The British Parking Association

The British Parking Association is the largest, most established and trusted professional association representing parking and traffic management in Europe. The BPA is the recognised authority within the parking profession and uses its influence to represent the best interests of the sector.
Our diverse membership community of around 700 organisations includes technology developers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, learning providers, consultants, structural & refurbishment experts, local authorities and parking on private land operators including retail parks, healthcare facilities, universities, airports and railways stations.
The BPA has launched a new, audited accreditation for organisations with facilities in the education sector, the Professionalism in Parking Accreditation (PiPA). PiPA recognises and celebrates the highest standards of professionalism in parking.
Organisations that hold PiPA are nationally recognised role-models for parking professionalism and excellence. PiPA celebrates the high standards that already exist, and the accreditation also helps to raise levels of customer service for patients, visitors and staff, increasing car-park user satisfaction and improving the reputation of healthcare landowners. This is an accreditation that will make your organisation proud.
We also provide an extensive range of membership services to support parking professionals & organisations in their day-to-day work and manage the Safer Parking Scheme, Disabled Parking Accreditation and Approved Operator Scheme.
