To ensure that Park&Ride facilities are used following their designated use, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG and the province of Lower Austria have developed a modern, up-to-date access system.

At the same time, this ensures that sufficient parking spaces are available exclusively for public transport users so that they can easily and quickly change to the environmentally friendly train. This new system will start operating at Mödling station and the parking deck in Wiener Neustadt with an entrance and exit in Haidbrunngasse following Monday, 14 November. The project was implemented by ÖBB, the province of Lower Austria, and the municipalities. 

Exit with the code on the ticket

For commuters, the usual journey to the Park&Ride facility will change as little as possible. That is why an innovative access system without barriers is being used. The licence plate number of the car entering the facility is automatically recorded by a camera. When a car leaves the Park & Ride facility, another camera registers that the same car wants to leave the facility again.

Only now does the driver have to take action and read a valid ticket using a code on the scanner at the exit column. By linking the licence plate number and the ticket, the system recognises whether the parking is authorised, and a green light signals the exit. 

If you have a permanent ticket, e.g., a weekly, monthly or annual pass, you have the advantage that you only have to scan the ticket when you first exit. The parking authorisation is then stored for the duration of the validity period of the permanent ticket. The traffic light immediately switches to green. Valid tickets are public transport tickets with a code, e.g., single tickets and season tickets such as weekly, monthly or annual tickets, as well as the ÖBB Österreichcard and the Klimaticket. Printed tickets can be scanned the same way as digital tickets, the so-called Handy-Ticket.

Barrier-free and uncomplicated

This barrier-free system was successfully tested in a pilot project in St. Valentin. Now it is being rolled out continuously, primarily to the heavily frequented Park&Ride facilities and parking decks in Vienna's environs. An expansion to a total of 21 locations is planned for this year. 

Innovation partnership between ÖBB and the Province of Lower Austria 

Together with the province of Lower Austria, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG is developing various services for Park & Ride facilities amid the innovation partnership. These include real-time information on the utilisation of P&R in route planner apps as well as the verification of the so-called use in conformity with the zoning by developing and installing access systems, as is now being used at Baden station. In addition, services intended to make it even easier for customers to switch to the train are being tested. It includes, for example, booking selected parking spaces at Park & Ride facilities.
