PARCO launches in Wuppertal and becomes a mobility app

Mobile parking and more with the PARCO app in the city of Wuppertal

Wuppertal, 20 September 2022. SWARCO's mobility app PARCO is now available in the city of Wuppertal. With the app, users can pay parking fees by the minute without cash and find a free parking space without stress. In Wuppertal, however, PARCO offers a lot more and is becoming a mobility app. Besides Wuppertal, the PARCO app is currently available in more than 230 cities in Germany.

Stadt Wuppertal

The PARCO app enables road users in Wuppertal to find a suitable free parking space from anywhere and to be navigated there. The parking ticket for the roadside is purchased digitally in the app, where it can also be extended flexibly if required. Payment is made by the minute using PARCO, so that neither small change nor paper tickets are required. The parking process is monitored by the public order office as usual. For mobile parking with PARCO, the normal parking tariff applies in Wuppertal; there is no additional service fee for the time being.

In addition to the mobile parking function, PARCO offers several additional functions in Wuppertal that transform PARCO from a simple mobile parking app into a mobility app: In the Barmen district, for example, thanks to its connection to the existing SWARCO parking guidance system, the app shows which parking spaces are still vacant. EV drivers can find extra information about EV charging points in the PARCO app. In addition to the parking options, PARCO also provides information about other mobility options in Wuppertal, including links to the respective public transport providers, car-sharing services, etc. This helps users find the best transport option for their further journey.

Besides Wuppertal, PARCO can currently be used for mobile parking at more than 230 locations in Germany, for example in Cologne, Dortmund, Berlin, Hamburg or Frankfurt am Main.
