Mobility hubs keep cities moving
In our 2020 Materiality Analysis, mobility is considered the second most material topic. Mobility hubs are busy places where travellers arrive and depart by different modes of transport, such as bicycle, car, train, or plane. Mobility hubs help urban areas to be accessible and liveable.

Q-Park wants to help customers complete their journey as conveniently as possible and a mobility hub is the place to provide additional services.

Parking facilities at mobility hubs enable people to switch transport mode to continue their journey by public transport.
Our proximity to alternative mobility options has increased by 44 in 2020. This is mainly due to improved data registration in our back-office systems. We now have 204 owned and long-leased Park+Ride (P+R) parking facilities (2019: 160) registered at or near major transport hubs.

By moving car parking from on-street to off-street, cities free up public space for pedestrians and cyclists. Many cities and towns now also wish to move bicycle parking off the streets too. We include bicycle parking in our renovation and new build plans wherever feasible.

In 2020, we have continued to add bicycle parking to our car parks. We now have 104 owned and long-leased parking facilities offering bicycle parking (2019: 94).

With our parking facilities at mobility hubs we contribute to SDG 9 and SDG 11.
