Chandigarh, December 6 (Pooja Goyal):-
Sh. V.P. Singh Badnore, Governor of Punjab and Administrator, UT, Chandigarh today launched Smart parking app at the Punjab Raj Bhawan, here in the today evening. The app namely “Arya Smart Parking Chandigarh” can be downloaded through android as well IOS mobile phones, which will help the commuters to locate their parking lot and can book their parking as per their requirement easily.
During the programme, the Administrator said that with the launch of this app the struggle to find parking in the parking lots throughout city will end. Recently, commuter car parkings fill up rapidly with the increased demand, forcing motorists to search for alternative parkings in other locations or drive all the way into the city for work. This increased congestion and commuter angst, as more and more commuters get up trying to use public parking but cannot get their suitable locations.
He said that new smart parking technologies enables commuters to see current car parking information, from rates, restrictions, hours of operation and most importantly, vacancies in real-time. They would then be able to see and select under utilized car parkings near their work places or a viable local alternative before they even leave the house. They could even pre book and pay for the spot through the app there and ensuring they got a convenient parking space for their commute.
