After the longest break in the history of university life, schools are finally (for the most part) back up and running. But as you smooth out the wrinkles of new beginnings, is there a simple way you can help students and faculty park faster?
When you envisioned reopening, you probably thought of happy students chatting as they walked calmly to their classrooms. But lack of organized parking might have instead morphed into students running to class at breakneck speeds after they finally found somewhere to park. It’s time for parking change.
Without any organized parking infrastructure in place, the search for a spot can turn into havoc. With so many varied schedules and students coming and going throughout the day, your parking lots are constantly filling up. And when students have no idea where they may find a spot, you end up with traffic congestion on campus and disgruntled drivers looking everywhere for parking. Parking guidance can change all that. Parking counting systems like OpenSpace let students know exactly where they’ll find open spots. And which areas aren’t worth looking in.
Parking Data Where They Need it Most
OpenSpace keeps track of available spots through our unique parking technology. It uses smart sensors to keep track of parking usage. It keeps your campus parking organized and efficient. And how you share that data is completely up to you. Some universities choose to display availability data right at the campus entrance. Others use signs outside each lot. Some show how many spots are available while others only post when lots are full. But signs aren’t the only way you can share your parking data. Our robust API integration lets you push data right to your website as well as to a variety of parking apps.
Don’t leave students to navigate campus parking on their own. Give them the support they need to park faster and get to class sooner. OpenSpace can help you make that happen.
