Streetline Launches Smart Parking App in Fort Worth's Sundance Square

Streetline, Inc. today announced that downtown Fort Worth has deployed its smart parking platform including its free smartphone app "Parker" giving the city's residents and visitors real-time insight for finding open parking spaces along West 4th Street in Sundance Square.
The new pilot program gives visitors to Sundance Square the ability to download Streetline's free app "Parker" onto their iPhone and see an instant map pinpointing sections of West 4th Street that have parking available with icons noting more than four spaces available (plenty of parking available), more than two spaces available (some parking), or less than two spaces available (limited parking). The app also delivers information about parking space time limits, pricing, and whether meters take credit cards or coins.  

"We are excited to introduce Streetline's 'Parker' app to the City of Fort Worth," said Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline. "As one of the fastest growing cities in America, we applaud the city's efforts to make life easier and more convenient for its residents and visitors. Implementing smart parking programs like Streetline's are a key step in creating more efficient, intelligent, and sustainable cities."

"Streetline's guided parking app 'Parker' is an invaluable service for visitors and residents to Fort Worth's Sundance Square," said Peter Elliott, Fort Worth Parking Manager. "We want  to progressively minimize and eventually eliminate the hassle of finding parking, and advanced technologies like Streetline's are a key part of our ongoing efforts to understand the application of the latest parking technology to make Fort Worth one of the most livable cities in the nation."

The "Parker" app is based on Streetline's patented smart parking platform that detects the presence of a car through a network of ultra-low power wireless sensors located in each parking space. This information can be easily transmitted back to smartphones and web applications that give drivers a live, accurate picture of open parking spaces across the city. The innovative new smart city system helps cities, airports, universities and private organizations reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and alleviate the environmental impact of traffic caused by drivers circling the block while they look for parking.

Fort Worth hosts more than 5.5 million visitors each year. Downtown Fort Worth is less than 30 minutes from Cowboys Stadium and Texas Motor Speedway, and features more than 50 restaurants, offering everything from fine dining to casual fare as well as movie theatres, museums, art galleries, retail shops and specialty boutiques. Fort Worth has been widely recognized for its outstanding quality of life and was recently ranked as one of the nation's top 10 most livable cities.
