Q-Park De Kroon, located at the Schermdoekshaven in The Hague, is the first Q-Park parking garage in the Netherlands where entry and exit are only possible by means of license plate recognition.
The parking garage, which will be renamed Q-Park garage at the end of July, is only accessible to season ticket holders. “From now on, they no longer have to show a pass or request access via the intercom. The license plate is automatically scanned and the barrier opens," explains Fred Wilkes, Director of Business Development at Q-Park Netherlands. “It's a great development to make parking just that little bit easier.” Q-Park's license plate recognition system is called PaSS: 'Parking as a Smart Service'. Almost all Q-Park parking garages in the Netherlands are now equipped with this, but in contrast to Q-Park De Kroon, payment can also be made in other ways. “But for our customers who use PaSS, the barriers open all over the country, based on their license plate. This way you never have to go to the payment terminal again. Invoicing will follow afterward.”
Adjustments can easily be made online with the Q-Park app, for example in the case of replacement transport or if you use your partner's car. The QR code in the app also gives you access to the parking garage to pick up your car.
Business season ticket holders can reserve a parking space for their guests online so that they can also drive in and out based on their license plate.
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.
