Linköping presents a fully automatic parking system which removes any hassle at the parking garage or on the streets!

The most customer-friendly parking system has been deployed in Linköping!

In garages with boom barriers, you easily drive in and out without having to swipe neither card nor ticket. This saves both time and the environment. You just need to ensure that the license plate of the car is clean and visible, and the rest is taken care of by the parking system.

Even before you reach the parking garages, you can select a site, where you will be guided and even before you are there it is possible to see if there are any free parking spaces.

You don’t have to think about the time running out on the parking meter. With a new app to your phone you can start and stop the timer on the parking meter while you can pay for your parking as well. Simple and smooth without having to go to a machine or keep track of a ticket.
Everything is concerted in the same seamless system.
