Parking Access Revenue Control Systems

PARCS is an initiative to replace aging parking equipment in 22 city-owned facilities with modern technology. PARCS is a combination of equipment and software that runs a parking facility, such as ticket machines, gate arms, payment machines and camera systems. The new system will be a significant operational upgrade from our existing 16-year old equipment. New software and hardware will:

  • Improve operations and customer service
  • Replace signage & reviewing traffic flow / operation procedures
  • Make parking easier and more efficient for customers
  • Reduce fraud and handle cases of missing or lost tickets using license plate recognition technology
  • Improve auditing and credit card security to protect customers
  • Improve safety for high pedestrian safety areas with flashing light and audible alarm as vehicles exit facilities
  • Enable real-time data collection, which helps with the implementation of dynamic pricing and universal validation to create a more efficient parking experience for customers
