Wrapping Up & Prepping Ahead
The school year is over, the angst and challenges of the year are behind you, and summer lies ahead. Your student body and faculty probably exhaled a collective sigh of relief at the completion of another year with all it held. But if you work in college administration and parking, your long awaited break probably can’t begin until you do some prep to make next year an even better one. And parking guidance may be key to making that happen.
Small Investment, Huge Dividends
Parking on college campuses is notoriously difficult. People come and go at all times and the proverbial rush hour can seem never ending. You may have heard of parking guidance. Chances are you have seen signs outside parking lots showing current availability. But did you know that a complete system for your college can start at under 7k with Parking Logix? A similar system with a traditional provider would cost more than 3x the price!
Helping students find parking faster gets them into class on time, and more calm and prepared to learn. For many universities, OpenSpace by Parking Logix helps eliminate potential parking chaos. It also helps colleges to maximize their parking spaces. At Illinois State University, OpenSpace was used in all 3 student garages with driver feedback signs at entry points to let students know how many spots are available before they enter.
A Better 2020
You can start the new school year with a simple way to keep traffic moving smoothly and students and faculty parking quickly. The OpenSpace parking platform is plug’n’play so you don’t have to spend your summer overseeing construction crews installing sensors in each spot. It’s ready to use right out of the box. Data can be seen on signs, your website, or parking apps so that students always know where and when parking is available. It’s smart parking for a better year ahead.
