ExpressPark Would Tell Downtowners Where to Park And How Much to Pay

New, 13 comments

It is still on? Our parking spaces are set to become sentient sometime in 2011, according to PublicCEO.com. ExpressPark is the parking portion of Metro's congestion pricing project, and if and when it happens we'll have real time data about parking availability and congestion pricing at meters. Blogdowntown reported last year that 5,500 street spaces and 7,500 garage spaces downtown will be affected by the program, and that parking availability will show up on large informational signs already installed and "smaller block-level signs that will provide directions based on data from sensors embedded in the streets." Meter pricing will at first adjust based on time of day or length of parking, but could eventually be based on the real time data. Blogdowntown says the goals is to maintain 70-90% capacity.
