility and availability of parking facilities and parking places.
  •     66% are aware that this contributes to the stimulation of parking in the vicinity of public transport.

By aligning the parking tariffs to the demand for parking and by directing vehicles searching for parking to the available parking places, 86% of Q-Park customers find a parking space within 5 minutes. And this ensures a reduction of CO2 emission.
The opinion on who must bear the costs for parking in a city centre is clear: 61% say 'the user should pay'.
