EXPLAIN chosen to propose innovative solutions for managing parking spaces at train stations

P1030271Suburban train stations offering access to large metropolitan areas are subject to strong parking pressure with many commuters accessing by car. This situation can be a source of conflicts with those who live in the vicinity of stations and use valuable land which could be devoted to other urban projects.

The Hauts-de-France region asked EXPLAIN to identify new technology based solutions that could be experimented around selected regional train stations. For each of the proposed solutions, we identified technical, financial barriers as well as governance constraints.
