Intelligent Parking Management for Downtown Los Angeles

Challenge:

On-street parking prices did not match demand. Prices were uniform within a given area and were often the same, or cheaper, than garages a few blocks over. There was no incentive to park further away.

 

Solution:

The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation partnered with Conduent for an innovative pilot program designed to ease congestion and reduce pollution through demand based parking pricing and real-time parking guidance.

Results:

 

As early as the first six months of the trial, the LA Park Express pilot already realized substantial results:

  • Parking congestion decreased by 10%, with spaces easier to
    find
  • Under-utilized parking spaces decreased 5%, as drivers were drawn by lower rates
  • Pilot-wide parking rates decreased by 11%, but parking revenue increased by 2%
