City of Sacramento Partners with Global Parking Tech Leader to Design Innovative App
New app is part of a region-wide public education effort highlighting the variety of transportation options available to get to downtown and Golden 1 Center
City of Sacramento continues its commitment to implement advanced technology in order to enhance the user experience by partnering with Parkeon, a global leader of urban mobility technology, to design the SacPark app.
The app, which will be available early Fall 2016, will make it easier to locate a parking spot, purchase parking in advance, provide information on space availability, and obtain real-time traffic information.
The launch of the new app will be integrated into a public education campaign and online navigation tool that will highlight information on various transportation options when traveling to downtown and Golden 1 Center, including: light rail, ride share, and bicycles.
“The collaboration with Parkeon symbolizes Sacramento’s commitment to innovation and is one piece of our overall transportation strategy,” said Matt Eierman, City of Sacramento Parking Manager. “The new technology will direct motorists to available parking and improve our transportation management during a time of increased activity in the Central City and the opening of Golden 1 Center.”
The City will be the first U.S. city to implement Parkeon’s newest Path to Park Technology, which has been successfully deployed in France and Belgium.
“We are thrilled about the partnership with the City of Sacramento,” said Bertrand Barthelemy, CEO of Parkeon. “Our global expertise in urban mobility and mobile device technology will provide citizens with a seamless parking experience, and will improve overall traffic management in the downtown Sacramento.”
The City and its partners are committed to making the Sacramento experience convenient and pleasant. The SacPark app will be available before the first event at Golden 1 Center to purchase parking in advance.
