In this ever-changing world of the smart city, we go beyond traditional solutions to embrace technology and innovation. We are the experts in parking and help consumers get to their destination quickly and seamlessly.

We care.

APCOA PARKING is driven by a clear focus on our customers’ satisfaction, health, and safety. As part of this we offer special assistance programs for young mothers, handicapped and elderly people, and invest in campaigns for road safety aimed at young drivers.

We do all we can to guarantee a safe and pleasant environment within our parking lots and communities, and our efforts have not gone unnoticed – for example in the UK, where we are proud to have received an Investors in People Gold accreditation.

APCOA PARKING operates its company by keeping both the present and the future in mind. To achieve success in the long term, it is important to operate sustainably, to protect the environment and to use resources sparingly. Which is why APCOA PARKING has made a lasting commitment to society.

APCOA PARKING offers solutions for sustainable growth and operates car parks that make careful use of resources. Technical innovations such as CO2-reduced shuttle buses at airports help cities and airports reduce their CO2 emissions. APCOA PARKING also works with satnav map manufacturers to reduce traffic in cities caused by car drivers searching for a parking space.

Lessors can expect a sustainable approach to nature and a sustainable increase in the property's value from APCOA PARKING due to our sophisticated added-value programme.

Our achievements in brief:

  • CO2 reduction by intelligent bussing at London Heathrow Airport.
  • Introduction of an efficient, sustainable Traffic Management System, leading to CO2 reductions.
  • Installing solar panels on the multi-storey car park at Stuttgart airport, the power generated flows directly into the local grid.
  • Systematically programming over 1300 car parks into leading navigation systems, allowing drivers to reduce time and fuel spent on searching for a parking space and reducing city traffic.
  • Installation of charging points for electric cars in APCOA PARKING car parks.
  • Efficient managing parking areas by only installing systems with low energy consumption and reduced environmental impacts.
  • LED lighting and special sensors on ticket machines that make it possible to reduce their average energy consumption by over 70%.

Electric cars are here, and APCOA PARKING is ready! Owners of electric cars currently face two major problems: a short range and long charging times. At APCOA PARKING we equip our parking areas with state-of-the-art charging stations, so customers can easily charge their cars whilst carrying out their errands, making owning an electric car easier than ever. As of December 2017, we installed nearly 1.400 e-charging stations at APCOA locations across Europe.


All our car parks remain open for our customers! For everyone who needs to stay mobile during the lockdown, we are still there and supporting with our services. More...
