Eco Parking


Drivers with a car with a fuel economy rating A know that their cars are more environmentally friendly, but now they can also park more cheaply. At Interparking, we call this Eco Parking. From June 1, 2014, this new way of parking is possible at the Markthal car park in Rotterdam.

A lower rate, a cleaner city
Eco Parking is win-win for everyone. On the one hand, drivers can park at a cheaper rate. On the other hand, the city centre stays cleaner. Interparking combines two important environmental aspects:

  • It promotes environmentally-friendly driving and
  • It reduces CO2 emission.

  • Drivers also become more aware about the fuel economy rating of their car. It is part of Interparking’s mission to contribute towards this awareness. 

    Number plate recognition
    As soon as a car enters the Lijnbaan car park, the reduction rate is calculated. The number plate registration system at the entrance can determine the fuel economy rating, as it is linked to the RDW (Dutch Road Administration) database. Drivers receive a special Eco Parking ticket, which gives a discount of €0.40 an hour for fuel economy rating A. The total reduction is shown at the payment terminal. Drivers can also find out what their fuel economy rating is in advance, via the RDW website:

    An eco-friendly parking solution
    Interparking’s mission is ‘Making the world move better’, which forms the basis of eco-friendly parking solutions such as Eco Parking. Eco Parking helps people get around in a more environmentally-friendly way. Interparking is the first car park operator in the Netherlands and Europe to introduce a parking reduction scheme based on the fuel economy rating. It is our plan to introduce Eco Parking at other Interparking locations in Europe.
