Parking at train stations in Switzerland is about to be facilitated. In mid-September 2014, Swiss Federal Railways launched an app that enables customers to pay for parking spaces and extend parking periods via their smartphone. The new P+Rail app came about following a successful cooperation with «park it». Swiss Federal Railways and «park it» co-developed this technology in order to manage P+Rail services and to meet customer needs. As a result, Swiss Federal Railways fully integrated the «park it» technology that is required to manage its P+Rail services. The new Swiss Federal Railways app makes it easier for passengers to take advantage of the P+Rail scheme. Since its launch 142 P+Rail facilities have been opened in Eastern Switzerland. Additional facilities will be opened in other regions. Passengers are able to pay for their parking space for a duration of up to seven consecutive days. It is also possible to use the mobile app to extend this period.
