Train station smart parking FAQs
Why is smart parking needed for a train station?
Searching for an available parking space is a daily source of frustration for many commuters who are usually under time pressure. In the worst-case scenario, commuters might even opt to simply drive to work instead of taking environmentally friendly public transport options. By offering quick and easy parking and making their journey to work or elsewhere as simple as possible, cities and train station operators can incentivize commuters to take public transport.
How does smart parking benefit train passengers?
Smart parking offers those taking the car to get to the train station to find available parking spaces quickly and easily.
Where are smart parking sensors installed at a train station?
Smart parking sensors can be installed on lampposts or, alternatively, on buildings. By using existing infrastructure for the installation, groundwork can be avoided.
