WHAT IS IT?
ParkCBRegionis the only app to provide information on ‘real-time’ parking availability in the Canberra region and the ability to pay for parking with a link to ParkMobile.
As part of the ACT Government’s Smart Parking systems, parking space sensors have been activated in 460 on-street and off-street parking bays in the Manuka district to ease traffic congestion and help guide drivers to available car parking bays. These include paid-for, free, covered, open, and disability parking spots. Five LED street signs also direct drivers to location-specific parking bays. Other areas across the wider Canberra region are also introducing this technology will automatically become usable from this app.
Using a simple red, amber, and green system, the ParkCBRegion app provides real-time information (updated multiple times each minute) on where drivers are more likely to find an available car parking space. It can even interact with most satellite-navigation apps, directing motorists to their chosen parking location.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
To use ParkCBRegion, drivers need a smartphone with a data connection (WiFi or a 3G/4G).
Users can simply tap a map marker on the screen, to view information such as the number of available spaces, hours of operation, hourly tariffs, and whether a space is designated for disabled drivers.
Car parking bays can be located by either general search terms (Manuka) or a specific address, such as Bougainville Street. Search results will also provide alternative parking spaces near the preferred destination, along with specific directions.
Payment can be made through the app with a link to ParkMobile.
WHERE WILL IT OPERATE NOW?
The following on-street bays are covered by the ParkCBRegionapp:
Furneaux (between Canberra Avenue and Murray Crescent)
