The City of Dover, NH Selects OTI's EasyPark(TM) System
Dover is the First City in the Northeast of the U.S. to Select EasyPark for Public Parking Needs
ROSH PINA, Israel and ISELIN, N.J., Aug. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Track Innovations Ltd. ("OTI") (OTIV) announced today that its subsidiary, OTI America, Inc. was selected by the City of Dover, New Hampshire to deploy EasyPark(TM) electronic parking information and payment system for the City.
Dover, NH, with a population of 29,000, follows additional cities and colleges, such as UC Davis and the City of Austin, that have been adopting EasyPark as their parking payment solution.
EasyPark is currently used in municipalities around the world, including Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in Israel, Lille and Lyon in France, Turin in Italy, and Bermuda. EasyPark was also recently launched at the campus of the University of California Davis in the U.S.
Bill Simons, Parking Manager for the City of Dover noted that: "we are excited to add the availability of the EasyPark in-vehicle parking meter system as an enhancement to our paid parking program. Not only are there numerous benefits for visitors and employees who use EasyPark, but the city will experience extended life on the moving parts of our meters, lower supply costs; as well as reduced labor needs to retrieve, sort and deposit coins. The addition of other municipalities in the New England region will further enhance the benefits of the EasyPark system."
The EasyPark(TM) parking information and payment system is perfect for smaller towns allowing for:
- Multiple municipalities to use one device;
- Cost effective, modular implementation;
- No additional investment in infrastructure required;
- No maintenance or overhead costs like other systems;
- May provide additional revenues to the municipality;
- Easy and convenient solution for drivers.
EasyPark provides municipalities with a 'one-stop-shop' for all their parking information and payment needs. Designed to work within the budget constraints of today's municipalities, EasyPark allows municipalities to retain 100% of the parking revenues, while providing drivers with a convenient parking payment solution.
At the center of the system is the EasyPark in-vehicle device, which provides the most cost effective and secure solution for parking payment to date. By communicating with supporting information systems to provide real-time data for the driver and authorities, EasyPark eliminates the hassle for a driver to find a working meter, look for coins and then return to their vehicle with a receipt to place on their dashboard. EasyPark enables drivers to simply park and go.
"The unanimous decision by Dover's Parking Commission to implement EasyPark highlights the mounting recognition by municipalities across the U.S. of EasyPark's effectiveness in managing parking payment collection," said Oded Bashan, OTI's Chairman and CEO. "With the implementation of EasyPark in Austin underway, the adoption of EasyPark by Dover is another important milestone in the expansion of EasyPark within the U.S., as Dover will be the first city to utilize EasyPark in the Northeast."
"With many cities and towns looking for a simpler, more cost effective solution to manage their parking payment requirements, we anticipate that Dover will be a leader for the Northeast region and we look forward to working with other municipalities in the area that follow," Mr. Bashan concluded.
