Trendy northern California city San Ramon is installing a smart parking system from local company McCain.
The city choses McCain’s Optipark parking guidance and wayfinding system in the City Center Bishop Ranch to replace an existing nonfunctioning system.
City Center Bishop Ranch is the new heart of downtown San Ramon, nurturing community, commerce and culture. The four-level parking facility has room for 915 cars. Each level has two entry and two exit lanes.
Optipark captures data through camera sensors, then delivers parking availability and location information to drivers using existing LED signs.
Optipark was selected for its accuracy in capturing parking space data through cameras and software and being able to disseminate that information to third parties or through third party apps and web sites. With data captured revealing over 99% accuracy, it can increase both parking space use and visitor satisfaction. 
“We are pleased to see how quickly the number of Optipark parking guidance systems installations are growing as word-of-mouth spreads between cities and parking facility owners,” said David Leingang, regional sales specialist at McCain.  ”Our customers love that Optipark’s detection accuracy has a 99% guarantee. And their customers appreciate finding a parking space quickly and efficiently. It’s an easy win-win for all.”
McCain creates intelligent transportation systems to increase parking facility occupancy and boost revenue by directing drivers to available parking. Optipark and Wayfinding are tailored to the needs and budgets of each facility or city and are comprised of cameras, variable message signs, city-wide wayfinding, reports, actionable insights through accurate data collection, integration and open data sharing for mobile apps.
