St. Augustine, FL. June 15, 2023 – Modii, a leader in smart mobility solutions, in collaboration with the City of St. Augustine is pleased to announce the launch of the St. Augustine Parking Finder website. The digital parking platform is designed to improve the parking experience for both tourists and residents - ensuring they are able to easily identify parking options and availability prior to visiting the historic downtown area. Drivers in St. Augustine are provided with efficient and convenient parking options directly to their phone, while also cutting the congestion caused by those circling to find parking.
Key to the Parking Finder is the ability to see up-to-the-minute parking conditions, as well as live availability in the Historic Downtown Parking Facility, a 1,200 space parking garage. This will significantly help to reduce the time and frustration that the 6 million annual visitors to St. Augustine experience when parking, making it easier for everyone to find a convenient spot when visiting the city on vacation, dining or shopping.
"We are thrilled to announce the launch of our smart parking platform in a city as historic as St. Augustine," said Mark Frumar, President at Modii. "We believe that our technology will greatly benefit both the city, its residents and visitors by improving the experience of everyone visiting the area."
Another major benefit to Modii's smart parking innovation is the ability for parking administrators to make better-informed decisions in regards to the allocation of parking at peak times. The technology will allow parking administrators to easily update parking information and rules at any given point, to help with road closures, city events and more, reducing confusion and frustration while making it easier for everyone to park safely and legally.
"We are excited to collaborate with Modii to implement the St. Augustine Parking Finder website,” said Reuben Franklin, Assistant City Manager. “This innovative digital platform will greatly enhance the parking experience for residents and tourists visiting our historic downtown area. By leveraging real-time parking information and cutting-edge technology, we can alleviate congestion, improve traffic flow, and ensure that everyone can find parking options easily.”
Through a collaborative effort that involved the expertise and support of Smart North Florida, a leading organization dedicated to advancing smart city initiatives, this innovative digital platform will greatly enhance the parking experience for residents and tourists visiting the historic downtown area.
“The deployment of Modii in the City of St. Augustine is a powerful example of public sector innovation. We’re excited about this launch and feel that it best exemplifies the collaborative approach to making smart communities a reality. We’re grateful that Smart North Florida played a small part in this partnership", said Clayton Levins, Executive Director at Smart North Florida.
