Split to be First in Croatia to have Unique Parking App

 

The city of Split is set to be the first in Croatia, and one of the few in Europe, to have a mobile application which lets drivers know where vacant parking spaces are in the city at any given moment.

Besides alerting to vacant parking spaces, the app will also let users pay for parking via credit card as well as having the ability to summons a tow truck by sending a photo, for things such as being blocked in.

A pilot project is set to start next month in Ulica (street) Domovinskog rata, and the app will be tested there, where there are around 40 parking spaces, for four weeks.

If the app works successfully then it will spread to cover the entire city.

Hina exclusive revealed from director of Split Parking, Marko Bartulić, that the app will be built by Split firm Profico.

Whilst sensors will be put in place at every parking place in Split, new LED lights and displays with information on available parking places will go up at off-street and underground parking lots.

Bartulić says that in Europe only France and Switzerland have similar technology available when it comes to parking apps.

“We will change the focus of the tow truck service also so that citizens via the app can call them and report illegal parking. We will try to make sure all entrances, zebras, bus stops and invalid parking spots remain vacant”, Bartulić said.
