Parking Surveys

Parking Surveys

Understanding how parking is used by the public is key to providing parking schemes that work for all users and authorities. Our surveys enable the implementation or extension of a charging regime or installation of dynamic car park guidance systems in urban centres that reduce wasted time for drivers and vehicle pollution. The Traffic and Data Services reports provide detailed information about demand and usage patterns.

The Traffic and Data Services Division of Tracsis can support clients in implementing these solutions with car park surveys that establish demand, duration of stay, turnover and abuse of regulations or permit schemes. Using in-house developed data collection and analysis software, detailed results are provided for each vehicle parked. Summary information on a road, beat or zone basis is also presented dependent on client requirements.

Working with Transport Scotland during The Ryder Cup 2014

The Traffic and Data Services Division of Tracsis (when they were Sky High Technology) provided real time data of car park usage for Transport Scotland. Following the event we received this feedback from the delivery team:

To: Grant Wilson, Director, Tracsis Traffic and Data Services, Scotland.

“Just to say thank you for your teams efforts during the 2014 Ryder Cup. Transport Scotland has received a number of compliments for its part in the transport planning and management for the event.  I’d like to pass on our thanks to everyone involved at Sky High. The real-time streaming of data was particularly useful to keep tabs on how the car parks were operating. We were not without our challenges with the changes to car parking but we managed to overcome those by keeping everyone advised of car park operations. I think the same Footprint Analytics survey technology could be applied at other events with equal success.”

Our thanks to Tracsis Traffic and Data Services for your help in delivering one of Scotland’s 2014 Homecoming signature events.”
