Sarasota, FL Partners with Flowbird to Expand Smart Parking System

Sarasota, FL Partners with Flowbird to Expand Smart Parking System

 

 

Successful launch leads to phase 2 of pay-by-plate installations

 

 

Moorestown, New Jersey — The City of Sarasota has once again partnered with Flowbird Group, the world’s leader in curbside management and urban mobility solutions, to expand the new paid parking system after a successful launch earlier this year. Forty-three (43) CWT Color Touch multi-space kiosks have begun installation along both Main Street and Palm Avenue, two of the busiest streets in Downtown Sarasota.

 

The Sarasota City Commission voted to move toward a paid parking strategy in 2016 that recommended adding parking meters downtown. The strategy put forth the goal to improve circulation in prime spots in front of businesses and decrease traffic congestion associated with drivers circulating to find a space. In November of 2018, the City installed 40 of Flowbird’s CWT Color Touch pay-by-plate kiosks along St. Armand’s Circle, a prime shopping and dining district that attracts hundreds of patrons daily. The City is now moving forward with expanding the pay-by-plate system to Sarasota’s downtown business district.

 

According to Mark Lyons, City of Sarasota Parking Manager, the newest installation of CWT pay-by-plate kiosks will help keep spots open for valuable customers patronizing downtown businesses. By implementing a paid parking system in one of the busiest business districts, customers have the option to pay for the most convenient parking spaces, while also having the option to park for free on side streets or for a lower price in the downtown garages.

 

“We think what it will do is improve accessibility and turnover in those areas which actually puts more footsteps on the sidewalks and makes it easier for those people who need that close accessibility to find parking spaces,” said Lyons.

 

The Flowbird CWT Touch kiosks, voted on by the Sarasota community, have a user-friendly design with a clear screen display, descriptive messages and enhanced visibility in sunlight. The kiosks function off of solar-powered panels and feature a large full-color touch screen interface similar to a tablet.Motorists simply type in their license plate number, choose their parking duration, and use a credit card, coins, or the City’s convenient mobile app to pay.

 

“At this stage of the game, most people get how to use these parking kiosks,” said Lyons. For those that are inquisitive, the city continues an outreach program to educate both business owners and visitors on the new parking system. The program includes distributing informational brochures, videos, social media campaigns, and meetings with downtown merchants.

 

“We are very pleased to once again partner with the City of Sarasota for this transformative project,” said Benoit Reliquet, President of Flowbird North America, “We anticipate an increase in compliance and customer satisfaction now that a smart parking system has been added to the City’s downtown core.”

 

Flowbird’s CWT kiosks will go live mid-July starting in the Judicial district on Main Street and Ringling Boulevard, spreading across the heart of the city with a phased-in approach.

 

Currently, Flowbird supports over 40,000 parking pay stations for 600 customers throughout the U.S. This project allows the company to continue its rapid expansion in Southern Florida.

LAX BREAKS GROUND ON INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION FACILITY – WEST, A KEY COMPONENT OF THE LANDSIDE ACCESS MODERNIZATION PROGRAM

LAX BREAKS GROUND ON INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION FACILITY – WEST, A KEY COMPONENT OF THE LANDSIDE ACCESS MODERNIZATION PROGRAM

Facility will serve as a mobility hub, add approximately 4,500 parking stalls to the airport

 

From left: LAWA Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint, Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) President Sean Burton, Los Angeles City Councilmember Mike Bonin (District 11), Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles City Councilmember Joe Buscaino (District 15), BOAC Vice President Valeria Velasco, BOAC Commissioner Gabriel Eshaghian and Swinerton Builders Senior Vice President Dave Callis participate in today’s groundbreaking of LAX’s Intermodal Transportation Facility-West.

(Los Angeles, CA) Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) leadership and elected officials for a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Intermodal Transportation Facility – West (ITF-West), a key component of Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP). Located between Westchester Parkway and 96th Street, the ITF-West, a parking structure and mobility hub, will be the first component of LAX’s modernization projects to be completed, opening in 2021. Two new roadways – Jetway Boulevard and 93rd Street – will provide direct access to the facility.

 

“Today’s groundbreaking is an important milestone in our work to build the world-class airport travelers expect and deserve,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Once complete, the ITF-West will stand as a new front door to our airport welcoming travelers, reducing traffic congestion, and offering a seamless connection with the upcoming Automated People Mover.”

 

“This is another milestone as LAX becomes both a world-class airport and first-class neighbor,” said Councilmember Mike Bonin, who represents the communities adjacent to the airport. “This new facility will create one of three convenient alternatives to driving into the airport’s crowded central terminal area. From here, an elevated tram will pick up and drop off travelers in a matter of minutes, reducing frustration for those coming to and from the airport, and reducing traffic for neighbors I represent.”

“With tourism to Los Angeles at an all-time high, the continuing modernization of LAX will exponentially multiply positive economic impacts throughout the region,” said Councilmember Joe Buscaino, Chair of the Trade, Travel and Tourism Committee. “ITF-West will serve visitors and LAX employees using the latest green and smart technology while preparing Los Angeles to welcome visitors for the 2028 Olympics.”

Deborah Flint, CEO of Los Angeles World Airports (left), speaks during today’s groundbreaking event. Mayor Eric Garcetti (right) signs a beam at the event, which will be incorporated in the future structure.

The four-story structure will provide much-needed parking for the fourth-busiest airport in the world, adding approximately 4,500 stalls – more than half of the parking stalls located in the Central Terminal Area (CTA) structures today. Featuring short and long-term parking options, the facility also will boast a Meet and Greet area, valet parking, electrical vehicle charging stations, and potential space for concessions. A shuttle will transport travelers and employees from the ITF-West to and from the CTA until completion of the Automated People Mover (APM) project in 2023. The ITF-West will feature an APM station, providing direct access to the new train system, and time-guaranteed access to the CTA once the APM is completed.

 

“In Los Angeles, parking is at a premium, especially at the airport,” said Sean Burton, President, Board of Airport Commissioners. “As a Board, we are focused on offering options and adapting to the ever-changing patterns of transportation. The Intermodal Transportation Facility – West will provide new parking and mobility options for our guests and will be ready to adapt to future airport needs.”

 

The ITF-West also will house the 26,000 square foot LAWA Security & Badging Office (SBO), which will benefit the more than 55,000 badged employees at LAWA and the environment. Currently, the SBO is located on the far west side of the airport off Pershing Avenue and World Way. With the APM system connecting to the ITF-West and Airport Metro Connector Station in 2023, employees will be able to utilize public transportation and the APM to take care of their badging needs, helping to take vehicles off the roadways and lower emissions.

 

“One year ago today, our Board of Airport Commissioners approved the contract for Swinerton Builders to design and construct the Intermodal Transportation Facility – West, and as we now start to construct this facility, it’s a symbolic step towards reliable and functional access to LAX ” said Deborah Flint, Chief Executive Officer, LAWA. “By providing new options for our guests and employees with the latest parking technology, and multi-modality we are preparing LAX for the future of mobility.”

The Intermodal Transportation Facility – West will open in 2021.

Sustainable elements include LED lighting with energy saving lighting controls, dedicated parking spaces for low emitting vehicles and car/van pools, low flow plumbing fixtures, electric vehicle charging stations, drought tolerant landscaping and recycled water.

 

The facility also will feature the latest smart parking technology. Parking Guidance Systems will be incorporated to identify the number of available parking spaces. This technology will be supplemented with a Parking Space Indicator System that directs drivers to available parking spaces through the use of green and red lights.

 

The experienced team of Swinerton Builders, featuring Watry and Gensler, is designing and building the project. The Swinerton team is fresh off of building the San Diego Airport Terminal 2 Parking Plaza and specializes in the construction of large parking structures.

 

The ITF-West is a major component of LAX’s $5.5 billion Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP). LAMP also features the APM, a 2.25 mile elevated train guideway featuring six stations, which will connect the terminals to new off-site parking facilities, new pick-up/drop-off locations, a Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility and will provide the long-awaited connection to the regional light rail system.

Spin and Passport partner to build optimal e-scooter deployment strategies

Spin and Passport partner to build optimal e-scooter deployment strategies

Charlotte, Detroit and Omaha apply parking principles to help scooter operators manage fleet size and distribution

 

July 11, 2019 — Today, Spin announced that it has joined Passport’s micro-mobility pilot program to test a scooter parking model for Spin’s electric scooter fleets in Charlotte, Detroit, and Omaha.

The way it works: Passport facilitates parking transactions between micro-mobility companies and each city by charging scooter providers for the time scooters are parked and not in use. Instead of cities pre-determining scooter fees or caps, operators like Spin can limit or increase their fleet size based on the dynamic pricing determined by the cities. Using the framework of parking for single-occupancy vehicles, cities can achieve desired outcomes such as decreased congestion while giving scooter companies more control over their fleets.

Spin, the Ford-owned dockless electric scooter company, is the latest to join the pilot following Lime who signed on in March of this year. Spin has been investing in complementary and adjacent transportation partnerships as it plans to enter 100 new cities and campuses by the end of 2019. Passport has established relationships with hundreds of municipalities and can help connect Spin to city leaders to enable private-public collaboration.

“We’re excited to work with Passport and the cities of Charlotte, Omaha and Detroit to test out new ways of pricing scooter parking,” said Beaudry Kock, Head of Policy Initiatives at Spin. “As an operator, we have always supported commonsense fleet caps, and believe that the number of scooters on the streets should be proportional to actual usage. Price incentives will give us the tools to more efficiently deploy our vehicles, as well as help cities achieve their mobility policy goals. We look forward to being among the first major micromobility operators to pioneer dynamic parking pricing at scale, and hope such pricing models grow in use as a way to improve parking in general.”

Since kicking off the pilot program with three cities in March, Passport has worked to gather data, understand scooter parking patterns and test potential pricing models. Data from Charlotte in May showed more than 63,000 scooter parking sessions with an average length of 130 minutes. As Passport creates parking invoices on behalf of the cities, scooter companies can respond by optimizing their fleet size and placement in order to decrease parking prices, therefore aligning more closely with city objectives.

“Through this pilot program, Passport has helped us to automate, measure and enforce a model for scooter parking,” said Tariq Bokhari, Charlotte City Council member. “We are thrilled that Spin is an enthusiastic partner in this endeavor as we work to improve how scooters are managed in our city to achieve positive outcomes.”

“The goal of our pilot program is to bring city leaders and mobility companies together to create a framework and evaluate pricing models for electric scooter parking than can be applied to a variety of vehicles,” said Bob Youakim, CEO of Passport. “With Spin on board, we take another step forward in making this model a new reality for cities, helping them dramatically transform how vehicles, like electric scooters, can be equitably deployed and managed to meet their unique community needs and policies.”
