ParkMe, Parkeon Partner to Provide Free, Real-Time Parking Solutions
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, space turnover, rates, time of day, day of week, and a complex series of proprietary algorithms. This system also can help cities adjust parking policies to ensure the proper on-street occupancy level.
The City of Austin, TX, was the first Parkeon client to launch the new system, using data from more than 700 of its multi-space meters deployed around the city.
“Together with Parkeon, we have worked with the city of Austin to provide free and useful data to ease parking problems for its residents,” said Alex Israel, ParkMe’s Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer.
