SKIDATA Selected to Create and Install State-of-the-Art Parking Technology at 

5th & Mission Garage in San Francisco



San Francisco, CA – SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, has been selected by the San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority (SFMT) to create and install a state-of-the-art parking technology suite for the 5th & Mission Parking Garage. The advanced parking technology suite will provide safe and convenient touchless parking payment for the 2,585-space garage. Located across the street from Bloomingdales and the Westfield Shopping Center, the 5th & Mission Parking Garage is the largest parking facility owned and operated by the SFMT.


“SKIDATA did a great job creating a technology suite that will make the 5th & Mission garage San Francisco’s most convenient parking facility,” said Ted Graff, Parking Director for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.  “And at a time when San Francisco, like the rest of the United States, is impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the parking suite’s touchless payment elements will also provide the safest, healthiest way to pay for parking.” 


The new parking technology suite features 17 lanes of power gates to assure quick, convenient entry and egress. This state-of-the-art system also includes 10 pay-on-foot machines and four cashier stations. Parkers can conveniently pay for parking before returning to their vehicles and then insert the payment ticket into access and revenue control equipment located at exits. 


The parking technology suite also includes 30 closed circuit security cameras and an intercom system at the garage’s exits so parkers can instantly reach an Impark customer service representative if they experience any issues upon exiting. License plate recognition (LPR) equipment is located at entries and exits to provide enhanced revenue security.
