Parking Availability Technology Pilot
DOT 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. DOT is embedding sensors in 177 parking spots along Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street in the Bronx that can detect whether a parking space is vacant. If successful, the 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.
