Smart Parking

Because of the growing amount of cars no less than 1/3 of traffic in city centers is generated by drivers looking for a parking spot. Inner city traffic congestion increases, while available parking spaces are becoming ever so scarce because on-street parkings are used by commuters in stead of local retail customers.

Where the construction of new parking areas continuously forces you to do major investments as a local authority, smart parking management and the incentive for multimodal mobility provide you with a more efficient solution that is ever so durable. Furthermore, it’s also an answer to increase city earnings and cost management.

In using Be-Mobile smart parking and payment solutions to efficiently use existing parking infrastructure and ease search and pay for parking spaces, you hold a simple yet innovative way to deal with your city’s mobility issues. Saint-Ghislain is boosting local retail by improving the rotation of parked cars.
