Paris trials dial and park

Fédération Nationale des Métiers du Stationnement, an organization of French parking institutions, is this month launching a new service that will allow drivers in Paris to use their mobile phones and GPS navigation devices to check availablility of nearby parking spaces.
Frances two leading mobile network operators, Orange and SFR, along with Canal TP, NavX and V-Traffic, which specialise in travel and navigation software and also the consulting firms Setec and Carte Blanche Conseil, and New Technology for Citizens, a grouping of firms that provides travel services, are participating in the project.

Drivers will be able to use their mobile phones to find out whether a nearby garage is open and has places available. The new service aims to reduce congestion, since, according to François Le Vert, a representative of the France trials dial and park, at certain times of day, 20-25 per cent of vehicles are in search of a parking space. With this service, we should be able to improve the traffic flow," he said.
