The Australian town, which is home to the Optimus Stadium, is implementing Smarter City Solutions’ vPermit to improve parking access and modernise the council’s parking management system.
Western Australian town of Victoria Park has launched, vPermit, a virtual parking permit solution designed to improve parking options for residents and counteract the influx of cars.
Developed by parking technology company, Smarter City Solutions, the tailored, digital solution aims to streamline the process of residential parking management and simplify the permit application process via its virtual platform.
The inner-city precinct is located immediately south-east of Perth central business district. It is home to a wide range of businesses and attractions, including Optus Stadium, which has a capacity of over 60,000 people and hosts upwards of 45 major sporting and entertainment events per year.
As a result, the streets of Victoria Park are subject to the overflow of event-goers scouring for parking on event days, which it reports can be a burden on surrounding residents.
“The residents of Victoria Park will now be able to easily apply for and manage their parking permits through vPermit so they can conveniently access parking near their homes,” said Michael Doherty, head of business development for Smarter City Solutions.
“vPermit’s technology streamlines the entire process for residents and the council, and residents can have peace of mind knowing their paper permits won’t be stolen or lost”
“vPermit’s technology streamlines the entire process for residents and the council, and residents can have peace of mind knowing their paper permits won’t be stolen or lost. In the past [the] council had to dedicate hours to the manual distribution and authentication of paper permits, which was also removed as a result of implementing this advanced licence-plate-based technology.”
Smarter City Solutions builds and deploys integrated, cloud-based parking solutions that enable municipalities and campuses to deliver a better experience to their staff and stakeholders. Its suite of products includes CellOPark, a parking payment app that gives users the flexibility to only pay for the amount of parking they actually use.
