Considering the Human Element: Planning Changes in Your Parking Operation 

Presenters: Josh Cantor, CAPP, George Mason University; Marlene Cramer, CAPP, California Polytechnic State University, Cameron Neufeld, University of Manitoba; and Cindy Campbell, International Parking & Mobility Institute 

The parking industry is full of changes, exciting and motivating us. But what effect do these changes have on our customers? While the parking industry progresses with new technology to be more efficient and improve the customer experience, how does it consider the human element and not leave a segment of the customers behind? In this presentation, we will focus on some of the pitfalls of change, and ways to mitigate potential negative effects on our customer base. 


  • Identify the potential customer groups that may be disenfranchised or negatively impacted by what is generally considered as positive change with the implementation of parking technology. 
  • Craft strategies and solutions to address the human element-i.e. how to ensure that technology and other parking changes work for all customers. 
  • Explore how to better formulate plans to avoid the pitfalls often encountered with change to overcome those who may not as readily adapt. 


Dynamic Mobility: Client-Centric Parking-Transportation Modeling Pioneers Efficiency  

Presenters: Christian Matthews, SP+; Esteban Sanchez, Commutifi; and Jacob Greig & Brett Dodson, Oregon Health & Sciences University 

Today's dynamic mobility systems and service demands are evolving faster than ever.  This panel will share why ongoing transportation modeling and creative parking solutions drive answers for organizations. Using the most valuable data to drive changes to meet your service, cost, and sustainability goals ideally will change ridership behaviors over the longer term. Determining which data sets to use is the key differentiator between successful and unsuccessful programs. 


  • Identify the importance of ongoing modeling of your transportation system and how parking operations contribute to a successful mobility program. 
  • Explore the critical data sets that determine proper action steps to improve your operation. 
  • Explain technology and data options that can improve service, reduce costs and drive your sustainability goals. 


Finding Common Ground: An Interactive Town Meeting Role Play  

Presenters: Mark Schleyer, CAPP, AIMS Parking; Mike Tudor, CAPP, Parking Authority of River City; and Jon Martens, CAPP, Walker Consultants 

In this interactive session, attendees will get to role-play a City Council Meeting where the Council presents a plan to implement paid on-street parking that may have residual effects in the local neighborhood. Based on the data, recommendations will be given to the attendees to implement a paid parking program to include meters, pay stations, pay by plate, pay by app, and a residential parking program (RPP). 


  • Recognize strategies that engage and listen to the neighborhood and business to understand potential issues. 
  • Demonstrate how to prepare effective responses in advance of the public meeting. 
  • Practice predicting potential reactions various stakeholders may have when presented with a paid parking plan. 



4 – 5:00 p.m.

Building a Strong Parking Program: Four-Pillar Blueprint – A Director’s Journey from Challenge to Triumph  

Presenters: Faye Morrison, City of Medford, MA; Sang Hweng, PayByPhone and Steven Snyder, IPS Group

Through a case study lens, explore how a Parking Director of the City of Medford transformed inefficient, outsourced parking into an in-house success story. In just 18 months, they accomplished a 280% surge in parking revenue, plus increased safety by implementing modernized integrated technology and a parking enforcement program. Explore the four pillars of success: 1) supplier collaboration 2) procurement resources 3) synergized technology and teams, and 4) community relations. Gain powerful insights to overcome resource constraints and streamline processes. 

  • Discover approaches to introducing modernized technology and enforcement practices to a change-resistant community and achieve workforce-technology harmony for enhanced efficiency. 
  • Recognize insights into independently transforming a parking operation from scratch with limited resources. 
  • Demonstrate how parking leaders can build relationships with vendors to nurture ongoing collaboration and ensure alignment in pursuing objectives. 

Electrifying the Future: Sustainable Transit Centers with Cutting-Edge Charging Infrastructure  

Presenters: Timothy Pool, Tec Inc. Engineering & Design; and Ben Capelle, Laketran 

Discover the transformative project behind Lake County, Ohio's electric bus transit system. Explore the design of innovative charging infrastructure, including cutting-edge ABB HVC-PD 450 KW Bus chargers and precise cable design. Learn how this technology revolutionizes electric bus charging, enhances sustainability, and uses a unique funding structure. Don't miss this opportunity to explore the future of sustainable transit. 

  • Analyze the components of electric bus charging infrastructure, including the design and integration of DC power cables and charging pantograph technology. 
  • Evaluate the environmental impact and sustainability benefits of the project, assessing its contribution to emission reduction and public transit accessibility. 
  • Apply their newfound knowledge to real-world scenarios, identifying opportunities to implement similar sustainable transit infrastructure projects in their own communities. 

No More Time Limits! Adopting a New On-Street Progressive Rate Parking Paradigm  

Presenters: Kevin White, CAPP, Walker Consultants; and Hannah Adeponu, CAPP, Kenneth Smith, and Jacob Larson, City of Omaha, Nebraska 

This session will explore the adoption, inner workings, and impacts of the new on-street progressive parking rate structure recently adopted and implemented. Focus will be on the role that the new progressive on-street parking rate structure has played in transforming the user experience, and the management of valuable on-street parking and curb space. Before and after data will be highlighted to illustrate the impacts of the new on-street approach. 

  • Discover the details of successful adoption of a new progressive on-street parking rate structure, how the system works, and what impacts the system has had on the user experience and city operations. 
  • Explain the operations, policy, stakeholder engagement, and technology considerations that need to be made to adopt a similar system in your city. 
  • With a focus on data metrics, identify and discuss lessons learned from our journey that can be applied to your own operation. 

Understanding Your Value While Growing Through Change  

Presenter: Julius Rhodes, SPHR, mpr group 

Our values are tied to closely held beliefs that guide our behavior. When change occurs, it is a natural disruptor to our equilibrium and the balance we strive to maintain and can affect those values and how we perceive ourselves. In today’s world, change is occurring at an accelerated rate due to technology, among other factors. This session will provide participants with a foundational comprehension of the key factors that impact our perceptions of ourselves, and the ability to see themselves positively while consistently demonstrating their value to others while managing change. Participants will be given the ability to grasp key concepts that can be readily applied in their personal and professional lives, allowing them to better navigate issues of change.
