Standardization of Descriptions

This page will be reviewed under three headings. Pricing,  Opening Hours and Max Stay Tables.

1- Pricing Table

1.1- Linear Price Increase

If there is a continuous linear price increase in the price table of a parking place, it would be mean to write multiple lines of price entries in aipark Studio-Pricing Table. So in order to represent the data in a more clear way “(‘amount’ for each additional ‘duration’)” format needs to be used. 

For example;

On the right side of the price table, first 30min. is free then each additional 30min. is 1,00€.

Instead of writing nine lines, (1,00€ for each additional 30min.) description needs to be used in the second price information line. 




In the end, data will be represented clearly.

For example;

in the original price table first 30 minutes cost 0.50€, after that every hour costs 1,00€. That example can be used in order to represent the data in a better and more clear way;

as in the example above, it is clear that first 30 minutes cost 0.50€ then after 30 min, every hour costs 1,00€. It is not only more clear but also in machine-readable format.


Possible alternatives;

(1,00€ for each additional hour), (0,50€ for each additional 30min.), (2,00€ for each additional hour)

1.2- With BahnCard

Mostly used in Park&Ride places or park places which are next to train stations. Defines a discount price for Deutsche Bahn Customers.

For example;

1.3- Night Tariff

Defines the price of the car parking for one night. Start and end time must be specified in the time table.

For example;

1.4- Customer & Audience Prices

Customer & Audience price description mostly used for a shopping mall park places or theaters. Some of them have a discounted price for their customers & audiences. If that is the case, (Customer price) or (Free for customers) description needs to be used. 

Possible alternatives;

(Theater audience price), (Cinema audience price), (Hospital patience price)

For example;

1.5- Minimum Duration

Some park places offer some discounts when drivers purchase a long-term parking ticket. If that is the case, (min. ‘duration amount’) description needs to be used.

Possible alternatives;

(min. 3 months), (min. 1 month), (min. 1 week)

For example;

1.6- Lost of Park Card

Some park places inform drivers that if they lose their park card, there is an amount needs to be paid. Mostly 1-day amount. If that is the case, (Lost of park card) description needs to be used.

For example;

1.7- Persons with Disabilities

There may have some discounts for people who have some disabilities. If that is the case then (Persons with Disabilities) description needs to be used.

1.8- Payment Time Restrictions

In some park places, drivers cannot make a payment for 24 hours. If that is the case, (Payment should be made between ‘time’ and ‘time’) or (Payment should be made before ‘time’) description needs to be used. 

1.9- Various Price Policy for Different Capacities

Some parking areas use different price policy for different capacities. For example; the total capacity of the parking lot can be divided into 2, and one of these parts can only be used for the monthly parking and the other is only for hourly parking. If that is the case, please activate the ‘Advanced’ button on the right side of the Pricing Table, fill the ‘Price in Cent’ and ‘Interval’ cells then write the corresponding number of the parking area on the ‘Description’ cell.

Ps. There are  ‘Price Description’ and ‘Description’ cells in Price Table. Please use ‘Description’ cell.

1.10- Valet Parking – Self Parking

Some parking garages offer valet parking with an additional cost. If that is the case, self parking and valet parking prices need to be distinguished from each other with  ‘(Valet Parking)’ and ‘(Self Parking)’ descriptions.

2- Opening Hours Table

2.1- Exit Time

Some park places do not work 24 hours. There are 2 possibilities to define exit time; drivers can exit at any time or restrictions on exit time. If these are the cases, (Exit possible at any time) or (Exit possible until ‘time’) description needs to be used.

For example;

2.2- Special Time for Events

There are some exhibition park places that open only for events. If that is the case,  (Open for big events) description needs to be used.

3- Max Stay Table

3.1- Parkscheibe (Parking Disc)

If there is a parking time restriction and ‘die parkscheibe’ has to be used during the parking time then (Parking disk is mandatory) description needs to be used.
