Questions & answers about commuter parking
Commuter parking is an important part of the amenities provided by Bane NOR for train passengers, and is reserved for commuters with a valid period ticket for trains.
Car parks are are free at many stations in Norway, and unregulated in the sense that anyone who wants to use them can do so. We cannot control who uses these car parks, and do not know how many users are passengers/commuters. By regulating car parks at a station and providing commuter parking, we ensure that only rail commuters park there at peak hours/working hours, i.e. between 05.00 - 17.00 on weekdays.
Commuter parking is an important part of the amenities provided by Bane NOR for train passengers, and is reserved for commuters with a valid period ticket for trains. There is a modest charge for using commuter parking. The usual price is NOK 100 per 30-day period, and NOK 35 per week.
One important reason why we charge for commuter parking is that we only have a limited area available, and want to help ensure that commuters living near stations get there by some other form of transport rather than their car. By doing so, parking spaces are freed up for passengers who really need to drive to a station.
Parking spaces allocated for commuter parking are free of charge from 17.00 to 05.00 on weekdays and at weekends (from Friday at 17.00 to Monday at 05.00).
One-day parking is priced for a 24-hour period (24/7).
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee that everyone who has purchased a parking pass will be able to find a space on a commuter car park at any given time. What we offer to the commuter is the right to use the spaces available on a commuter car park at any given time.
Commuter parking at a station is dimensioned in principle to cover the parking needs of passengers using the station. But in many instances, we do not have enough space to cover 100% of demand. Our objective is to provide enough space for everyone who needs to park, but we cannot guarantee that there will always be sufficient space. If commuter parking is full, we refer motorists to municipal or private car parks nearby.
No, we intend to introduce commuter parking primarily at stations where it is often difficult to find a parking space. Commuter parking will be introduced first at the stations where it will have the greatest effect.
You can park your car on a commuter car park for as long as you have a valid parking pass.
You need a separate parking pass for covered car parks, which can be found in the P-app as one of three options.
Neither Bane NOR nor the parking company store information about your car registration number, your customer relationship with NSB or your car. But the system will register that you have a valid parking pass linked to your car’s registration number. This only allows the parking company to see if you have a valid commuter parking pass or not.
In many places it is not physically possible to expand a car park due to other buildings, or because Bane NOR has no space available. Space is in particularly short supply in the central Eastern region. What’s more, we have stated publicly our intention of contributing to the goal of zero growth in car traffic in and around cities.
We have introduced a ‘City Price’ at stations where there is a severe shortage of parking space of NOK 250 per 30-day period. It has already been introduced at Lillestrøm, Drammen, Asker, Høn, Vakås, Hvalstad, Billingstad, Slependen, Blommenholm, Høvik, Stabekk, Strømmen, Lørenskog, Grorud, Høybråten, Kjelsås, Ljan, Lysaker and Ski stations.
We have found that a higher parking price causes demand for car parking space to be reduced. That’s because more passengers choose to bike, walk or use public transport to get to the station, and because commuters who can choose between several stations would rather pay less for parking and where capacity is higher.
Stations where we introduce City Price are often in the city centre, and have limited parking capacity with high demand.
If you have bought City Price for commuter parking, you can park on all Bane NOR’s commuter car parks.
No, any increase in cost is so little that we do not believe that will happen. Parking at the station is still inexpensive.
