The City of Adelaide is excited to expand its car parking App to also show parking availability in the City of Unley and City of Marion.
The City of Adelaide has partnered with both Unley and Marion Council’s to expand the App’s range across the broader metropolitan Adelaide, using in-ground parking sensors supplied by Smart Parking.
Launched in 2019, the Park Adelaide App has been a helpful resource for city motorists, displaying real-time on-street parking availability and information, whilst also processing payments and allowing motorists to monitor their stay and extend their time.
City of Adelaide Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor believes this is an important demonstration in Council collaboration.
“This is just the beginning, the City of Adelaide is open to working with other Councils to further expand the area covered by the App to provide a unified experience for all motorists,” says Verschoor.
“The Park Adelaide App is part of our smart parking technology system providing reliable and timely information, positioning Adelaide as a leading smart city.”
City of Unley Mayor Michael Hewitson is equally excited about the expansion of the Park Adelaide App, with the smart technology introduced to the newly revitalised King William Road.
“It’s wonderful to be involved in a bigger-picture view of parking that includes the City of Adelaide and City of Marion in the creation of this app,” says Hewitson.
“This initiative is a game-changer.”
“Both have popular shopping, food and recreation destinations, and are places which many South Australians choose to visit regularly.”
Marion Council Mayor Kris Hanna said “the app will save time for motorists by directing them to the first available park.”
“Soon this handy app will be available for the 105 car parks at the Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre, which is under construction, and a further 20 at the Hallett Cove foreshore,” says Hanna.
The ‘Park Adelaide’ app is available to download from the Apple Store and Google Play Store.
