Displays at Garage Entrances Show Real-Time Available Parking Spaces 
Displays at the entrances to City garages tell motorists how many empty spaces are currently in the garage.

It's frustrating to pull into a parking garage and slowly climb to the top level in a caravan of cars, only to find that the garage is full and there's nowhere to park.

That shouldn't happen anymore to drivers parking in City-owned downtown garages.

A year ago, sensors that count available parking spaces in real time were installed in the Market Square Garage. The same space-counting system in recent weeks has been installed in the State Street, Locust Street and Main Street garages.

The technology allows a motorist approaching a garage to see a digital display showing the number of available parking spaces at that minute. So the driver will know whether to pull in, or whether to park in another location.
