APCOA PARKING in Denmark recently took over Onepark which was formerly know as 'Per Lyngbak Nielsen'. Onepark managed over 30,000 parking spaces in Denmark.

The fusion combines the strong characteristics of both companies. Thanks to the financial strength of the APCOA PARKING Group, this acquisition will provide an extension of possibilities for further investments and parking activities.

Both APCOA PARKING and OnePark see a great opportunity in this fusion, to significantly improve the service for both consumer and parking owners. This can only be done by combining the best knowledge, parking systems and experience in parking activities of both companies.

Women are better drivers than men

/en/latest-news/article/?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=2229&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=0e1ef5bc5dcda678d63acb6291ceb2a7

An investigation by Ivox on behalf of Mercedes-Benz shows that women are better drivers than men. Women are more careful and more attentive behind the wheel which makes them better drivers.

Less accidents

The research shows that 35% of Belgian men have been involved at least twice in a car accident. This is only 19% for women. In addition, 28% of women would have never had a traffic accident. For men, it would be 21%.

One of the reasons for the accidents would be the lack of vigilance. For example, 37% of men admitted that they once fell asleep behind the wheel. For women the percentage is much lower: 18%.

Safety has priority

Notwithstanding, women still underestimate their driving skills and parking skills. For example, 39% admits that men can park better and 18% are even convinced that men can drive better in general.

APCOA opens two new car parks in one week

/en/latest-news/article/?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=2226&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=8aae0361ac7018629f426e75afbb5c83

A historic moment because APCOA has opened two new car parks in Jette and Vilvoorde in the week of 16 April 2018.

Jette

The new underground car park is located under the Koningin Astridplein. The car park ensures that there are sufficient parking spaces (199) in the center of Jette. In addition, the square will be completely car-free and the "Mirror" square will thus become a quiet but especially multifunctional square.

Thanks to the rate per minute, the customer never pays too much. Moreover, the first quarter is completely free.

Vilvoorde

In Vilvoorde the new car park was built under the "Grote Markt". This car park has space for 192 cars. The opening was festively celebrated because the residents of Vilvoorde were relieved that this will make the parking chaos on the "Grote Markt" disappear.
