New Taipei launches smart roadside parking system

In order to continue to promote smart parking services, the Transportation Bureau of Taipei has built 3,471 geomagnetic smart parking spaces on 122 parking-intensive road sections in Banqiao, Zhonghe, Yonghe and Xindian districts. These were activated today, March 1.

In addition to providing 24-hour real-time vacancy inquiry service to save people’s time looking for parking spaces, a five-minute free parking discount will also be provided to increase the parking space turnover rate.

The Transportation Bureau has built geomagnetic smart parking grids in areas with high parking demand by using geomagnetic parking space detection technology to display real-time parking space information on the roadside. Using maps and colors to distinguish the vacant spaces online and via mobile ‘Easy Parking’ and ‘Parking Loudong Public’ apps, people can reduce the time they spend wandering around looking for parking spaces, making parking smarter and more convenient.
