Parking has an ever-increasing impact on public spaces and on the social and political agenda of municipalities world wide. Effective parking policy is vital to ensuring that the built environment in which people live and work is pleasant and remains an attractive location for businesses. While rising costs and revenues also mean that the financial dimensions of parking policy also have a greater impact on municipal budgets.
After all, before parking places can generate revenue, they first have to be created or built, and then managed and operated. Besides the municipalities themselves there are many other stakeholders involved who have their own interests to pursue. All of which adds to the complexity surrounding finding solutions to the parking issue. Something which makes it all the more remarkable that political and organisational decisions about parking are often largely based on perceptions and emotional judgements.
By contrast, the Parkius digital parking solution presents hard data in accessible web-based reports. This provides policymakers with more insight into parking demand and problems in existing parking facilities. Managers and team leaders receive continual feedback on the results of their policy. And because this data is increasingly available in real time, they can also tailor their activities much more accurately in line with the actual traffic situation.
