Councillors Susan Press and Jane Scullion are working together with AppyWay, a smart parking company, in a bid to improve traffic conditions in Halifax town centre.
With the new initiative, drivers who need to park in Halifax will be able to use the AppyParking app in finding parking spaces. This helps them check where to park before they start their journey. The app will also give them the option to use cash-free payments.
AppyWay Founder and CEO Dan Hubert said: “We’re so excited to bring our Smart City Parking solution to the streets of Halifax.”
“More residents, businesses and visitors can start saving time finding and paying for parking.”
Councillor Press said: “By utilising this new technology, drivers can plan ahead and see which areas of Halifax are busy for parking and where has available spaces.”
“People will have the option to pay through the app, saving the need to find the correct change or worry about staying over the length of their ticket.”
Councillor Scullion added: “Using the app can help reduce congestion caused by people driving around town looking for parking, reducing engine idling and therefore improving air quality.”
“As well as the practical uses, this app has environmental benefits.”
“Following the roll out of the trial scheme in Halifax this year, we will also explore cashless parking provisions in the surrounding towns in the borough.”
