Parking Sense USA Inc. has won a major contract with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro)
Parking Sense USA Inc., a San Antonio, Texas-based company, has won a major contract with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) to supply parking guidance for over 21,000 parking spaces across Los Angeles.
Following a formal RFP process that included a substantial amount of due diligence, Parking Sense USA was selected from the final three contenders and beat out strong competition from major rivals to secure one of the largest parking guidance contracts ever awarded in California. It is also one of the largest contracts of its kind to be awarded in the US.
Los Angeles is one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the world and the second largest in the United States. Since opening its first parking lot in 1917, Los Angeles County now dedicates roughly 14 percent of its land area exclusively to parking. Todd Wilson, President, Corporate Sales for Parking Sense USA said, “We provided a winning combination of leading edge technology, competitive pricing, and exciting innovations that LA Metro recognized as the most effective solution available”.
Parking Sense USA will be installing their EasyGuide™ parking guidance system across the County. The current agreement will cover current free parking spaces and help provide a more efficient driving and parking experience. “Parking Sense USA technology enables drivers to find their destinations and parking spaces more quickly which is a major contributor to reduced emissions” says CEO Jake Bezzant.
Securing the LA Metro contract is an exciting victory for Parking Sense USA and follows a number of other wins including CBRE Galleria in Dallas, Texas, University of Washington and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The parent company, Parking Sense Global, continues to grow throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the South Pacific.
Parking Sense has also completed successful trade shows in Amsterdam in April and Nashville in May. “It’s fair to say we’ve attracted significant interest from around the world,” says Bezzant. “We were very encouraged by the number of visitors who stopped by our booths in both Amsterdam and Nashville. Based on the recent successes we have enjoyed and the keen interest we are receiving from so many groups near and far indicates we have the correct formula.”
