Avoidance of traffic jams in the Pfarrwiesensee parking lot
The challenge

Long waiting times at the parking area

The bathing beach at Pfarrwiesensee in Rhineland-Palatinate is a popular destination, especially in summer. Due to its popularity, there were regular tailbacks at the entrances and exits during peak times at weekends. Waiting times at the parking ticket machines caused additional frustration for bathers.


Payment of the actual parking time

Six scanners record the license plates of arriving and departing vehicles to determine the parking time. At the end of their stay, bathers pay cashless at one of the two machines, stating their license plate number, or buy day or season tickets at the beginning of their visit. This allows them to leave the parking area spontaneously at any time. For visitors who pay for their parking via the EasyPark app, there is no need to go to the ticket machine at all.

The digital parking management system from Peter Park is particularly suitable for seasonally busy areas such as bathing lakes. Visitors to the parking area in the Pfarrwiesensee recreation area in Gimbsheim benefit from an improved parking experience. Thanks to the new barrier-free and paperless system, the area can now be used around the clock.

"As the parking lot belongs to a bathing lake, we have a special situation here because most people leave the lake in the evening. At this peak time, the machines can be busier than during the day. The app payment and the day ticket, which can be purchased on arrival, are alternatives that do not require a trip to the ticket machine after a day at the lake. When introducing the new, barrier-free system, we deliberately opted for these diverse payment options."
