From May, all customers who shop in the local trade in Loulé can benefit from the first hour of free parking at the Loulé Parking, located next to the Municipal Library building.
The initiative results from a partnership between the Association of Merchants, Loulé Global Council, as the managing body of the Car Park, and the Municipality of Loulé. Thus, the benefit of the first hour of parking is borne by 50% by the municipal company and by 50% by the shop where the purchase is made. Each affiliated merchant will be able to offer the free one-hour parking voucher depending on the loyalty strategy of its customers.
It should be remembered that the Municipal Park of Loulé was recently renovated, being endowed with 259 places with better conditions of security and accessibility. The infrastructure has new technology, such as seat sensing and access through number plate reading, new lighting, as well as several innovations made for a better use experience. This parking silo is very close to several services and many houses of the local commerce of Loulé, being only 5 minutes walk from the center of the city. The Park is open on weekdays, from 8 am to 8 pm, and on Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm on the covered floor. Upstairs, it operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
According to the leaders of Loulé Global Council, this initiative also aims to reduce traffic in Loulé since 20% of the vehicles traveling in the central streets of the city are usually drivers' vehicles that are looking for parking space. "Parking in the Municipal Parking Lot of Loulé is the best option to avoid looking for places on the public highway. It is more convenient, more economical, safer and more accessible for those who need to park in this city, "they say.
It should be noted that users of the Park can clarify doubts about the acquisition of these valleys as well as obtaining other information and services (obtaining of resident signs, parking signatures, urban transport schedules, among others) at the Loja Mobility, next to the Parking, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 6:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:30 p.m.
