The City of Las Vegas is getting ready to upgrade its on-street parking system and it has turned to Parkeon to deliver the solution. Last year, the City released an RFP searching for multi-space meter technology that will improve customer service and make it easier for people to find and pay for parking downtown. Parkeon was chosen not only because of its experience but also because of its future vision.
As part of the new system, Parkeon will deliver more than 200 solar powered, wireless multi-space meters, most of them in Pay-by-Space configuration. Motorists will benefit from the ability to use either coins or credit cards, a receipt for proof of purchase, and “pay and go” convenience – no need to display the receipt on their dashboard. Seventy of the Parkeon meters will feature a 7” color screen, providing the customers with a very friendly user interface. This user interface will also allow the City the opportunity to offer services to customers in the future that go beyond parking.
Another convenience for the motorist will be a parking guidance solution, provided by ParkMe. The ParkMe app is available for iPhone and uses transaction from the Parkeon system to predict the best areas of the City for users to park.
Las Vegas will also be using the Parkeon system to help manage food truck parking. Meters will be setup in Pay-by-Plate configuration and enforced using Parkeon’s web based application that provides the status of each paid vehicle.
“Las Vegas is a perfect place for Parkeon to showcase new technologies,” said Jim Dufon, Vice President of Sales for Parkeon. “We are very honored to have been selected for this important project and we look forward to working closely with the City to develop innovative parking solutions.”
Parkeon will begin installation of the multi-space meters in June.
