Motorway Parking Availability (MPA)
The objective of Motorway Parking Availability is to provide to truck drivers information on parking spaces, such as the location of parking lots, the number of their available spaces, vehicle types permitted to be parked, services provided in the parking lot, and associated rates, if the parking is secured or not.

CEIT is the service provider cooperating with Vitoria Transport Centre (CTV) on data exchange & management as well as information provision to professional drivers trough local App.
