Ample parking in centre of Stavanger. Report contradicts motorists’ misconceptions. A new survey conducted on behalf of Stavanger Sentrum AS (STAS) by the Barometer market analysis company shows that there are plenty of spaces available. According to Rogalands Avis, the report shows that the rumours about there not being enough parking are unfounded. “Most come to the centre of town in their own car. 70 percent said that they found a space the last time they drove in almost immediately. 11 percent had to wait a maximum of five minutes”, Sissel Medby, Barometer’s general manager tells the paper.

A new survey conducted on behalf of Stavanger Sentrum AS (STAS) by the Barometer market analysis company shows that there are plenty of spaces available. According to Rogalands Avis, the report shows that the rumours about there not being enough parking are unfounded.

“Most come to the centre of town in their own car. 70 percent said that they found a space the last time they drove in almost immediately. 11 percent had to wait a maximum of five minutes”, Sissel Medby, Barometer’s general manager tells the paper.

She blames the speculations on the media, but STAS’ managing director Karl Jan Søyland thinks it’s because they are not good enough at informing people of the possibilities.

But whatever the reason, the large shopping centres outside town are the winners. People would rather drive there because of the ample parking facilities available.

They hope that Wednesday’s results will help draw more people to the centre instead.
