Parking Awards

Q-Park wants to promote qualitative improvements in public car parking. And to this end, Q-Park participates in national and international parking award schemes.

The European Parking Award is organised by the European Parking Association (EPA) as a biennial award for excellence in parking. Prizes are awarded in each of the following categories:

  • Category 1 New parking structures

  • Category 2 Renovated parking structures

  • Category 3 Public space on-street parking projects

  • Category 4 Innovative schemes for off-street parking

  • Category 5 Marketing & communication

This ‘Oscar of the parking industry’ demonstrates the highest quality in these five categories. The EPA particularly values projects which make a contribution to parking policy, sustainable urban mobility plans and urban development. Q-Park has a strong history in the awards, dating back to 1999 and winning 17 EPA Awards to date.

Four of Q-Park’s projects were shortlisted for the combined 2021/2022 EPA awards. The shortlisted Q-Park projects were in two of the five EPA categories:

  • Category 2: Renovated car park

    • Conversion in Chartres, France

    • A city concept in Toulon, France

  • Category 4: Innovative project

    • Digital Partnerships – innovative mobility solutions, Belgium

    • Q-Park Park Lane Mobility Hub in London, UK

The winners were announced at the EPA congress in September 2022. Q-Park is delighted with the award in category 4 for the Digital partnerships based on APIs & URLs, won by Q-Park Belgium.
