Tourism and leisure: sea, mountains and territories

Seaside resort, ski resort, places of art or history, places of scientific discoveries… the tourist sites are protean but present common problems in terms of parking.

The parking problems at these tourist sites are partly classic, with:
  • standard issues for city center users: saturation (real or perceived) of the road network, but off-road availability (underoccupied private car parks, poorly marked, poorly positioned ground parks, etc.);
  • the importance of the attractiveness of the site, which is the condition of its maintenance in activity.
However, they have specific characteristics such as:
  • the presence of seasonal employees;
  • peaks in visitor numbers during school holidays;
  • a request for visitors either by the day or by the week (from Saturday to Saturday);
  • adapted mobility management with temporary services in season: opening of auxiliary car parks, pricing, shuttles to connect distant car parks, etc.;
  • the presence of snow for ski resorts: degradation of urban facilities, taking into account the size of snowplows, management of snowdrifts, modification of ground level between summer and winter = "disappearance" of urban furniture that has not been cleared of snow.

Content of the missions

Sareco's intervention generally consists for these sites of:
  • estimate useful parking capacities, in and out of season,
  • define management methods by type of user (permanent residents, secondary residents, commuters , tourists)
  • organize the terms of variation of the parking offer, in quantity, regulations or price;
  • provide for the reception of specific requests: motorhomes, bicycles, events, etc.

Stadium or convention center type facilities have a low overall utilization rate but generate significant one-off demands.

Seaside resort, ski resort, places of art or history, places of scientific discoveries… the tourist sites are protean but present common problems in terms of parking .

Parking is a major issue for shopping centers because they have a large catchment area. In addition, for the centers on the outskirts of the city or for bulky or heavy purchases (weekly shopping, for example), customers come mainly by car.

The evolution of hospital practices tends to densify hospital sites, often to the detriment of surface car parks, which requires a global approach to travel in order to correctly estimate parking needs over time.

Sareco very regularly carries out missions on parking and travel in social neighborhoods, in particular within the framework of the National Urban Renovation Plans (PNRU).
