Drivers searching for parking are responsible for around 30% of traffic congestion in cities. The congestion caused by poorly managed parking supply frustrates drivers, wastes fuel, creates air and noise pollution, and stifles economic activity. Today, the parking industry is going through its biggest transformation since the introduction of the first parking meters in Oklahoma City in 1935. It is being transformed by new technologies that are having an impact on operational efficiency and customer expectation, even as broader changes are being driven by new perspectives on the role of parking within cities.

Faced with growing environmental and economic pressures on city transportation, cities are reexamining how and where parking is provided and seeking to provide a more balanced view of parking that better manages supply and demand. Enabled by new technologies, innovative approaches to parking are becoming one of the cornerstones of cities’ mobility strategies. Navigant Research forecasts that the installed base of on-street smart parking spaces will surpass 950,000 worldwide by 2020.
