From on-street to off-street parking - The Rotterdam approach

Traffic and demand management
Resource type

First published on 17 July 2019. 

Rotterdam's efforts to encourage people to use off-street parking is mainly achieved through pricing policies. The city is also reducing the number of on-street parking places allowing more public space to be used for people rather than parked cars. By 2020, 3,000 parking spaces should be removed from the inner city within the Park4SUMP project. Many of these spaces will be replaced with green spaces, walking areas, bike lanes and bicycle parking garages.
