Beyond the App: Cashless Parking and the Future of Electronic Payments

Room 27A

 

 


Is North America moving towards a cashless society? With mobile devices becoming a primary tool for payments, the case for cashless in parking and beyond must be examined. Safety. Convenience. Efficiency. These are likely the benefits that come to mind when you hear of operations going cashless. But what exactly does “going cashless” mean in the parking world? HonkMobile CEO, Michael Back, will cover what this means (hint: there’s so much more than apps), what the framework entails, and how to achieve the best results from planning to implementation, marketing and ongoing operations.

How Cities Are Using Technology to Improve Parking Officer Safety

Room 27B

 

 

In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the risk of assault and harassment against parking enforcement officers (PEOs) in the course of their duties.
Some cities have turned to technology to protect their enforcement staff. But how do you find a solution that builds on enforcement activities instead of adding a new level of complexity to manage? Genetec AutoVu’s Chris Yigit leads this discussion.

Humanizing the Parking Experience

Room 28A

 

 

According to a 2017 survey, Americans spend an average of 17 hours per year looking for parking. Parking costs an estimated $345 per driver in wasted time, fuel, and emissions. 34% of U.S. drivers abandoned a trip because of parking issues, 23% felt road rage, and 60% avoided driving to shopping sites, airports, leisure or sports centers, and other destinations due to parking challenges. These aren’t just statistics, these are experiences. George Baker of ParkHub covers how we can approach these issues, how we can improve the parking experience for consumers, businesses, and cities; and how we can future-proof parking operations during an unprecedented era of change. It starts with data.

The Customer Experience Transformation - From Zero to Paid Parking in Paso Robles

Room 25C

 

 

The City of Paso Robles is an increasingly popular tourist destination with a vibrant downtown. In 2018, the City didn’t have a single time limit or parking meter, the parking municipal codes hadn’t been updated since the 1950’s, and the community’s perception of parking challenges was varied. This presentation will incorporate findings from a unique six-month employee parking permit pilot that relied upon voluntary compliance and community engagement, rather than on-street regulations, to encourage downtown employees to park off-street. Based on the results of the pilot, and extensive stakeholder outreach, the City developed a paid parking model designed to address the core parking challenges while dispelling the popular perception that paid parking would be a detriment to downtown business. Hear firsthand from the Police Commander, Assistant City Manager, Parking Ambassador, and the City’s Parking Consultant Julie Dixon about Paso Robles’s transformation over the past year, the array of parking technologies that have been introduced, and how the City incorporated customer service and outreach as a key element of the revitalized program.

Parking Doesn't Understand Payments and Payments Don't Understand Parking

Room 28A

 

 

A look at the relationship 54 years after the first credit card payment. Since the first credit card payment was accepted for parking in 1965, there has been a disconnect growing in the industry between payments and parking. PARCS systems and bank compliance has made it difficult. The payments industry, filled with a seemingly unlimited number of fees, has done little to help the relationship. This presentation by Matt Mandell of GAM Payments will cut through the partial truths and give direct honest answers and feedback to bridge the gap between parking and payments understanding the truth is the best disinfectant.
