Parking Availability Technology Pilot

New York City's Department Of Transportation is partnering with three tech firms to launch the Parking Availability Technology pilot, testing state-of-the-art equipment that will wirelessly transmit real-time parking information to users.

Yet, it is unknown if the sensors can survive the rain, snow and wear and tear of these streets.  The following next two months will be a test phase.

If it works drivers looking for a spot near 187th Street and Arthur Avenue will be able to log online by the summer to see what spots are open.

This pilot has the potential to ease congestion by giving information on how many spaces are available on a particular block, reducing the amount of time spent cruising for a spot. The sensors are provided by ACS, IPsens and Streetline at no cost to the City.
