Kur- und Kongreß-GmbH has launched a new parking service in Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe. Seven car parks can now be used digitally as the operator has joined evopark mobility CONNECT. mobility CONNECT is an open, manufacturer-independent mobility platform and forms an interface between car park operators and mobility providers.
The mobility CONNECT website offers end customers an overview of all mobility providers connected to mobility CONNECT. They can then click on the company of their choice, are forwarded to its website, and can book the service there. Users can choose between the services of PARK NOW, EasyPark, PayByPhone, Mercedes me, and Porsche Parken Plus. The Software as a Service provider evopark acts as a technical service supplier for all participating partners. End customers receive their access medium conveniently by post. Registered users can use their access medium to enter connected car parks contactlessly and pay their parking costs digitally. Entry and exit times are registered to calculate the parking fee. Drivers can view the incurred costs at any time via the customer account of their chosen service provider.
"We are glad to have taken another step towards a digital Bad Homburg. With the help of this new solution, we see a significant improvement in service for our citizens," said Alexander Hetjes, Lord Mayor of the City of Bad Homburg.
"Thanks to the electronic parking card, drivers no longer have to take a paper ticket. On the one hand, this is good for the environment and, at the same time, it gives us the opportunity to avoid contact points," emphasizes Holger Reuter, Managing Director of the Kur- und Kongreß-GmbH. The digital parking system has already been implemented in the Casino car park, at Karstadt, in the Kurhausgarage, in the Parkhaus am Bahnhof, in the Parkhaus am Markt, in the town hall car park and in the Schlossgarage.
"With the Kur- und Kongreß-GmbH, we have gained another valuable operator partner for mobility CONNECT. In 2021, we will continue to significantly expand the platform," emphasizes Henk de Bruin, Managing Director of evopark. Many well-known mobility service providers, as well as car park operators with parking facilities in over 50 cities in Germany, Finland, England, and the Netherlands, are already partners of mobility CONNECT.
