34.
For a fun element on multi-storeys, have slides instead of stairs to get to the ground
33.
Have cave themes for underground car parks, with stalactities, stalagmites and trickling water
32.
Biomass on parking lot is greater than amount of emissions used to build and maintain parking lot
31.
All rain flows into channels that lead to plants
30.
Only hybrids can park there. Other vehicles should park outside of the downtown area...
29.
Pay by weight - the car drives over a weighbridge on the way in.
BMK
28.
Have specially trained birds that only crap on oversized gasguzzlers
BMK
27.
hang grape vine trellis over the cars. The vines make shade so cars don't get hot...no need for aircon when they leave. Also vines can produce fruit
BMK
26.
Offer discounts to drivers who carpool
25.
Ban larger vehicles or offer discounts to smaller "green" cars
24.
Covered parking - with hanging gardens growing on the roof.
23.
Use only evergreen trees and winter plants so that in winter times the parking lot is an escape from "city grey".
22.
On their entering and exiting the parking lot, ask drivers to fill out surveys asking how the lot can be improved.
21.
Use "rescued" trees and plants from development sites.
20.
Make the parking lot educational: have every type of common tree so that children can see what each looks like.
19.
You park on a car-sized platform with casters under it. Then the lot attendant pushes your car away into densely packed rows of cars (no need to leave room to open the doors). When you get to the checkout at the grocery store for example, you text a message or type a code into a console to let the attendants know you are coming. they get your car out and roll it to the front door so it is waiting for you. Less square footage required - lower costs and environmental impact. Great service too!
18.
elevators in the parkades do controlled freefall on the way down... and you pedal a bike to get back up
17.
cheaper rates for hybrids/ electric cars. SUV's should be overcharged. Car- poolers should be given discounts as well.
16.
Parking spots are open spaces which can be utilized to install solar arrays/ solar collecting plates under which cars can be parked. Bioreactors utilize sunlight for co2 capture and conversion, so these would be useful too. But the best way would be to make the lot vertical and limit the total land used.
15.
Create a competition so that all the parking lots within an area compete to find out which wins the award "most paradisal in the area".
14.
Encourage locals to plant trees in memory of dead relatives.
13.
Spray nice scents into cars when people leave.
12.
Divide the lot into zones and cover each zone with a different type of flower.
11.
On entering or exiting the parking lot, offer drivers free tap water.
10.
Instead of hard wooden seats, have soft comfortable seats - maybe some furniture. Have mats so that drivers can lie down.
9.
Broadcast relaxing sounds - bird song, waves, rain, running water etc.
8.
Have a super-cooled room where drivers can go to cool down quickly. If the parking facilities are near a shopping area then offer the service to shoppers too.
7.
At least have chia pets in normal parking lots to add life :)
6.
Make the parking lot look like a tennis grass court with the kind of surface and lines
5.
Offer a "massage you while we wash your car" service.
4.
Putting green style grass instead of pavement
3.
Fruit and berry trees for everyone to share.
2.
Really nice covered bike racks right by the entrance to the store. Perhaps with a separate stall and locking gate for each bike?
1.
Obvious one: a row of trees between the rows of cars. Lots of tall trees and you can park under them.
