O’Connor Works to Extend Parking Pilot Program to Rest of the City

Working with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, Councilman O’Connor has worked out an innovative plan that would vary the parking rates, based on data, to allow drivers to better utilize parking spots.

Uniformly priced parking by location or street has resulted in highly competitive spaces in the City’s popular areas while spaces in low density areas remain underutilized.

The new model will address both of these issues by adjusting prices based on the parking demands. Researchers have shown that using a dynamic pricing model increases effective use of parking spaces while bringing more revenue to the City.
