NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 15, 2021 — Metropolis, a leading AI-powered autonomous commerce platform, announced a long-term, national partnership with parking industry leader Premier Parking. Metropolis’ proprietary computer vision technology and mobile platform will be deployed across Premier’s portfolio, which consists of more than 100,000 parking spaces across 500 locations in 40 cities, by the end of the year.
Nashville-based Premier Parking is a leader in the parking industry with facilities across the country. Premier operates, manages and supports a wide range of industries using its unrivaled customer service, innovative solutions and technology-focused approach to bring great benefits to its partners.
Metropolis will help to consolidate Premier’s existing technology systems and streamline operations while providing a seamless online-to-offline parking experience for customers.

“We are changing how people think about parking and making the process safer, easier and more enjoyable,” said Premier CEO Ryan Hunt. “By integrating with Metropolis, we are providing our customers with a seamless, first-of-its-kind parking experience to power the future of parking. This partnership combines Premier’s large national market presence with Metropolis’ advanced technology systems, creating a compelling and competitive offering unlike anything currently available.”
Launching in Nashville, Premier’s flagship market, the partnership will expand to additional markets based on urban density and demand for innovation in parking. This includes Austin, Houston, Dallas, and Detroit in the immediate months.
Building on its $41M Series A fundraise in February, this partnership further fuels Metropolis’ rapid geographic expansion and signifies the demand for its frontier technology. By working closely with partners like Premier to build efficiencies into parking assets and provide remarkable experiences for consumers, Metropolis is one step closer to transforming the parking industry and urban mobility.
