What is a Park & Ride zone?

Park and ride zones are parking lots near the public transport network that allow commuters and other people heading to city centres to leave their vehicles and transfer to a bus, rail system or carpool for the remainder of the journey.

The digital regulation and control of Park & Ride zones can reduce illegal parking and free up parking spaces for Passengers of the Public Transportation Network. 

Commuters should start a parking session with the mobile app upon arrival to obtain a valid proof-of-parking, and afterwards should validate it within the the Public Transport station.

What is a Pick-up & Drop-off parking zone?

Pick-up and Drop-off zones are very short-stay parking spaces for vehicles with passengers in either the Cities or Public Transport Parking facilities.

Any vehicle can obtain a valid proof-of-parking for a short-stay in order to leave or collect passengers. However, there might be zones only for taxis, coaches or registered vehicles.
