The New Brunswick Parking Authority (NBPA) of New Jersey has set up Streetline’s smart parking technology in downtown New Brunswick. The web-based and sensor-enabled mobile parking system from Streetline was deployed in the Plum Street Garage.
New Brunswick is an important transit hub for New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey cities. The smart parking technology would help simplify parking and also lessen the carbon footprint of the city. The Plum Street Garage is situated in a prime location in the transit hub.
The parking system will make use of Streetline's "Parker", a real-time, hands-free application for smart parking. The application can provide parking guidance to visitors, commuters and residents and can also reduce traffic congestion. The "Parker" app for iPhone and Android also provides the rate information for 12 area garages and lots owned by the NBPA.
The smart parking platform can locate cars via a network of wireless sensors that are placed in parking spaces. A suite of mobile and web applications in the system improve customer service and boost operational performance. They also help cities to improve the operation, control and monitoring tasks of garages.
The Plum Street Garage program represents Streetline's advancement in providing smart connected garages.
Streetline CEO, Zia Yusuf said that sensor-based smart parking systems played an important role in transforming large parking facilities.
