Smart parking trial coming to Manuka

smart parking trial

The ACT Government will next year introduce a smart parking trial in Manuka, Chief Minister Andrew Barr has announced today. 

Barr says the smart parking technology will save time, reduce traffic delays and provide “a better overall user experience”.

“Drivers will be able to use a smart phone app, as well as intelligent, real-time traffic signs, to be guided to an available parking space. Real-time information on parking congestion will be captured through in-ground sensors and relayed to the app and signs,” he says. 

Just don’t use that smart phone app while driving, Rioters…

A smarter parking trial would be price parking more like a real market so the price goes up as fewer spaces are available and goes down as more spots become vacant.

They’ve flagged this as something they want in the trial:

The trial operator will be required to offer strategies for parking surge periods, including events at Manuka Oval or other sites.

How about ACTION buses has an App that actually uses the GPS data that they are using to locate the buses.

They already do (and have for a long time). GPS data is part of the developer access and apps have been using it for ages. The app I use (TripMate Canberra) is one such option. The timetable data is live, not static.
