ParkShare is a private web application to share rented parking spaces at EPFL innovation Park for companies/employees of the EPFL Innovation Park
In the intent to provide a mutualized parking offer, we have developed in 2015 a parking space sharing application called ParkShare for occasional needs of the companies set up in the Park and their employees.
Every day we see that a number of rented parking spaces are not used for various reasons: business trip, vacation, part-time, sick leave, etc. Therefore, we suggest that these parking spaces are used wisely during these openings, i.e. for your visitors, for vehicles delivering your laboratory products, for your own specific needs, etc.
Please note that this method of parking is not a regular neither a permanent offer. Moreover, we are limiting the use by a personal credit system of 120 points/year/person.
How does it work?
Through the ParkShare app, companies are able to offer parking spaces to the Innovation Park’s community. These spaces can be booked by any user (employee of a company installed in the Park with a login on the InnoPark app’) by day or half day.
The Parkshare offer is limited to the underground parking QI-O called “Parking Ouest”.
A credit of 60 points per semester is automatically allocated to each user (in January & July).
- Half a day costs 3 points and a full day 6 points.
- Once the space is booked, the points are debited and the parking space number is sent to you.
- There is no way to get back in case you are changing your plans. Once used, the points are permanently debited.
To optimize this service, we need your help in offering parking lots openings. So far there are only a few spaces offered, so it is in everybody’s interest to start sharing!
In April 2019, we have redesigned the ParkShare website to make it more user-friendly to encourage companies to participate in this program.
Companies willing to join the ParkShare app appoint an “administrator” in their team. The collaborators inform the administrator as soon as they know their day(s) of absence. The administrator announces this information via the ParkShare web application
