We develop bespoke solutions in all client segments (cities, airports, hospitals, shopping centres, train stations, leisure and event spaces, universities, etc.).
From the construction of off-street car park franchises to the innovations of the smart city, we have kept ahead of the trends to make intelligent mobility a reality which is adapted to the meet the challenges of the future.
To meet each person’s needs and address the challenges of cities, we provide innovative solutions which complement the car: shared bicycles, electric scooters, etc.
Faced with a growing need for parking in the cities, Indigo, known as GTM at the time, inaugurated its first ‘concession model’ car park in 1964, under the Esplanade des Invalides. Followed by Georges V, Malesherbes-Anjou and more.
Paris became Indigo’s innovation laboratory. With the development of off-street car parks and on-street parking, toll systems were automated, and electronic payment options were introduced. Through the use of the Carte Bleue (a debit card payment system widely used in France). GTM and Sogeparc exported their knowledge all over the world.
Offering more than a parking space
The car park, once a single-use space, became a place offering a variety of services. With individual mobility services, loans of umbrellas, bicycles, and shopping bags, 21st century parking took shape and became a link to urban mobility. In 2001, GTM and Sogeparc merged to create VINCI Park, which relied on the basics (quality, security, and customer service) to attract users.
The digital and soft mobility era
In 2015, VINCI Park became Indigo and positioned itself as a key player in parking and individual mobility, with a new digital service.
To meet these new expectations, Indigo launches Indigo Neo, an application that offers the drivers a complete parking experience that allows them to find and book the best space at the best price. This new seamless service simplifies and facilitates the user journey thanks to the licence plate recognition and digitalised on-street payment.
In 2017, to meet the challenges of growing urbanisation and changes in usage, INDIGO is rolling out INDIGO Weel, a shared bicycle and electric scooter service in France. At the same time, the company becomes the majority shareholder of Smovengo, a group of mobility players that wins the tender to operate the Parisian Vélib’s. In 2018, Smovengo launches the new Vélib’ 2 offer with an expanded scope of operation.
A key player in the sustainable development of cities
On 28 February 2020, INDIGO presents with the architect Dominique Perrault to more than 80 journalists, officials and city planners the Parking of the Future, a new vision of underground spaces and their integration in the city of tomorrow, following more than a year of partnership. How can we extend the opportunities that the underground can offer? How can we provide more mobility and services to users? How can we facilitate urban logistics or feed the sustainable city? The car park of the future offers a real programme of concrete solutions to be implemented in the INDIGO car parks. Find out more.
The year 2020 will be a year marked by the emergence and spread of the COVID-19 virus. To show its solidarity, INDIGO and Indigo Neo offer parking to all medical staff during the two periods of confinement in France. In the first wave, 185,000 hours of parking were offered. On the other hand, to help its employees faced with difficulties linked to the virus crisis, the group set up a solidarity fund in which more than 200 managerial staff participated.
Finally, this new era is opening up under the sign of sustainable development. INDIGO, a real player with a positive impact in cities and territories, is committed to a Climate strategy up for 2025
The expectations of our stakeholders, employees, and clients (local authorities and private), and of city-dwellers in general, are evolving. This prompted us to ask the question: “What role does our Group want to play in its business environment, both now and in the future?”. In answering this question, we came to define INDIGO Group’s corporate purpose:
“Opening space for peaceful city motion”
This purpose statement guides our employees’ actions every day and has transformed our company’s long-term strategic vision.
