Flowbird and Wescor Deliver Integrated Parking Solution To Gloucester, MA



New Parking Pay Stations and Mobile Application Launched In Vibrant Coastal Community




Moorestown, NJ —  Flowbird Group, a global leader in curbside management and urban mobility solutions, announced that it has launched a new parking system for the seaside community of Gloucester, MA in partnership with its local distribution partner, Wescor Parking Controls.  Located 45 minutes from Boston, Gloucester is home to America’s oldest seaport.  Visitors come from all over to visit unique shops, artists, and award winning restaurants, making it very important to have an easy-to-use parking solution.


Visitors to Gloucester now have the option to pay at any one of the 79 solar powered parking kiosks or on the Flowbird mobile app.  The system is setup for Pay by Plate parking where parking enforcement is managed by the driver’s license plate number.  All transactions made at the pay stations, and on the Flowbird app, are sent in real-time to the City’s enforcement system.


Gloucester has utilized Flowbird parking kiosks in off-street parking lots for almost 10 years.  This new implementation expands the use of parking kiosks to on-street locations, replacing the City’s single space parking meters.  Drivers now have the convenience of paying with their credit card at the kiosks, or on the Flowbird app, which is available for iPhone or Android or at www.flowbirdapp.com.


The convenience of the Flowbird app helps drivers avoid citations by offering text notifications when time is about to expire and the app also provides time extension functionality. Designed as a true mobility app, the Flowbird app features a map-based user interface, integrated with Waze and other navigation systems to guide users to their preferred parking location.  Flowbird app accounts can be set up for individual motorists or for businesses to manage their fleets.


The City will also benefit from Flowbird’s elite back-office management suite. The system integrates reporting of all meter and mobile transactions, making it easier than ever to manage the parking system minute-by-minute. Flowbird’s powerful data hub provides the City with block-by-block parking activity information, aggregating payments from the Flowbird pay stations and the Flowbird app into one central web-based system.


Flowbird continues to increase its presence in Massachusetts where it recently deployed a new parking solution in Worcester and has had a long term presence in the cities of Boston, Andover, Beverly, Medford, Pittsfield, and Somerville.
