Sustainable urban mobility

Intermodality as a fundamental axis at car parks

The city must be able to provide its citizens and visitors with a global offering of quality mobility services in the intermodality system among all means of transport. Mobility is a process and in certain trips it may envisage the combination of more than one mobility service.

Saba maintains agreements with numerous vehicle rental and sharing operators in different cities in Spain, the United Kingdom and Chile. These services comprise 2,450 parking spaces, taking advantage of Saba’s network capillarity, which enables the free-floating model, based on vehicles that may be collected and parked at any of these hubs.

The company is prepared for the growth of these services and its gradual progression towards electrification, in which experience has already accumulated with services for electric scooters and motorbikes. Saba also has experience with sharing operators with 100% electric vehicles, thanks to its new commercial policy that allows linked recharging. As with a private user, sharing companies may benefit from the same exclusive electric recharger reserve space system. These initiatives are the fruit of a constant effort to collaborate with car manufacturers and operators in the search for the best technological and commercial adaptability at their facilities.

Technological components, such as 3G coverage in all of the car parks, together with entrance, exit and payments through the registration plate system, favour the implementation of these value-added services, which seek to offer the best customer experience to their users.

Car parks enable cars to be hidden, facilitate efficient travel and in full coordination with the remaining means of transport, they contribute to reduce traffic agitation and emissions

The car parks can hide cars, facilitate efficient travel in full coordination with the remaining means of transport, in an intermodality system, contributes to reduce traffic agitation and the emissions.

Saba conceives its infrastructures as points of exchange of mobility on integrating all types of transport (bicycles, scooters, motorbikes and cars (whether they are personal or shared and, in many cases, they also exercise a fundamental role in intermodality with public transport (train stations/underground/bus/airports), taking advantage of their privileged situations.

The company and those that define the mobility policies must know how to adequately value the potential of “invisible” infrastructure, which have a prime location to favour a highly balanced sustainable mobility location between public and private transport.
