How does it work?
The user has multiple options for finding a space and paying their parking fee.
Benefits for governments and parking operators
Improved control and fare management
Centralised management of parking fees improves control over parking services. With O-CITY, fees can be set for different categories of citizens (for example special care groups or seniors)or based on zones, time or day of the week.
Decreased cruising time and congestion on roads
With O-CITY, parking spaces are found easily thanks to its smart geolocation features. Congestion at parking facilities is greatly reduced, helping governments improve traffic management in busy areas such as city centres and shopping districts.
Decreased operational costs
Governments and parking operators no longer need to handle cash as all payments are made digitally. The adoption of O-CITY does not require replacement of validators/ticket machines or additional maintenance, resulting in substantial economies of scale.
