Cleverciti is thrilled to announce our new partnership with the Miami Parking Authority (MPA). Cleverciti will work with the MPA to enable them to improve curb management operations, reduce curb abuse, and create a “white glove” parking experience for drivers.
Effectively managing the curb in the trendy Midtown neighborhood of Miami has become increasingly difficult in recent years. As traffic has increased, so has congestion and curb abuse from all vehicle types. In response, the Miami Parking Authority (MPA) piloted various technologies to help resolve these issues yet struggled to find a comprehensive platform that simultaneously tackled curb abuse, delivered driver guidance, and integrated payment methods with real-time occupancy data to reveal compliance levels.
Fortunately, as the MPA was shaping a revised strategy they learned of the Cleverciti solution implemented in Redwood City, California that solved similar challenges. In partnership, the teams collaborated on a scalable solution designed to reduce congestion and curb management issues, while enhancing the driver experience for those parking in Midtown.
The initial phase of the MPA plan will concentrate on the heart of Midtown (Buena Vista Blvd, NE 1st Ave between 36th St and 32nd St) and will include:
- 12 Circ 360 Ultras installed at intersections guiding drivers to available spaces.
- 43 sensors to monitor the complete curb providing a fully integrated view of payment compliance, occupancy status, and loading zone activity all from the Cleverciti Cockpit.
- The Cockpit will equip the MPA with new levels of analytical insights, full reporting features, heatmaps, a live view dashboard, and automated Clever Enforcement alerts to MPA staff to mitigate curb abuses.
- The MPA and Cleverciti will share data between systems using the Curb Data Specification (CDS), a digital tool created by the Open Mobility Foundation that helps cities and companies pilot and scale dynamic curb zones. The CDS provides a mechanism for expressing static and dynamic regulations, measuring activity at the curb, and developing policies that create more accessible, useful curbs.
As the project rolls-out, the MPA will use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure congestion, curb abuse, and payment compliance. Based on project averages across Cleverciti’s global customer base, the MPA anticipates double-digit improvements in each category. Additionally, with access to Cleverciti’s comprehensive parking management platform, the MPA will look to integrate existing technologies to further streamline operations across its portfolio.
Cooperatively, the leadership of the MPA and Cleverciti have committed to finding and sharing answers to elusive curb management questions with the aim of moving the parking, mobility, and transportation industry forward collectively.
