The city of Amsterdam renewed his contract with Egis for on-street parking until the end of December 2023.

Amsterdam municipality renewed his contract for the provision of parking services, carried by Egis. The contract was extended for a second time by 2 years until the end of December 2023. 

Egis mainly provides the following services:

  • On-street parking enforcement; 
  • Management of parking fines;
  • Maintenance of parking meters; 
  • Management of subscriptions for Amsterdam residents and claims management. 

In a few figures, this involves 250 people, 160,000 parking spaces under control, 2,500 parking meters maintained and 180,000 subscriptions managed.

The spontaneous payment rate in Amsterdam is now between 80% and 85% depending on the areas.

Amsterdam on-street parking enforcement system can be considered today as one of the world most advanced. This is in particular due to the use of special scanning cars that drive around the city payment areas in order to check license plates, limiting considerably the presence of parking agents walking on the street. The scanned plates, as well as the associated GPS data of the parked cars are sent from the car to the enforcement back office of the operator which remotely checks the existence of legitimate parking rights for each scanned license plate. The parking rights are daily checked in cooperation with the local authorities such as the Police and the City Tax service.

Egis is now deploying these services in a growing number of cities and countries in the world.
