Sharing Excellence in Parking & Mobility Management

Transportation Demand Management

Parking Bulks Up, Adds MaaS: SpotHero and Moovit Announce Partnership

Those awaiting the imminent death of parking might want to keep the champagne corked a bit longer.

Reading breathless media accounts, you might be tempted to throw on a black veil, light some candles and make sure the funeral director is on the speed dial. Swarmed by biting Ubers, overdosing on parking taxes, strangled by congestion pricing and, of course, trampled by the oncoming hordes of autonomous vehicles, the parking industry is surely doomed to death by a thousand cuts.

But sometimes “getting cut” is a good thing, no?

Parking may indeed be disappearing, but it is not dying. Rather, parking is becoming a transparent component of a seamless journey to and from the mobility consumer’s destination of choice.

Like a bodybuilder, parking is shedding some fat and adding some muscle, in this case MaaS – “Mobility-as-a-Service”.

Parking professionals are realizing that while managing parking is sometimes akin to being marooned on a desert island, building bridges can end the isolation.

Actually Count the Money

Actually Count the Money - Everything going into – or out of – a count room should be counted. The vault at the failed FNBE is equivalent to our parking and transportation count rooms. A manager or supervisor should have been checking a count employee (like Ms. Myers) before and after the count to verify that no extraneous and unnecessary items (say, like baggies and tape) are going into the count room and nothing unauthorized (say, like cash) is exiting the count room.

Road Diets and Parking

A Road Diet is a transportation planning technique that aims to reduce or rechannel traffic on roadways and create space for alternative forms of transportation, such as cycling, walking and public transit. A Road Diet is primarily achieved by eliminating traffic lanes or reducing their width. Road Diets can also create "new" parking.Continue reading

New “Parkcast” Coming Your Way: ReinventingParking.org Adds Podcast

The H2H2H Foundation is pleased to continue its longstanding support for the work of prolific author, blogger, consultant and academic Dr. Paul Barter of ReinventingParking.org and ReinventingTransport.org.

Hailed by Parking Magazine as a candidate to bear the mantle as “the next Don Shoup”, Paul is Australian by origin and now resides and teaches in Singapore.

He has consulted worldwide with numerous public and private entities on parking policy and has originated a number of groundbreaking thought pieces on parking management. These have included his concepts on “Walkable Parking” and the “RESPOND” model of parking management, which you can read more about on his website.

Paul is revving up his outreach with a new podcast slated to begin very soon. Anyone interested in parking policy on a municipal level would benefit from tuning in. Learn more and sign up here:

The podcast is free; however, we urge you to consider support of this nonprofit effort to spread best practices in parking and mobility management.

And if you are involved in urban transportation and mobility management, don’t forget to peruse his seminal work at ReinventingTransport.org.

Sue Flack Joins H2H2H Foundation’s LatAm Outreach Team

(En español, abajo)

The H2H2H Foundation proudly welcomes Sue Flack, an expert in parking and transportation, as a new member of our cutting-edge translation team. A native English speaker, she resides in Nottingham (the city of Robin Hood) in the United Kingdom (UK).

Sue originally trained as a land use planner, but soon broadened her perspective to include both transport and planning in London and Nottingham. She holds Masters’ degrees in Business Administration (MBA) and in Urban and Regional Planning.

Leading the development of Nottingham’s ground-breaking workplace parking levy (a charge on workplace parking, which provides finance for sustainable transport initiatives and discourages car commuting), Sue later became Director of Planning and Transport at Nottingham City Council. She has also consulted on international projects and since 2016 has advised local authorities in the UK on transport strategies.

In 2017, she was awarded a degree in Modern Language Studies (Spanish and French) and is currently enjoying a part-time, post-graduate course in Translation Studies.

Sue’s unique combination of transport and parking expertise, alongside language and translation abilities, will add to the resources of H2 and play an important role in its worldwide expansion.
