Technology for Predictable Parking in Columbus
WBNS Channel 10 Report (September 16, 2019) -Columbus, Ohio is one of the toughest places to find parking, but Columbus city leaders want to change the traffic headache that some find when they are in the Short North.
The City is testing vehicle detection sensors designed to add predictability to parking. The technology identifies parking space availability in real-time and is said to cut down on excess traffic. Matt Hubeck, Fybr’s Vice President of Operations said, “Studies show that about thirty percent of people driving around, are looking for a place to park. So getting that thirty percent of traffic off the road and into their parking spaces as fast as possible is a big advantage for everybody.”
If successful, the technology being tested could integrate with the City’s ParkColumbus mobile payment app (powered by ParkMobile) in the future.
