If you do not want to leave your car parked on the street a parking guidance system will help you find a garage quickly and without too much effort. Electronic technology is used to guide drivers to the nearest and most convenient garages and Park & Ride facilities. Dynamic displays provide information on the nearest garages and available spaces.
