We make parking easy
This integration provides parking guidance via smartphones, in-car navigation systems, and personal computers, with maps displaying the best places to find parking. In order to display parking occupancy information, ParkMe’s system combines real-time meter transaction data from the Parkeon system with historical occupancy information, parking space turnover, rates, the time of day, day of week and a complex series of proprietary algorithms.
In addition to helping motorists find parking, this system can help cities adjust their parking policies to ensure the proper occupancy level on the street.
By guiding motorists to the most available parking areas, cities not only ensure a higher level of driver satisfaction, but they also help reduce their environmental footprint. When drivers find their parking spaces more quickly, there is less circling around the block, leading to fewer carbon emissions released into the atmosphere and less oil used in the process. Traffic in cities is improved as well, opening up lanes for other motorists and buses.
