PARQ: REVOLUTIONALIZING TRANSPORTATION AND PARKING INDUSTRY

Parksen Green, Smart and connected City platform is created to help solve problems associated in the parking and transportation industry. Some of these problems include loss of time and money, economic and non economic impact, outdated systems and environmental issues. In most countries where cars are the dominant mode of transportation, parking lots are a feature of every city and suburban area. Shopping malls, sports stadium, mega churches and similar venues often feature parking lots of immense area. Parking lots tend to be sources of water, air and land pollution and wastage of funds because of their extensive impervious surfaces and high fees rate. Most existing lots have limited or no facilities to control runoff. Many areas today require minimum landscaping. Various forms of technology are used to charge motorists for the use of a parking lot. In North America, parking minimums are requirements as dictated by municipalities zoning ordinance, for all new developments to provide a set number off street parking spots. Parking minimums by municipalities’ base on ratios from parking generation had a substantial effect on urban form which can be seen in the lack of density characterized by the suburbanization of North America post world war. Billions of man hours are lost in a “stuck in traffic” excuse. The cost of travel has increased considerably, especially for the economically lower class. Non motorized models such as cycling and walking have become non-existent or extremely risky, since there is no right of way for these modes. Lower rents and land prices led to extended city peripheries that increase travel distances, thereby forbidding non-motorized modes, parking space/lot congestion is ubiquitous everywhere. Increase in congestion and driver frustration as well as irregular pricing rates is been contributed due to outdated and lack of modern equipment. When checked the reasons why some parking spots are not used, its often traced to the non cooperation between the different parties involved coupled with its high personnel maintenance and administrators

 

Parq is a creation of Parksen Parking which is fully functional and tested parking app. It’s a green, smart and connected platform which has helped in renewing and expanding Minimum Viable Product, so as to ensure that the problems aforementioned are properly tackled.
