South Orange Parking Authority Updates Its Parking System with User-Friendly Solution from Flowbird

South Orange Parking Authority Updates Its Parking System with User-Friendly Solution from Flowbird

New, updated solar-powered pay stations offer faster options than ever before

 

 

 

Moorestown, New Jersey – The Village of South Orange, New Jersey and the South Orange Parking Authority (SOPA) have announced an exciting upgrade to its parking system in partnership with Flowbird Group, the leader in curbside management and urban mobility solutions. SOPA is replacing its aging pay-by-space parking stations with Flowbird’s Pay-by-Plate Solar-Powered Smart Parking Kiosks, fully equipped with the industry’s latest technology. The upgrade is a part of SOPA’s continuing efforts to enhance the customer service experience with a modernized solution.

The new parking system will feature pay-by-plate parking kiosks that are accessible for all customers, including meeting ADA standards. To begin, the user simply enters their license plate number and desired length of stay. Payment will be accepted with either coins, cash, debit or credit card. Once payment has been made, the parking session has started and there is no need to walk back to their vehicle to display a receipt.

By implementing modernized pay stations with convenient payment options, SOPA will be able to better manage parking turnover and visitor influx during peak periods. The switch to these multi-space pay stations will bring a consistent and higher level of customer service to the parking public.

All transaction data from the pay stations are sent in real-time to Flowbird’s intelligent data management suite and shared with the SOPA’s enforcement solution, ready to be integrated with other payment modes such as mobile phone payments. Using the data provided by the Flowbird system, SOPA staff can enforce all permit and daily parking fee payments and track the highest areas of use throughout the day. This data can be valuable to help determine future parking plans.

The new pay stations are live as of January 2023.

Currently, Flowbird supports over 47,000 parking pay stations for 900 customers throughout the U.S. This implementation will add to Flowbird’s expanding list of cities in New Jersey including Trenton, Newark, Morristown, Rahway, and Bloomfield.

The new Sunsign triple patented, solar portable display sign is revolutionizing the parking & sign industries.  The 1200 lumen bright, double-sided, solar powered, weatherproof, portable sign obtains all its power from the sun to provide up to 7.5 hours of LED backlit lighting at night.  Its unique design allows it to be placed practically anywhere – no need to “face the sun” or worry about any plugs, cords, or electrical wiring hazards.  Integrated wheels, extender legs for high wind or uneven terrain, stakes, and optional locking capabilities allow use in any portable or permanent location.  Per-side 2’ x 3’ signage graphic panels are easily installed or changed via 4 thumb screws per side, making future updating of the sign a snap.   Operating the sign is easy – just place it out in the sun, turn it on, and it will automatically turn on at nighttime, or it can be programmed for specific on/off timing with an optional programmable remote control.  Sunsign weatherproof solar signs are the perfect signage for so many applications – parking garages, valet parking, large event directional parking needs, and so much more.  For more information contact Sunsign Design & Controls, LLC, Flemington, New Jersey, (800) 731-3442, or email sales@sunsigncontrols.com.   www.sunsigncontrols.com

Automotus, launches its fourth cohort of the Commercial Curb Challenge

 

 

Automotus, a leading curb management solutions provider, launched its fourth cohort of the Commercial Curb Challenge. The Commercial Curb Challenge is a private-public partnership initiative aimed at helping cities implement automated curb management solutions without city-led investment. Past awardees include the Pittsburgh Parking Authority, the City of Omaha, the city of Bethlehem (PA) and others.

“Working with Automotus has enabled the Pittsburgh Parking Authority to maintain their status as an industry leader,” stated David Onorato, Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Parking Authority. “The data collected over the past year has proven to be very beneficial to the Authority vision, that we extended our current contract for an additional two years and expanded the smart loading zones to 200 spaces. I look forward to our continued relationship with Automotus in transforming curb management through data and technology,” said Onorato.

This Commercial Curb Challenge will select five cities to join this public-private partnership to implement curb management analytics and automated smart loading to address congestion from on-street parking with a focus on developing strategies to support traffic safety issues and/or transportation emissions.

Selected cities will receive hardware at no upfront cost, support from leading technology and public sector consultants, and tools to support street safety and transportation emission goals of up to $750,000 to implement curbside analytics and automated smart loading zones.

Former recipients of the Commercial Curb Challenge include, City of Pittsburgh, City of Omaha, City of LA, and City of Bethlehem. Pittsburgh, PA has been operating Smart Loading Zones with Automotus since April 2022 and has seen a 20% reduction in dwell times and a 42% reduction in double parking.

Applications and nominations for the Automotus Commercial Curb Challenge are open until February 15, 2023 and can be entered here: https://www.automotus.co/commercial-curb-challenge. For more information, contact Roamy Valera, roamy@automotus.co.
