Parking garages become mobility hotspots
With its innovative concept, the Hofbräuhaus parking garage in Munich sets an example with regard to the current trend in the industry. Crowded city centres with parked cars, annoying searches for parking spaces, lack of charging infrastructure for e-mobility - there are a great many points of discussion when it comes to achieving a traffic turnaround. The concept of the Parkgarage Hofbräuhaus mobility hotspot impressively demonstrates that car parks could make a significant and thus decisive contribution to reaching this turnaround. Here, a car park as a centre of networked multimodality is already a reality. The operator of the parking facility, Bavaria Parkgaragen GmbH, and Scheidt & Bachmann, as the solution partner, impressively demonstrate what the next level of parking looks like.
The convenient location of the new mobility centre under the highly frequented Altstadtring offers an optimal starting point to get to places in the city centre, such as the pedestrian zone, the Hofbräuhaus and other well-known cultural institutions, but also the Deutsches Museum in no time. In addition to the 520 parking spaces, innovative services are also provided for short-term and long-term parkers, enabling them to conveniently change to another means of transport. Parking spaces for car-sharing vehicles, lockable bicycle boxes, a rental station for e-bikes and e-scooters are available. In addition, there are 18 charging points for electric vehicles, which can be expanded easily as demand grows. The charging service is controlled via entervo.charge and billed in one transaction with the parking fee via the parking ticket. The charging costs are charged to long-term parkers in addition to their monthly fee.
Mobility provider vehicles receive contactless access using the entervo.connect interface.
The directly affiliated public transport service can also be used. Residents can park their vehicles as long-term parkers and thus contribute directly to creating a car-free inner city and thus higher quality of life. Parcel stations relieve the street space of delivery traffic from parcel services. These stations are open around the clock and access is via the parking ticket or the corresponding control medium. Residents can easily pick up their parcels after they have parked their car or on the way to collecting their car.
Claus Schnell, Managing Director of Bavaria Parkgaragen GmbH, sees enormous potential in the successful example of the "Hofbräuhaus" parking garage.
“By using the car parks as mobility hotspots in the future, we can support the intermodal use of the individual transport options and we can further promote networking. Visitors and residents can thus choose their means of transport freely and contribute to more environmentally friendly mobility in the inner cities."
