New app is part of a region-wide public education effort highlighting the variety of transportation

options available to get to downtown and Golden 1 Center.

 

The City of Sacramento continues its commitment to implement advanced technology in order to

enhance the user experience by partnering with Parkeon, a global leader of urban mobility

technology, to design the SacPark app.

The app, which will be available early Fall 2016, will make it easier to locate a parking spot,

purchase parking in advance, provide information on space availability, and obtain real-time

traffic information.

The launch of the new app will be integrated into a public education campaign and online

navigation tool that will highlight information on various transportation options when traveling

to downtown and Golden 1 Center, including: light rail, ride share, and bicycles.

“The collaboration with Parkeon symbolizes Sacramento’s commitment to innovation and is

one piece of our overall transportation strategy,” said Matt Eierman, City of Sacramento

Parking Manager. “The new technology will direct motorists to available parking and improve

our transportation management during a time of increased activity in the Central City and the

opening of Golden 1 Center.”

The City will be the first U.S. city to implement Parkeon’s newest Path to Park Technology,

which has been successfully deployed in France and Belgium.

“We are thrilled about the partnership with the City of Sacramento,” said Bertrand Barthelemy,

CEO of Parkeon. “Our global expertise in urban mobility and mobile device technology will

provide citizens with a seamless parking experience, and will improve overall traffic

management in the downtown Sacramento.”

The City and its partners are committed to making the Sacramento experience convenient and

pleasant. The SacPark app will be available before the first event at Golden 1 Center to

purchase parking in advance.
