- Charlotte, N.C.
Analyzing the Parking Data

Automotus, an emerging innovator in curb management technology, and Passport, the leader in unified parking and curb management, are partnering to transform how cities manage their curbspace. By combining Passport’sindustry-leading platform and Automotus’ first-of-its-kind computer vision technology, the companies are providing customers with a more holistic view of their curb and unlocking seamless workflows to support safer, more livable communities.

More than 800 cities and private operators across North America trust Passport’s platform to power and operate mobile pay parking, parking enforcement, digital permitting, payments and more. This collaboration will provide Passport clients with access to Automotus’ cutting-edge computer vision technology and Automotus clients with access to Passport’s comprehensive suite of parking and mobility solutions.

In addition to our technology, Passport’s end-to-end parking and mobility management solutions provides our clientbase with a cohesive view of how vehicles are moving throughout their city streets,” says Jordan Justus, Automotus Co-Founder and CEO. “We are excited to partner with Passport and hundreds of cities across the U.S. to connect the dots on curb activity, reduce congestion and support safer streets.

Additionally, multimodal curb and traffic activity data collected through Automotus’ computer vision technology as well as curbside automations are now offered to Passport’s clientbase. The technology, which blurs faces and anonymizes data, can help facilitate numerous goals depending on a city’s needs, including managing loading zones, incentivizing EV adoption, improving parking compliance, generating and analyzing parking and traffic data, and more.

There is very little knowledge of what is happening in loading zones or other places where commercial vehicles park, making it difficult for city leaders to create policy that is impactful and effective,” says Jason Sutton, Passport SVP of Curbside Solutions. “By joining forces with Automotus, we can provide even more insight into curb activity, empowering cities with the data needed to evaluate patterns, identify opportunities and implement policies.

Automotus and Passport already share a portfolio of municipal clients who are in the early stages of implementing the joint Passport and Automotus technologies. This partnership will open up a wide range of opportunities for cities and organizations across the country to implement a comprehensive approach to their curb management needs, obtain valuable data to optimize their operations, and support the evolving parking and curb demand and expectations of the communities they serve.
