Cultural Trust unsnarls scramble for parking

“I must say, this is really neat,” trust president Kevin McMahon said of the “predictive parking” enhancement, developed by Robert Hampshire, assistant professor of operations research and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University. Predictions are based on three years of parking data and current event information. On Monday, the Washington, D.C.-based Intelligent Transportation Society of America presented the trust with a “Smart Solution Spotlight” award, given to groups that use technology to ease transportation problems.
