Nicosia Municipality launches smart parking app

Nicosia Municipality has launched a parking app to help drivers find available spots, as part of the city’s efforts to implement greener and more accessible policies.

The ‘Smart Parking Nicosia City’ application is co-funded by the EU Smart City project and is described as a comprehensive information system for drivers, a Municipality announcement says.

It provides real-time updates on available parking places within municipal parking lots and the city centre. A map also shows users where other empty parking spots are available and allows them to pay for parking.

Further features include routes based on the fastest estimated arrival time.

Parking sensors detecting the presence of a vehicle will send updates to the ‘smart city’ central management platform, which then sends data back into the app.

The app also provides filters when searching for spots, such as parking spots for people with disabilities, loading/unloading zones, and places with chargers for electric and hybrid cars.

The municipality described the benefits of the app as “significant”, including but not limited to easing traffic, reducing emissions, and preventing illegal parking.

The municipality also teamed up with Ablebook, an online platform providing services and information for people with disabilities and vulnerable groups, as part of the ‘Smart Parking Nicosia City’ app effort.
