11:15 am – 12:15 pm 

Managing the Corridor: A New Way to Enhance Mobility and Reduce Congestion with Parking
Nick Mazzenga, PE, Kimley-Horn 

Parking is one of the most important components for a successful integrated corridor management (ICM) program—a cooperatively managed transportation system that promotes a multi-modal system and reduces congestion. None of this can be accomplished without the involvement of parking professionals and stakeholders. This interactive program will demonstrate the importance of parking for ICM and help bridge the gap between parking operators, owners, and state DOTs.
  • Comprehend the concepts of ICM and the role of parking within a successful ICM program.
  • Define the role of parking owners and professionals in an ICM program and understand how you can be an effective and informed stakeholder.
  • Recognize the various stakeholders involved to create a successful program.

4:30 pm – 5:30 pm 

Automated Vehicles on Our Roads: Lessons Learned From a Real-world Pilot Program
Joshua Naramore, City of Grand Rapids, Mich.

There is a ton of media attention around automated vehicles (AVs). When will AVs become widely available and what effects will they have on cities? These questions have yet to be definitively answered. In July 2019, the City of Grand Rapids, Mich., launched the Grand Rapids Autonomous Shuttle Initiative (AVGR), a public/private partnership for AV service on the streets of the city. Come learn and explore a real-world example of our autonomous future.
  • Recognize the effects of AVs on public infrastructure.
  • Compare public perceptions of AVs before and after the pilot project.
  • Evaluate opportunities for engagement in future discussions around AVs.

TDM For The Win: Creating a More Sustainable Campus
Brett Wood, CAPP, Wood Solutions Group, LLC; Gabe Mendez, CAPP, JC Porter, CAPP, Arizona State University

Arizona State University's Parking & Transit staff recently embarked on the development of a campus wide TDM playbook and program intended to guide the university through a transitional growth period; they worked to position it for a more sustainable future that reduced dependence on single-occupant vehicles and leveraged recent investments in micro-mobility. This presentation will focus on the development of the TDM program and early stages of implementation.

  • Learn about the merits of successful TDM programs.
  • Define the steps to take the leap into a new TDM program.
  • Learn about the collaboration necessary to achieve success in a TDM program.


Integrated Mobility and Connected Cars                                                                      
Ilker Durmaz, Max Schoen, PayByPhone Technologies

Cities across the globe face traffic congestion and pollution challenges that seriously impact the quality of life, as well as local economies. Many are turning to parking and mobility technology to help mitigate these problems by reducing circling city blocks in the search for parking spaces and encouraging last-mile alternatives to reduce congestion and pollution and make streets safer for pedestrians. In the not-to-distant future, many of these technologies, including mobile parking payment and parking guidance, will join GPS technology on vehicle dashes to guide drivers directly to available parking and permit them to automatically pay for that parking.

In this presentation, two parking and mobility experts will discuss the challenges facing cities and private parking owners. They will also provide a glimpse of some of the technologies that will soon be making their way onto our dashes, as well as the OEMs that are creating them. Finally, the presenters will take you on three trips to illustrate how major cities are addressing these issues.

  • How integrated mobility solutions solve problems such as congestion for cities
  • What roles OEMs will play and how they currently view parking and mobility
  • How we can make parking spaces more accessible to the drivers (which post-covid might be more important than ever with people avoiding public transit)


Helping Cities Understand Current & Future Parking Requirements with Real-Time Stall-Based Occupancy Monitoring: A Real-World Case Study  
Ryan Hickey,eleven-x Inc, Domenic Sorbara

Parking has quickly become a major area of focus (typically as a pain point) for cities of all sizes. When it comes to understanding their current parking supply situations, discussions with most cities will reveal a negative overall experience due to the lack of spaces. However, the total number of stalls is not necessarily the core issue. Quite often, the perception that parking supply is deficient to the expected or desired experience is based on the time it takes a customer to locate a vacant parking space versus the time they want to stay within a certain area/location. As such, finding an available space in a timely manner is really the defining metric for a positive parking experience.

This presentation will focus on the City of Stratford, Ontario as a real-world case study as to how stall-based occupancy monitoring is helping them solve their biggest parking experience and congestion challenges. Initially looking to understand parking activity patterns, the city has adopted a stall-based occupancy solution to help them understand their current parking supply and its usage, their true parking demand requirements, as well as identifying opportunities to improve their current infrastructure, and what future additions may be required.

  • Understand the importance of utilizing accurate and consistent data in order to clearly understand how parking assets are really being used
  • Analyze assumptions about their current parking infrastructure in terms of stall usage, infrastructure optimization and overall space allocation
  • Evaluate the potential impact parking has on high traffic areas in terms of congestion, usage and economical factors in providing an overall positive community experience

Micro-mobility and Parking: First and Last-mile Options and What They Mean for Your Operation

Peter W. Lange, Texas A&M University- College Station; Michael Drow, CAPP, T2 Systems, Inc.

This presentation provides an overview of what can be a beautiful friendship between first- and last-mile mobility services and parking—including yours. Review various micro-mobility options and how they fit into your existing parking operations. Review the pros and cons of each mobility service and the importance of integrating data sharing so a mobility professional can excel.
  • Summarize micro-mobility options that are available and review the pros and cons of each.
  • Share strategies to integrate micro-mobility into parking and transportation operations.
  • Get an overview of the critical nature of international data standards and the APDS and how they can be applied to streamline operations.

Riding in Style: Will We See Mass Transit Buses and TNCs with Tesla Style and Efficiency?
Michael Klein, CAPP, Klein & Associates; and Barbara Chance, PhD, CHANCE Management Advisors, Inc.

This case study shows how a Tesla Model 3 performs in terms of battery life, operating costs, and range/recharge, pointing toward better possibilities for the future of mass transit. Working from his original data, Mike Klein will offer his view of the future while Barbara Chance will both support and counter some of his conclusions with data and facts from U.S. transit conditions and countries farther ahead of the U.S. in electric vehicles. Point/counterpoint!
  • Understand and apply new opportunities currently available with electric vehicles to enhance mobility offerings.
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of converting from an internal combustion engine (ICE) fleet to an electric fleet.
  • Create a plan to migrate from ICE engines to electric motors, consistent with technological progress.
