APCOA PARKING Danmark A / S takes over OnePark A / S in Denmark

/en/press-news/news/latest-articles/article/apcoa-parking-danmark-a-s-takes-over-onepark-a-s-in-denmark/

APCOA PARKING, the largest parking company in Denmark, is now even larger due to the acquisition of Onepark, previously owned by Per Lyngbak Nielsen. Onepark managed more than 30,000 parking spaces in Denmark.

The take over combines the strong characteristics of both companies. With the financial strength of the APCOA Group in mind, this merger will lead to more opportunities for further investments in activities and technology.

Both APCOA PARKING and OnePark see the merger as a great opportunity to further expand the level of service to both consumers and owners of parking facilities in Denmark by combining the best knowledge, the best parking systems and the best experience of parking activities.

APCOA PARKING starts pilot autonomous parking

/en/press-news/news/latest-articles/article/apcoa-parking-starts-pilot-autonomous-parking/

APCOA Parking participates in an autonomous parking test that will be organized next year in the parking garage of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.

The news was announced by a representative of DPA (Deutsche Presse-Agentur). As part of the "SynCoPark" project, visitors can leave their car, when provided with an autonomous parking function, at the entrance of the "Elphi" parking garage and then pick it up again after a concert at the exit. The car drives independently into the parking garage and looks for a parking space on its own. APCOA PARKING is closely involved in this project.

The parking garage of the concert hall has 435 parking spaces in total. The first tests will be conducted in the second half of 2020. "SynCoPark" is a collaboration between scientists from the Technical University Braunschweig (Research Center Car Engineering) and various companies from the industrial sector. In addition to APCOA PARKING as a parking operator, the car manufacturers VW and BMW are also involved.

For research purposes, a new parking lot is currently being equipped at Braunschweig Airport with digital infrastructure for testing automated parking. The experiences gained during this process will be used in the parking garage in Hamburg. In addition, the intention is to develop standards that certify digital infrastructures in parking garages and in vehicles.

Autonomous parking is a spearhead of the International Mobility Congress ITS 2021 in Hamburg, for which more than 50 projects have already been registered. These concern, among other things, autonomous driving, traffic pressure prognosis and mobility platforms. The "SynCoPark" project is funded by the German Bundesverkehrsministerium (Ministry of Transport) with 2.5 million euros.

More convenience in payment in parking garages

/en/press-news/news/latest-articles/article/more-convenience-in-payment-in-parking-garages/

You can pay, in more and more places, with your debit card without having to enter your pin code. This brings a lot of convenience and safety. After all, you travel with less cash on the street and your pin code cannot be copied.

 

In the parking world, this form of payment, also known as tap & go, has been around for some time. Abroad, you can already pay for contactless tolls at toll booths and parking machines and in the Netherlands this payment method is becoming more and more known. This payment method is suitable for a maximum amount of € 50.00.

At APCOA PARKING we have a number of car parks that already offer this payment convenience. You can draw a ticket at the entrance and then pay at the payment machine with your bank or credit card, but you can also exit with your payment card. This gives the following conveniences:

  • You do not need a parking ticket
  • You no longer have to go to the payment machine
  • You are quickly on your way to your next destination


How does contactless payment work at APCOA PARKING?

All payment cards with the contactless logo are suitable for driving out. By holding your card in front of the card reader at the exit you open the barrier and you leave the garage. So you do not have to go past the payment machine first, but leave the car park with your payment card. The parking costs are automatically deducted from your bank account number.

Another option at APCOA PARKING is driving in and out with the same payment card. The difference with the above information is that you open the barrier with your payment card and check in our system. Leaving the garage is the same as described above.

In which parking garages can I pay in this way?

In the garages below you can easily drive out with your debit card:

•    Parking Heinekenplein
•    Parking Havenkwartier
•    Parking Savornin Lohmanplein
•    Parking Leidsche Rijn centrum
•    Parking Winkelcentrum Nova
•    Parking Albert Cuyp

You can enter and exit the following parking garages with your payment card:

•    Parking Westblaak
•    Parking Albert Cuyp
