Milton Keynes Council goes live with Smart Parking’s SmartPark solution. The aim of the trial is to highlight how the company’s technology can transform the parking experience for drivers in a key off-street parking location within the city.
Park, pay and walk away
300 of Smart Parking’s RFID equipped SmartEye vehicle detection sensors, linked via SmartLink data transmitters into the company’s SmartRep management application, have been installed at the B4-1 Car Park on South Second Street. The deployment enables car park users to enter the barrierless car park, pay, and walk away, with no need to return to their vehicle to display a ticket.
The deployment at Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, UK includes our SmartApp, Smart Parking’s app for iPhone and Android that enables drivers to check the number of available spaces in the location before they leave home.
The company will also use SmartRep software to provide trend analysis to the Council to maximise the effectiveness of management decisions and assist them in formulating long term transport strategies.
Transforming off-street parking
Councillor Mat Clifton, Cabinet Member responsible for Economic Growth and Inward Investment said:“Milton Keynes Council is looking at a number of initiatives to make parking easier for people in Central Milton Keynes and the parking bay sensor pilot scheme is an example of this.”
“We hope that this trial will show that by implementing this new technology finding a parking space will be easier for people visiting the city centre.”
Paul Gillespie said that the trial with Milton Keynes would highlight the value of this technology to councils operating off-street car parking.
“Our technology makes parking off-street easy and quick. We’re very happy to be working with Milton Keynes on this trial, and we are confident that drivers into Milton Keynes who use this car park will appreciate the difference.”
