Xerox Develops LA Parking, Traffic Solution Through DOT Grant

Site: ddot.dc.gov

Xerox and the Los Angeles Transportation Department deployed a new parking program in the city Monday.

The company said it launched a one-year pilot that includes a real-time parking guidance system, new parking meter technology and a parking management system funded with a $15 million grant from the U.S. Transportation Department.

LA ExpressPark went live on Monday in an effort to help Los Angeles reduce air pollution, increase limited parking availability and reduce traffic congestion.

The program took years of planning and is designed to help citizens find and pay for parking, said David Amoriell, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Xerox’s transportation, central and local government sector.

Xerox said it will use its congestion management tolling algorithm, its public transit application and application of transportation data to find patterns and solutions for traffic management.
