Drive to the outskirts of a city, leave your car in a car park and transfer to underground or suburban trains to ride into the city centre. This is how Park and Ride works - a practical option for car drivers. Park and Ride schemes are designed to prevent congestion in the city centres and come with the added benefit of saving costs and time for motorists. But like everything else in Europe, the schemes vary considerably in the different countries as regards their name, signposting and pricing.
Together with 18 European partner clubs German automobile club ADAC had a closer look at Park and Ride facilities in the framework of the EuroTest programme.
