It’s almost summer and everyone’s ready to get out there and explore the world beyond their backyard. That means that cities like yours will be getting visitors, and depending on your local attractions, possibly lots of them. But will all these new people, unfamiliar with your city and its nooks and crannies, be able to find somewhere to park?
No Worries, We Have Lots of Parking
Many cities don’t think they need help guiding visitors to available parking. In fact, they know they have ample parking and that it’s ready for anyone whose looking for it. The challenge is- can they find it? 1/3 of downtown traffic at any given time is looking for parking. And that doesn’t account for drivers unfamiliar with your city. No matter how well equipped your city is with parking lots, finding those spots can be a challenge all its own.
But It’s Full!
For some strange reason, people seem to be drawn to certain parking lots. Maybe it’s the prime location or the proximity to where they’re going. But drivers often all converge on the same lots, while others close by remain largely vacant. They insist that lots are full and there’s nowhere to park, while in fact there’s lots of parking right nearby. At Parking Logix, we help cities to guide drivers into empty parking spots and away from full ones. Our smart parking signs can let drivers know when lots are full and how many spots are available.
Our OpenSpace parking platform can be used for multiple lots, sending shared data across the cloud in real-time and sharing it with drivers any way you like. You can display customized signs with parking availability data at the entrance to your city, outside specific areas, or simply outside each parking lot or garage.
You can also share parking data right on your website using our API integration. And you can push that data to your city’s app as well or to the parking app of your choice.
Don’t let visitors to your city circle endlessly and think of your city as one that’s impossible to park in. Guide them to available spots even in your busiest, most popular areas with parking guidance that helps get them where they want to go faster. Best of all OpenSpace is affordable, wireless, and quick and simple to install.
