Local Transit Facility Parking Management
This element represents the parking management systems operated by transit operators and used by transit customers.
|Parking Area Management
|'Parking Area Management' detects and classifies vehicles at parking facility entrances, exits, and other designated locations within the facility. Current parking availability is monitored and used to inform drivers through dynamic message signs/displays so that vehicles are efficiently routed to available spaces. Parking facility information, including current parking rates and directions to entrances and available exits, is also provided to drivers.
|'Parking Coordination' supports communication and coordination between equipped parking facilities and also supports regional coordination between parking facilities and traffic management systems. Coordination with traffic management supports local traffic control coordination in and around the parking facility and broader regional coordination. It also shares information with transit management systems and information providers to support multimodal travel planning, including parking reservations capabilities. Information including current parking availability, system status, and operating strategies are shared to enable local parking facility management that supports regional transportation strategies.
|Parking Data Collection
|'Parking Data Collection' collects and stores parking information that is collected in the course of parking system operations. This data can be used directly by operations personnel or it can be made available to other data users and archives in the region.
|'Parking Management' monitors parking area operations for one or more parking areas, monitoring current operational status including current parking occupancy and rates supporting back office operations.
