How to create the right parking policy for your business?

Questions to ask (yourself) before creating a parking policy

  • How many employees will use the spaces?
  • What means of transport do employees use for their home-to-work journeys (car, bicycle, public transport, etc.)?
  • Is teleworking applied in your company? How often? And for whom?
  • Does your company have fleet vehicles? If so, how many?
  • Are there staff members with guaranteed access to the parking?
  • Do any of your staff have to travel during the working day?
  • Should you consider “visitor” access?
  • What access time would you like to offer for your parking?
  • If you have a reservation system, should priorities be set for certain employees (limited number of reservations, reservations to be made within a time limit?).
  • Depending on your corporate culture, will certain employees have priority access, or will everyone have the same type of access?
  • What are their habits in terms of mobility?
  • Is it possible for them to travel to the workplace using another mode of transport than the car?
  • Do they have specific needs? (People with physical disabilities, pregnant women, need to drop children off at school, …)
  • Once all this data is known, you will be able to define your parking policy according to your needs.
