Parking, fast charging, and moving around the city on an electric (cargo) bike or scooter with a coffee or tea-to-go is now very easy in The Hague.
For the new Mobility Hub The Hague Center, the existing Q-Park location in The Hague has undergone a major change in recent months. The core is a "normal" parking garage with (fast) charging stations, but new facilities such as Shell Café, dry cleaning and laundry service, meeting room, workplaces, and shared mobility have been added.
“With the Mobility Hub The Hague Center, Shell wants to make it even easier for residents and visitors of The Hague to visit the city center or to be in the center on time for an appointment. So load your car and grab a tasty sandwich and hot drink while your shirts are being steamed. All in one place,” says Jeanine Bakx, Shell's general manager of Mobility for the Benelux and France.
Michiel Tenge, general manager at Q-Park Netherlands, adds: "We have been working with Shell for more than ten years to facilitate charging infrastructure and we are still expanding. The demand for charging points is increasing and we are happy to offer our space available for new forms of service such as fast charging. By adding shared transport, customers can travel effortlessly from A to B to get to their destination easily and efficiently."
The Mobility Hub on the Amsterdam Veerkade in The Hague is the first of several planned hubs that Shell and Q-Park are opening together in major cities to build a cleaner future.
According to Shell, a network of Mobility Hubs is a solution for inner cities where the pressure on quality of life is increasing. Mobility Hubs bring together useful services for today's city visitors, travelers, and mobile workers in one place.
Q-Park is notable for its quality approach and has a portfolio comprising over 3,300 parking facilities with more than 640,000 parking spaces in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, France, Ireland, and Denmark.
