Presented by: Miranda Bradshaw, Senior Product Manager, Passport Labs, Inc.; Jeshua Pringle, AICP, CAPP, Project Manager, Kimley-Horn; Fed Revolte, Parking Division Manager, Mobility Department, City of Tampa

Cities that share data through technology can experience numerous benefits including enhanced decision-making, increased transparency and collaboration, and improved customer experience. In particular, benchmarking enables cities to optimize their operations based on comparisons to other peer cities. However, determining which cities to use as peers and getting access to current, relevant data is time consuming and expensive.

Coding the Curb: Digital Infrastructure for Curb Management

Presented by: Regina Clewlow, Ph.D.CEO & Co-founder, Eliot Mueting, Head of Implementations; Populus Technologies, Inc

Digital infrastructure has been proven to be a necessary investment for cities thinking of how to manage their streets in the future. How do I manage shared mobility (bikes, cars, scooters)? Sidewalk delivery robots? Autonomous vehicles, drones, and other devices not yet conceived of? Digital infrastructure is being developed and honed by department of transportation and parking officials in partnerships with technology providers to enable this future. With small micromobility devices (e-scooters and bikes) being the first to prove the use case these same methods are increasingly being deployed to manage larger and more complex fleets (carshare and commercial delivery vehicles). 

One example of Digital Infrastructure is an easy-to-use, share, and update inventory of a city's curb and parking regulations. However, creating this data, integrating it with legacy systems, , and  leveraging it for real world use cases can seem impossibly daunting — but it doesn’t have to be.

This session will cover new data standards, such as the Curb Data Specification (CDS) and Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS), and the role they play in helping city departments of transportation and parking authorities more effectively manage and control their curbs.


3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

LPR & Invoice by Mail - MBTA Case Study of Frictionless Parking Experience

Presented by: Bruno Lopes, Director of Parking & Station Access, Massachusetts Bay Transportation

One of the primary goals of LPR is to create a customer experience that encourages increased ridership by making it as convenient as possible to pay and park. With invoice by mail, MBTA offers a non-punitive 2nd payment option for riders. For any unpaid parking sessions, an invoice covering the balance of the time may be sent by mail using a fully automated gateless LPR and invoice by mail system for processing and mail out. Learn more about how fixed LPR and invoice by mail is allowing the MBTA to repurpose its PEOs to create more efficiency and improve parking services.

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
