Competing for the Curb: Can On-street Parking Management Survive?
Peer Ghent, PE, City of Los Angeles DOT

Competition for curb space requires new approaches to on-street parking management. !   In recent years, the planners find ourselves competing with TNCs, bicycles, delivery trucks, parklets, scooters, and pop-ups. Many planners view “storing cars on the street” as the lowest priority for the curb space. In this presentation, I will sort out the competitive uses for the curb and discuss how we can develop policies to manage the curb effectively. Bring your thinking cap!

Hear from the experts who are making it happen and learn how APDS is changing the narrative. Panelists will share real-world experience, on-the-ground effects and outcomes, and best practices on how to use the standards to enhance your operations.

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

  • Understand how to balance high-tech with high-touch as more parking operations deploy automation.
  • Evaluate successful strategies to enhance the customer experience, improve operational efficiencies, and increase revenue.
  • Analyze methods for keeping your staff focused on the highest priority tasks.


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)
