The proposal outlines an integrated approach to smart parking in both Oakland and Downtown. We propose significant improvements to the existing parking reservation system operated by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership. Further, we propose a smart parking feasibility study for both Oakland and Downtown.
-in central business districts (CBDs), as many as one in three cars on the road are searching for a parking space . This “cruising for parking” is frustrating, and adds to road congestion and spews greenhouse gases into the atmosphere reducing air quality. We propose a parking based congestion management as an efficient and intelligent way to reduce congestion, decrease pollution and increase the quality of life in both Oakland and Downtown. Comprehensive smart parking management programs have been shown to remedy this inefficient search for parking. The smart parking management strategy for the Oakland-Downtown corridor consists of three components: Parking WayFinding System, technology (meters, sensors, and smart cards) and infrastructure improvements. Singapore, The Netherlands, and San Francisco have proven the congestion benefits of parking based congestion management.
