The US city in the state of Florida is implementing Passport’s mobility management platform to manage its entire parking operation
The city of Fort Lauderdale has partnered with Passport to manage its entire municipal mobility operation from one centralised system.
Fort Lauderdale’s Transportation and Mobility Department selected Passport to implement its mobility platform to manage the city’s entire parking operation.
The platform is capable of connecting enforcement technology, digital permits, and processing payments to allow for real-time reporting and rate setting.
According to Passport, its technology will enable the city to bridge data from previously unconnected systems to make smarter, more strategic decisions about transportation, with the ultimate goal of creating a better experience for residents and visitors.
In addition, Passport claims the platform’s integration also has the potential to implement tools, including dynamic pricing and predictive availability, to maximise operations and make Fort Lauderdale a more “vibrant, livable city with improved parking and mobility”.
“Linking our entire mobility system under a single umbrella provides us with a unique opportunity to scale our operations, welcome new modes of transport, and make data-driven decisions to improve traffic flow, enhance accessibility, and bring us closer to realising our vision of becoming a fully-connected, multi-modal city of the future,” said Fort Lauderdale, Mayor Dean Trantalis.
“Fort Lauderdale is breaking down walls and implementing a more integrated, connected, and future-proof system that will improve efficiencies now while being adaptable for whatever comes next”
“Through our partnership with Passport, we are providing a roadmap and establishing an example of smart mobility management for other forward-thinking cities to follow.”
Alongside connecting Passport-powered products, such as its digital permit and parking enforcement systems, the platform is also able to plug in other parking and mobility providers, which will allow the city to streamline management and process payments in an increasingly complex environment.
“Through our experience working with hundreds of cities worldwide, we’ve seen the challenges they face with siloed operations, legacy technology, and purchasing cycles that lag the industry’s pace of innovation,” added David Singletary, vice president at Passport.
“Fort Lauderdale is breaking down walls and implementing a more integrated, connected, and future-proof system that will improve efficiencies now while being adaptable for whatever comes next.”
The platform will give the city access to data and will centralise all forms of mobility in one place. With Passport, the city will be able to:
• Assess real-time parking demand;
• Expand the availability of digital payments throughout the mobility ecosystem;
• Enable predictive availability capabilities for parking facilities;
• Optimise parking inventory through dynamic pricing;
• Enforce mobility rules, rates and regulations through a real-time compliance platform;
• Enable management of emerging modes of transportation through a central platform.
Passport reports it has processed nearly $1bn transportation-related payments to date.
