St. Louis, MO (May 19, 2019) – Fybr has been selected by the City of Westerville, Ohio as their technology partner for a Smart Parking Pilot. The City is testing Smart Parking Space Availability Technology in the popular Uptown District to reduce traffic congestion and provide citizens with accurate, real-time information for finding open spaces in parking lots. City Manager David Collinsworth said, “If this is successful, we will extend it out to the bounds of parking lots in Uptown and then also our on-street parking.”

“We are excited to be a part of Westerville’s move to becoming a Smart City,” said Bob Glatz, CEO of Fybr. “Given our history with large-scale parking sensor deployments and recent expansion in Columbus, we are confident in our ability to meet or exceed the city’s expectations.”

Fybr’s smart parking sensors and applications allow drivers to find parking in real time and provide turn-by-turn directions to open spaces. The City will be testing the program over the next 14 months in four Uptown off-street parking lots. Fybr has completed the installation and testing will begin in late May.
