‘The role of smart parking management in urban mobility planning’
Parking policy is recognised to be one of the most powerful keys to manage urban mobility.  Good parking management can help to free up valuable public space, make our cities more attractive and resilient (as we noticed during COVID-19 pandemic), support the local economy, reduce vehicle traffic and congestion, improve road safety, and combat air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.  Moreover, parking management generates revenue to invest in sustainable mobility and urban and social improvements.

The session aims to provide ideas and evidence on how smart parking management could develop, increase, and speed up innovative parking solutions to become part of cities’ SUMP or linked planning processes.
