|Name||Parking Management Technology for MTC Commuter Parking Facilities|
MTC, in partnership with the California State Department of Transportation (Caltrans), is looking into opportunities to improve existing State-owned commuter parking facilities or to create new ones on Caltrans airspace parcels by or under freeways. The goal is to create commuter parking opportunities for commuters to park and share a ride via transit, carpooling, or vanpooling in the Bay Area. This Commuter Parking Initiative complements other major corridor initiatives that MTC and other agencies are undertaking, including the Bay Area Express Lanes, West Grand Avenue, Access and Mobility Improvements, Bay Bridge Forward and Transit Core Capacity. These initiatives will improve travel time reliability for carpools and transit and are expected to increase the demand for commuter parking.
To facilitate the commuter experience, MTC plans to incorporate various parking technologies and strategies, including real-time parking availability, mobile parking payment, and space reservations. MTC also plans to offer a mix of monthly reserved spaces for regular commuters and spaces paid on a daily basis for others. These strategies are intended to offer reliability, flexibility, information, and ease to commuters and remove barriers to sharing a ride or taking transit. Additionally, MTC intends to use the parking fee revenues to ultimately cover the operating and maintenance cost of the lots, including security and these technologies.
The purpose of this RFI is to gather industry input on parking management technology, including real-time availability and payment technology, with the following objectives in mind:
With input from this RFI, MTC intends to release a RFP to meet these future needs.
