Last year EasyPark Group announced it had won the top position in Zurich’s public tender to create an open market with three mobile paid parking (MPP) providers. This solidifies Zurich as the first major city in Switzerland with an open market approach.
The issues of quality and security were prioritised when considering all seven valid submissions in the tender, according to Zurich Municipality.
EasyPark Group CEO, Johan Birgersson is thrilled to be launching in such an important European market.
“Zurich is really leading the way in a push for digitalisation and EasyPark has the prospect to create real change in this area. As well as making the lives of drivers easier, we are very much looking forward to being an integral part of creating smarter cities in Switzerland and Zurich is just the beginning,” he said.
As part of their mission to improve urban mobility in Zurich, EasyPark brings the full suite of industry leading services, including Find & Park, electric vehicle charging, the Parking Dashboard, off-street access solutions and in-car services.
Country Director of EasyPark Switzerland, Maurus Haefliger, says EasyPark Group is already looking at providing further functionality for the Swiss market.
“I am delighted to be heading up EasyPark’s operations in Switzerland. As an innovative company responding to the needs of forward-thinking markets like Switzerland, we must continue to lead digitalisation locally. In Switzerland the distribution of electric cars is above average, so we are already planning on offering EV charging outlets in the future,” he said.
