Modii’s technology comprises digital infrastructure, data integration, and parking intelligence to give users the resources they need for smart parking planning. The platform is designed to empower the city in the planning and management of parking, and their ability to serve the residents and commuters of Colorado Springs.
“Anyone who’s tried to find parking in Colorado Springs, or any other metropolitan area knows firsthand that the experience can be frustrating,” said Mark Frumar, President of Modii. “We’re thrilled to partner with the City of Colorado Springs to give residents and commuters access to convenient parking solutions at their fingertips, along with the data-driven insights that will help parking administrators optimize parking supply to meet customer demand at all times.”
Today, the Colorado Springs Parking Finder powered by Modii is live and ready for use. The tool displays the digital infrastructure of curbside parking assets and the location of:
- Free parking
- Paid parking (including rates)
- Handicapped meter parking
- Commercial loading zones
- Restricted and unrestricted free parking
- Bus shuttles (Zeb)
- Motorcycle only parking
- Passenger loading areas

With the ability to find the best place to park quickly and with ease, motorists in Colorado Springs will enjoy a more convenient, hassle-free driving experience. The Parking Finder will also help alleviate traffic congestion by streamlining parking. This delivers benefits for businesses whose customers have to park on the street by reducing the frustration of having to drive around to find an open parking spot before shopping, arriving for an appointment, or enjoying a meal.
“The City of Colorado Springs Parking Enterprise is excited to partner with Modii. After meetings with Modii, it was clear their Parking Finder should be the next step forward with technology. Modii’s commitment to grow their platform and develop customizations to meet our needs gave us the comfort we needed to form this partnership.” – John Crawford, Parking Manager at City of Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs is home to more than 483,000 people – and employs over 287,000 people, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Accommodating so many drivers throughout the bustling city has its challenges, and parking can be a significant one. To address these challenges, Colorado Springs decision makers have sought innovative solutions from outside sources.
Modii has been working in Colorado Springs since 2021, when the company was named winner of the Colorado Smart City Alliance Revive! Challenge. The challenge invited participants to provide smart cities solutions with a focus on resiliency and equity. Modii (Spot Parking at the time) was awarded for its dynamic and flexible model for curb use consultation activities and efficient guidance of road users.
