The Future of Parking is Here.
Parking is a $25 billion industry that’s seen little innovation in decades. While there has been a great deal of investment in creating energy-efficient hybrid and electric vehicles, this still doesn’t solve the problem of global gridlock. A car is a car — even if electric — it still causes the same burden on urban gridlock that gas-powered cars do … and the need to park still exists.
“The global gridlock crisis will “stifle economic growth and our ability to deliver food and healthcare…[and] our quality of life will be significantly compromised.”
– Bill Ford, Executive Chairman, Ford Motor Company
At the 2011 Intelligent Transportation World Congress in Orlando, Florida, Bill Ford shared his vision of a future where all cars are connected and speak to each other. He pictures a future where people can reserve a parking spot at their destination and be automatically directed to the quickest route based on real-time data being sent by the cars driving in front of them.
At Streetline, we share that vision, beginning with parking. We are helping to build a Smart Parking Ecosystem that integrates all the key players in the system: from motorists to parking lots and meters to the merchants and cities — even universities, airports, and shopping centers. Managing the true supply and demand of parking will enable cities and motorists to make smart transportation decisions.
To make Smart Parking a reality, Streetline brings together all aspects of parking management technology in one integrated system — from street-level sensors to mobile apps, analytics and system management software — so that you can truly understand and manage your city’s parking to make changes for the better.
