What is Park & Ride?

Published on

Park & Ride car parks are located near train or metro stations to make it easy for passengers to take the train.

Today there are more than 20,000 spaces that meet the Ile-de-France Mobilités quality of service criteria, in the 73 Park & Ride locations in service.

Thanks to the investment programme initiated by Ile-de-France Mobilités in 2016, more than 11,000 spaces have been financed. By the end of 2021, around 24,000 spaces will be available in the region's quality certified Park & Rides.

Since 1 March 2019, Ile-de-France Mobilités has covered the fee for certified parking spaces at stations for holders of the Navigo Annual pass. This system will be extended in 2021 and will apply to holders of the Navigo Annual, Navigo Annual Senior and Imagine'R passes for their car, motorbike or bicycle.

From the beginning of 2021, the system will be available in 29 Park & Rides, nearly 8,000 eligible parking spaces. By the end of 2022, around 5,000 additional spaces will be integrated into the system.
