What does the environment have to do with parking?
Most hospitals and medical centers make it a goal to be conscious of the environment. And many have issues with patients and employees circling for parking spots and struggling to find them. But how are the two connected? And how can parking guidance help?
Are Parkers Really Wasting That Much Fuel?
When drivers circle looking for somewhere to park, they’re wasting more than just time. The emissions their vehicles give off are unnecessary- and not only waste fuel but pollute the environment and affect air quality too. But how much fuel is actually wasted just by looking for a spot? Surprisingly, quite a lot. The average driver spending 17 hours a year, and much more than that in some cities, looking for a spot. That translates into a whole lot of extra fuel in the air.
How Can Parking Guidance Help?
Parking counting systems like OpenSpace help people avoid the wasted time and fuel of searching for parking. OpenSpace keeps track of how many spots are available in each of your lots in real time via smart sensors. That data can then be shared with patients and parkers in a variety of ways. LED signage outside lots keep them informed. Moreover, you can give them access to that data via parking apps and your website.
