Trial run of Bengaluru's first smart parking facility to begin on Dec 16

Bengaluru, Dec 15 (IANS): The trial-run of the smart parking facility will begin here on Monday. "The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is setting up smart parking across Bengaluru for 3,300 four-wheelers and 10,000 two-wheelers," tweeted BBMP Commissioner B.H. Anil Kumar, here on Saturday.

The first such parking facility would be on Kasturba Road, said Kumar who inspected the facility with the Bengaluru Mayor M. Goutham Kumar.

Rs 30 would be charged for the first 50-minute parking. For the next hour onwards, users would have to pay Rs 30 per hour via cashless payment modes. The users will have to pay the parking charge within five minutes of parking a vehicle through a mobile app or a parking meter.

Kumar also posted pictures of the parking facility on Kasturba Road, with lanes marked and also a parking spot reserved for specially-abled people. "Dynamic signage has been installed along with one meter with rain shelter for transaction," he said.

The commissioner said a patrol vehicle had been assigned to supervise the parking facility and a control booth had been set up, linked to the CCTV cameras focusing on the parking spot to prevent theft and damage.

Mayor Kumar said the smart parking facility was one of the several projects undertaken to bust the traffic gridlocks in this tech hub. "This project is one among our several projects taken up to reduce the notorious traffic gridlock and also a finest example of how technology can solve our everyday problems," said the mayor.

    What an excellent idea. This is how traffic is controlled in America and most of the cities in advanced countries.

    Having had the experience of driving in India and particularly in Mangalore for over 78 years and in United States for over 40 years I can certainly share my experience about SAFE DRIVING AND SAFE PARKING.

    Presently having been appointed as The Chief Traffic Warden for Mangalore City, I am happy to share my views and ideas about SAFE DRIVING and SAFE PARKING with any authority concerned.

    Krishna, do not be sarcastic. What I understood is he is been driving for the past 78 years, out of that 40 years in USA. He said he has 78 years of traffic experience in Mangalore. He must've visited Mangalore each year or so. Look at his age (98) and he is doing traffic warden job, he certainly deserve respect for his contribution towards easing Mangalore traffic which you may have failed to do!
