How intercept parking works

Intercepting parking lots are designed to offload traffic on the city’s highways. It is a secure open car park located next to a metro station or public transport stop, at the entrance to the city centre.

It is envisaged that the driver will get to the parking lot by car, then leave it under supervision, and in the city will go already by subway or bus. After working hours, the driver repeats his way in reverse: from the place of work he gets to the parking lot on the subway, then transplants into his car and drives home.

The secret of the overreaching parking lot, drawing attention to it: it’s free. After entering the parking lot and depositing the car, the driver receives a paid “Parking” ticket with a date, for two trips in the subway. Thus, without paying yet a penny, the driver quietly goes to work on public transport.

However, upon receipt of the car, the owner must hand back the card used and pay its cost (equal to the cost of two trips by public transport). And the card must be returned before 23.30 local time. Thus, the driver pays only his trip on the subway, and storage of his car in the interception parking is free of charge.

If the car owner loses the card, or does not use it, or is late (comes after 23.30) — he will have to pay the use of the car park at the current rate as if he left a car in a normal parking lot (not an intercept).

Appearing on the streets of cities, overreaching parking lots immediately began to be in demand among owners of personal transport. However, in order for them to earn full force, there must be much more of them — only in this case they will reduce the congestion of the city’s transport system and perform their main function.
