Solutions for the Parking Sector
It is estimated that there are between 17,000 and 20,000 non-residential car parks in Great Britain, including those run by councils, commercial parking companies, shops, hospitals, businesses, railway stations and airports, providing between 3 and 4 million spaces*.
The average motorist in the UK spends nearly four days every year (91 hours)** looking for parking spaces, according to new research from the British Parking Association (BPA). Time is valuable and could be being spent elsewhere, in addition the time spent driving around only adds to congestion and air pollution. Looking for a parking space can also be stressful and put people off visiting or staying at your location.
We are proud to be members of British Parking Association (BPA) who support parking and traffic management professionals to deliver the highest quality services that benefits society and the environment.
**Department of Transport National Travel Survey indicates 921 car journeys per person / a year. According to research conducted by BPA the average time motorists spend looking for a space = 5.9 mins. 921 x 5.9 / 60 mins = 90.5 hours.
