City of Vacaville launches downtown parking availability app – The Vacaville Reporter

The City of Vacaville has partnered with JAPA Inc. to develop a smartphone application that will allow users to find downtown parking availability.

The real-time parking availability information applies to both on-street parking and municipal parking. The mobile app shows users where parking is available and navigates them to the available space.

Small pucks that detect the presence of a vehicle were installed by contractors last month. The system was installed based on feedback from residents and merchants regarding downtown parking.

The system consists of 12 public car parks, 853 car parks and on-street car parks. The app can be downloaded free of charge for iOS and Android. No personal information, account setup, or login is required to use the app.

“Vacaville is a vibrant community with a charming downtown that represents a unique destination for visitors including residents, business owners, local workers and tourists,” said Aaron Busch, Vacaville City Manager, in a press release. “Downtown is experiencing a renaissance as new stores open and investment increases.

“It is a city priority to support the Downtown Vacaville Business Improvement District and local businesses by ensuring residents and visitors can easily find free public parking as it is fast becoming a downtown destination.”

After installing the app, select “City of Vacaville” and you can immediately start searching for free parking spaces.

The parking garage availability system is one of several investments the City of Vacaville has made in the Downtown Core over the past year totaling more than $6.9 million.
