If you manage or operate city parking lots, you may be left scratching your head wondering why certain lots are always full while others have spots that sit empty no matter what. What if there was an easy way to fill those spots to maximize your parking resource and increase revenue?
Empty spots don’t benefit anyone. Not the people who are out there looking for parking and certainly not lot owners and operators. And spots aren’t just empty because nobody needs them. Parking lots often have unused parking spots despite congestion on local roads from people looking for parking. But no one can find your spots if they don’t know they’re there.
Parking guidance systems keep track of available spots using sensors to track vehicles. They then let people know spots are available via digital signs, apps, and city websites. But if you’re installing a sensor in each and every spot, it can take a while to earn back the high cost you spend on buying and installing these typically cost-prohibitive systems.
At Parking Logix, our OpenSpace parking counting system is completely wireless and plug-n-play. Sensors are installed at entry and exit points inside speed humps, instead of in every spot, without compromising on the accuracy you need for effective parking counting. There’s no need for digging or complicated installation. This cuts the cost of your investment drastically, offering a remarkably affordable way to guide parkers into spots.
The data that parking guidance systems like OpenSpace offer you gives you another budgetary benefit. Once you know how much of your lot is being used regularly, you can make better informed decisions about how many monthly permits you can sell and when parking prices should be adjusted based on demand, once again maximizing the revenue your lot generates.
Parking guidance results in happy customers, who can park quickly instead of wasting time circling local roads. Happy customers are repeat customers- another boost to your lot’s bottom line.
Installing OpenSpace in your lot not only offers a fabulous return on investment, it keeps your lot producing revenue consistently and simply by making the most of the resource you already have.
