Parking occupancy changes constantly, so why do so many parking leaders still make long-term strategy decisions based on one or two days of data out of the whole year?
Periodic ground-truth data collection may be the norm, but the tiny snapshot of information it provides can’t show you what’s happening in your city day to day or help you identify patterns and trends over time.
If you want to turn your parking program from a guessing game into a science, you need continuous, up-to-date, and accurate data, and Turnstone can make that happen.
The Turnstone platform is powered by our advanced occupancy model—a learning algorithm trained on ground-truth data, calibrated for zone-by-zone behaviors, and continuously tuned using new information—which analyzes parking transactions to predict real-world parking occupancy year-round.
Turnstone’s occupancy model provides automatic insights into what’s happening across your city at all times, giving you the continuous occupancy data you need to evaluate and adapt your parking strategy more often and make crucial decisions, including rate changes, in days rather than months.
Once your data has been analyzed and organized, our parking dashboard takes it and presents it in a way that’s easy to understand, using graphs, maps, charts, and other visualizations to tell a story and help you demonstrate value to stakeholders.
