Finding a parking space is a problem shared by city dwellers worldwide. Cities, limited by infrastructure and budget constraints, struggle to cope with population growth and the increasing number of vehicles on the streets. Meanwhile, drivers looking for parking waste time and fuel and increase pollution. By taking advantage of a broad platform of cloud, Big Data, mobile and social technologies, Microsoft CityNext solutions help cities get more value from their existing infrastructure.
Microsoft and our partners provide intelligent parking management solutions that help city governments simplify parking and control costs. For example, drivers can use their phones to locate nearby parking or pay fees. Life also gets easier for civic leaders, who can implement new services with minimal infrastructure investment. At the same time, they can increase revenue through more efficient fare collection.
