Finding parking in downtown is expected to become much easier with one of the City’s new parking apps.
ParkMe will pinpoint available parking on its mobile application. The app will use new smart meter sensors to track on-street availability.
We wrote about the process of implementing the smart meter system earlier this month. Once the meters and sensors have been installed at each of the 1,000 spaces the mobile application will go live.
ParkMe currently provides limited pricing information on some lots and garages downtown.
This is what ParkMe looks like in Santa Monica, CA, where smart meter technology is already in use.
A second application, ParkMobile will also be available to pay for parking from your phone.
