Arvada, Colorado - Modii, formerly Spot Parking, is proud to announce the launch of its Modii Cities Platform in the City of Arvada, utilizing its proprietary technology platform to empower City Administrators in the planning and management of parking and their ability to serve residents and commuters of Arvada. After a competitive RFP process, Arvada selected Modii to establish its digital infrastructure of curbside and off-street parking assets, as well as to implement a parking utilization dashboard to benefit Administrators in the analysis of parking in the area.
“The City of Arvada chose Modii as a technology provider for our curbside inventory, and garage occupancy data dashboard due to their agnostic interface. The ability of their system to integrate the current parking technologies of our parking operation, and future technologies we may implement as the operation expands was a key component to their selection,” said Derek Fern, Travel Demand Management and Parking Coordinator, City of Arvada.
As part of the launch, Modii has created a comprehensive Parking Finder for drivers that personalizes a visualization of real-time parking entitlements, displaying free parking areas, paid parking areas, no parking zones, accessibility parking spaces, as well as a live and predicted availability count in the Regional Transportation District (RTD) Transit Hub Garage. Designed for smartphones (and accessible from any device), the Arvada Parking Finder makes it easy for drivers to quickly find a parking space, avoid circling for parking and eliminate the uncertainty that can lead to fines for parking incorrectly. While this provides a notable impact towards alleviating traffic congestion in the city, it also helps to improve the overall parking experience for commuters via real-time information on parking availability.
“We are very excited to partner with such an innovative city such as Arvada to greatly improve the parking experience for drivers,” said Mark Frumar, President of Modii. He added, “By making the parking identification process easier for drivers, we’re making their lives easier by giving them time back in their day that they would otherwise spend in the frustrating search for parking.”
The Arvada Parking Finder also provides information on parking rules, regulations, and restrictions, as well as parking fees and limits. Drivers can search for parking by destination, intersection, or landmark, and can also customize their parking needs by filtering for the specific parking they require.
The Modii Parking Intelligence Dashboard (Modii PI) has been designed for the daily operations of Arvada’s Parking Administrators, providing valuable insights on parking utilization data and information. Administrators can easily update regulations in cases of street events or construction impacts, ensuring drivers are always aware of any changes to parking availability. Modii PI also generates detailed utilization reports for partner agencies such as RTD, automating the process and removing the significant amount of hours previously spent preparing the monthly reports by the Parking Administration Team. Key to Modii’s selection was the platform’s ability to assist officials to better manage parking in the city. With real-time data on parking availability and usage, administrators can now make informed decisions in the optimal deployment of parking resources and allocation of parking spaces and restrictions. This, in turn, helps to improve the overall efficiency of parking in the city and ensures that drivers have the up-to-the-minute information to access the parking they need.
The free Arvada Parking Finder is available to use by anyone in search of parking or seeking to better understand Arvada’s curbside regulations. Modii continues to expand its technology throughout Colorado and beyond, continuing the mission to streamline the parking process and remove the frustrations that have plagued the daily parking experience to date.
