APCOA: Without Barriers, Without Cash - Parking Without a Ticket in Leipzig

Project FreeFlow Makes Parking Easier and More Modern

- Stuttgart, Germany
Without a barrier, you can quickly enter the underground car park, and you don't have to take a ticket.

APCOA PARKING Germany is taking another step into the future and is now making parking in Leipzig even easier. Barriers, printed paper tickets, and handling small change are just as much a thing of the past as the detour to the pay machine.

In the Burgplatz underground car park in Leipzig (Petersstraße 36-44), since the beginning of April 2023 the number plate has been automatically recognized upon entry and the paperless ticket can be paid for online within 24 hours of exit if desired.

Parkers in Leipzig who are in a hurry can now save a lot of time when parking in the city centre. Without a barrier, you can quickly enter the underground car park, and you don't have to take a ticket. Instead, an LPR camera recognizes the car's license plate number and automatically starts the parking process. Should questions arise, the intercom no longer needs to be used - customers can contact APCOA directly by mobile phone or e-mail.

When exiting, the number plate is scanned again and the parking process is ended. Customers have a choice when it comes to paying: at the pay station in the underground car park, via the APCOA FLOW app (available in the coming weeks), online at apcoa.de or directly when exiting the terminal. Those who opt for the uncomplicated process on the Internet can enter and pay for their license plate number before exiting or up to 24 hours later at www.apcoa.de/LeipzigBurgplatz. The website can also be accessed via a QR code on the on-site signs. Cashless payment at machines or terminals is possible. Once the parking fee has been paid, the system automatically anonymizes the data after exiting.

The Future of Parking

With the new offer in Leipzig, APCOA confirms its pioneering role as an innovative service provider. We offer our customers an even simpler parking process and are moving further into the future of parking with technological support,” says Tobias Beau, Director Digital Products & Innovation at APCOA PARKING Germany.

Together with the partner ARIVO, a young company with a strong focus on digitization, the new freeflow offer is made possible. The integration of the APCOA FLOW app will be completed in the coming weeks and is not yet available for launch on April 1st. Intelligent software enables a barrier-free parking system with online payment without traffic jams at the entrance or the payment terminal. "Following the premiere on April 1 in Leipzig, further FreeFlow offers are to follow in APCOA car parks - such as in Bonn or Dresden," says Anja Müller, Director Operations at APCOA PARKING Germany.
