Coaster Station Smart Parking Pilot Project

Inefficient use of and access to parking at rail and transit stations contribute to highway congestion and suboptimal use of rail and transit systems. For example, parking problems are faced by COASTER, Metrolink, BART, and CalTrain. The scope of work describes all of the high-level tasks that would be needed to carry out Phase 1 (Feasibility Assessment) and Phase 2 (Pre-Implementation), including preliminary engineering and development of the project plans, monitoring, and evaluation tasks leaning up toward implementation of the Smart Parking-Pricing Pilot Project (Phase 3). Broad approximation for the deployment phase tasks are also included but may change depending on outcomes from Phases 1 and 2. In this work plan, key strategies, underlying support policies, and technologies will be examined and developed to address the complex operational requirements of the proposed Pilot Project. Selected for the Value Pricing Pilot Program (VPP) award, the Smart Parking-Pricing Pilot Project will be developed following the two-phase, systems engineering process to maximize the quality of the developed parking-pricing system. This is to ensure that the deployed system adequately meets the needs and objectives envisioned by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), SANDAG, Caltrans, and other partners (in accordance with US DOT Final Rule, Park 940-Intelligent Transportation System Architecture and Standards Section 940.11-Project Implementation).
