Parking solution adapted to your needs 

If you are constantly looking for a parking space, you must certainly be interested in shared parking. The principle is simple, it allows you to reserve or rent your parking space for the day, week or month. 

Shared parking has many advantages, especially if you are looking for a long-term parking space at an affordable price. These private car parks are owned by owners who do not use them continuously and are therefore looking to make the most of their space, and are more secure than public car parks, which is not negligible. 

In addition, users interested in this process will be able to directly subscribe to a parking space online and then, thanks to a mobile application, they will be able to open the barrier to access the car park.
