Sarasota Helps Drivers Find Parking Spaces With Streetline

“Sarasota is a destination for tourism from across the state and around the world. This can create congestion,” said Mark Lyons, Parking Division Manager. “Parker will help both visitors and residents park efficiently, and help our economy grow.”

The city of Sarasota has partnered with Streetline to launch Parker™, a Parking Guidance App to Improve Mobility for Residents and Visitors by Highlighting Available Parking.

Sarasota drivers can now find available on-street parking spaces, as well as the locations of parking garages and lots, using Parker™ by Streetline, a mobile app for iPhone and Android smartphones.

Sarasota’s use of the Streetline system also means merchants can publish available parking near their location on their websites and encourage more tourists to visit their stores.

This will make the downtown more accessible and increase merchants’ business. Faster parking can also reduce carbon emissions in the city, reducing congestion, all while increasing pedestrian and cyclist safety.
