Oberschleissheim, March 10, 2022 – Since the beginning of March 2022 parking permit stickers have been mandatory in all districts of Vienna. Prices and parking periods have been standardized for the whole city and the system has been simplified for citizens. This action is aimed at cutting car use in commuter traffic in half by 2030. Parking in the Austrian capital is now permitted only with an electronic parking permit or parking ticket. The former has been produced by Schreiner PrinTrust since 2015.
At that time Vienna launched the pilot phase for an electronic parking permit sticker. Together with the responsible municipal district office, Schreiner PrinTrust had developed the RFID parking chip required for on-street parking with which police officers have been able to automatically identify vehicles by using a corresponding reader ever since. The parking permit sticker enables easy reading from a distance of a few meters without line of sight.
The utilization of the sticker has paid off in recent years: the administrative effort for the city of Vienna, for inspectors, and for drivers has been reduced due to the electronic parking permit sticker based on Schreiner PrinTrust’s ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global. By rolling out the permit across the board the city is now taking this project to another level: “The extension of the parking sticker to all districts is a milestone achievement for climate protection and quality of life in our city,” says Vienna city council member of mobility Ulli Sima. “It reduces traffic, makes it easier for Vienna residents to find a parking place, plus we create more space for the people in our city.”
By the way, users do not have to worry about a cumbersome process of having to scratch off the parking permit sticker: once applied, it can no longer be removed from the windshield. Due to the modern RFID chip, the sticker can continue to be used after an owner has moved to another district or sold their car, because the chip allows for reading of multiple permit renewals issued to the same resident.
A success story that shows how high-tech products and climate protection can be combined and that may set an example for other cities to follow.
