Municipalities that have issues with heavy traffic in town centres often take into consideration how public transport could be supported and ways of relieving parking centrally and simplifying it in outlying areas. That’s why Karlovy Vary now boasts four new park and ride sites, complete with CROSS APTM payment terminals for purchasing tickets for public transport, and new CrossPark barrier parking systems.
The aim of the Karlovy Vary project was to provide superior parking services for visitors to the town. Park and ride car parks are an effective way of linking private transport with public transit. At CROSS we endeavour to ensure that the parking systems we offer are comprehensive enough to cover the needs of large cities and small communities alike.
Four CROSS APTM payment terminals were supplied in total, each one serving a different car park in the town, which are also able to dispense tickets for public transport. TOP UP cards were successfully implemented, the delivery additionally including arrival and exit terminals and equipment for licence plate recognition and gauging the heights of vehicles. Another new feature comprises LED panels that direct drivers to vacant parking spaces, while simultaneously simplifying arrival at the facilities. Our feature-rich CrossPark parking system has been put in place, permitting a single, central control room to monitor and control operations. The staff there additionally benefit from oversight of off-street parking through Invipo, the Smart City platform.
Karlovy Vary is a shining example of a town that has dealt with mobility in a smart way. The duty of employees at CROSS involved in R&D and production is to come up with products and platforms that enable a municipality to opt for a solution which matches the individual demands of a project. As a consequence, our high-quality, Czech-made products with advanced software and expert installation by experienced professionals shall continue to gain ground in the transport sector.
