Boston uses smart tech to adjust parking times

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has announced that the Boston Transportation Department will make changes to the maximum parking time allowed on certain streets in the Innovation District based on data gathered from smart sensor technology. The adjustments have been made to “ensure that parking is more closely aligned with true utilization, to spur higher turnover at on-street parking spaces, and to help to promote parking availability for patrons of area businesses,” the mayor’s announcement said.
