Now, mobile app to book public parking in Jaipur
There are plans to connect about 50 other parking spaces with the mobile app.
JAIPUR: The public parking facilities in Jaipur are set to become smarter, allowing people to book parking spots through a dedicated app from the comfort of their homes.
Following a successful trial at the Sawai Man Singh Hospital, the parking areas of Chaugan Stadium, Jaipuria Hospital, Surajpole Market, and Ramniwas Bagh will also undergo similar upgrades.
In addition to these locations, the Jaipur Municipal Corporation has plans to modernize approximately 40 other parking spaces. Under the Smart City project, a mobile app is under development to facilitate this transformation. With this app, city residents will be able to reserve parking spots in advance, making the process more convenient and efficient.
Parking facilities managed by both the Heritage Municipal Corporation and the Greater Municipal Corporation will be integrated into the app. Sensors have already been installed in the Kishanpole market, and further installations are planned for Johri Bazaar and Chaura Rasta.
Various malls and complexes throughout the city, along with their respective parking facilities, will also be linked to the app. Negotiations with numerous private parking lot operators are currently underway to make this possible.
In areas such as Walled City, Vaishali Nagar, and Vidyadhar Nagar, parking fees exceed Rs 100 for a mere three hours. However, the new app will enable customers to book parking spots at fixed rates up to one hour in advance, providing a more cost-effective solution.
Smart City Project consultant BD Sharma said that malls and complexes are slated to be connected to the Smart City app as well, offering city residents a seamless parking experience across multiple locations on a single platform.
Some of the places where public parking will be linked to the mobile app include:
- SMS Hospital parking
- Chaugan Stadium parking
- Jaipuria Hospital parking
- Surajpole Mandi parking
- Ramniwas Bagh parking
- Vidhyadhar Nagar parking
- Kishanpole Bazaar
- Johari Bazaar
