We are expanding our area in Binningen
Since October 2015, the Basel suburb of Binningen has been an integral part of our Catch-Car zone. After reducing our business area in January 2017, we can now expand our business area back to its original size as of 1 January 2019 thanks to the revised Parking Ordinance.
The Catch-Car zone in Binningen
If the place name sign would not stand between Basel and Binningen, one would not notice that one just crosses a municipal border and even a cantonal border. For this reason, the neighbouring communities are very important to us and an elementary part of our success story in Basel.
Blue is the new white
Thanks to the revised parking regulations and the adapted parking regulations, parking in Binningen will be easier and more uniform. The separation between the blue and white parking spaces is no longer necessary - all parking spaces are now coloured blue. This adaptation now enables Catch a Car members to park on all blue parking areas where parking with the residents' parking card is valid. The only exception is the cantonal road, which is the responsibility of the canton of Basel-Land and not the municipality of Binningen. The new regulations and ordinance will come into force on 1 January.
A win-win situation for all
With the expansion to the original business area, we are convinced that the situation will greatly improve for all parties involved. By adapting the zone, members who live in the soon "former white" area will be able to park their car even closer to them. This will unbundle the accumulations of vehicles that are created along today's borders. On the one hand, this is good news for Catch a Car, as the vehicles will be better distributed autonomously, and on the other hand for residents, because the downtimes of the vehicles will be reduced.
We wish you continued pleasure with Catch a Car and look forward to your feedback.
