Urban parking guidance in Burlington to control traffic congestion due to the arrival of visitors, especially in the summer.
To lower the amount of time needed to find parking in order to put an end to congestion in the city
The city of Burlington, located in Ontario, Canada, has more than 180,000 inhabitants and has direct access to Lake Ontario, so it’s the ideal place for leisure activities. As a result, the city was facing mobility problems when managing its available parking spots for residents and the large number of visitors it welcomes every day of the year, but especially in the summer.
The Burlington project has a total of 1,337 monitored parking spots, including U-Spot and U-Flow sensors.
Burlington is now using a smart parking system to better understand driver behavior in the city. As a result, it is able to analyze peak hour, mean session time, the use of Park & Ride spots, preferred areas, etc.
Thanks to Urbiotica’s U-Admin Control Center for its parking, the parking manager can analyze the occupancy, rotation on public roads, entrances and departures in Park & Ride parking lots, etc., effectively and quickly.
With this project, a total of 1,337 parking spots are monitored, 434 with U-Spot sensors, while the remainder are Park & Ride spots, which were equipped with 11 U-Flow sensor systems. In turn, dynamic message signs have been installed to show the free parking spots in real time.
