A future approach towards parking and urban mobility

Parking changes urban development

Adam Jędrzejewski

My history with parking dates back to 2010, when I established an NGO dealing with parking matters. I did it to express my vision of a city – better organized, user-friendly, eco-friendly and simply smart, a city for people. A city where public space has not only its unique value or defined esthetics, but also its price. A city that can take some difficult long-term decisions such as tidying up urban parking zones, limiting the number of parking spaces, restricting access for private cars to certain areas, increasing parking fees and investing into shared and low emission solutions for urban mobility.

I am pretty much satisfied observing today’s cities and their parking and mobility policies, which are transforming into more sustainable ones. And this trend is also slowly coming to Poland. Its ultimate aim is to make city residents independent from car ownership and to use the city in a much more sustainable way.

I am also glad that the knowledge and skills acquired over several years of dealing with the subject of parking are appreciated by many Polish and foreign companies and institutions developing parking projects and/or policies. I am convinced that parking will play an increasingly important role in shaping the urban reality and that more and more decision-makers will be aware of it.

Below you will find our main goals as well as the contact details. I don’t mind speaking English, German or Swedish.

Goal 1

Effective parking policy

Sorting out parking issues is a challenge for every city, today more and more often seen as a necessity in improving quality of urban life.

Goal 2

Freeing up public space

Today, cities don’t need so many parking spaces. Liveable cities have much more space freed up from on-street parking.

Goal 3

Public-Private Partnerships

PPPs are a more effective way of carrying out public tasks such as parking policy and enforcement, parking infrastructure and car sharing.

Goal 4

Sharing economy

Today, highly developed urban areas are not necessarily to be car parks fitting everyone’s car. Luckily, cities offer different means of mobility too.
