More and more cities are offering mobile parking in addition to traditional parking with paper tickets and cash, thus taking a step towards the future of traffic and parking management. SWARCO’s new parking app PARCO can be downloaded in Germany since April 2020 and is available in an increasing number of German cities. With PARCO cities offer their citizens and visitors an uncomplicated and reliable all-in-one solution for convenient and stress-free parking.
The user enters the destination. PARCO determines the best parking options near the desired location. The app displays information about the type of parking space (at the side of the road or in a parking garage), the possibility to charge an electric vehicle and the parking fees for the first hour.

The occupancy status predicts in real time how likely it is to find a free parking space upon arrival at the selected parking area.
