Schiphol closes a deal for P1 Short Parking with EasyPark formerly Parkmobile, part of the EasyPark Group. Opening the barrier on entry and exit and payment is done fully automatically here. Collectors and deliverers or short-term parkers no longer have to go past the parking meter, but can easily arrange this via the app.
P1 Parking at Schiphol has 4.200 parking spaces. Visitors can now park here for short-term parking (without reservation until 48 hours) using automatic number plate recognition via EasyPark formerly Parkmobile. ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras ensure that the barrier opens automatically on arrival and departure. As soon as the license plate of the vehicle is recognized and in this case linked to the app, the barrier opens automatically. The parking transaction also stops automatically when you leave the garage, after which the payment is made via the app.
Marius Koerselman, Country Director EasyPark Netherlands: “We want make parking in garages as easy as parking on the street.” With three million users of the EasyPark formerly Parkmobile app in the Netherlands, it is clear that the Dutch are used to paying for parking through an app instead of a payment terminal. Marius adds: “We want to make it easier to find a free space and to pay for parking. Both on the street and in garages. After activating your license plate in the app for license plate recognition, the barrier opens automatically at the affiliated garages, including P1, and you pay automatically. Easy! After Norway, this is the second time that we have entered into a partnership in Europe with an airport (car park).”
EasyPark’s mission to improve parking to make things easier is in line with Schiphol’s vision for the future Dieme Ketel, Manager Parking & Mobility Services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol: “We are always looking for innovations to increase the ease of use for customers. is what Schiphol stands for. This means something different for every parker. For example, one parker opts for security by reserving a parking space, while the other parker wants the convenience of entering without a reservation. formerly Parkmobile can facilitate this last group in even easier entry and exit via the app.”
