Smart mobility involves deploying new technology to move people and goods through our city in faster, safer, cleaner, more affordable and more equitable ways.
Austin Transportation seeks to foster creative, mutually beneficial partnerships to carry out real-world testing of smart mobility technology, such as shared, autonomous, connected and electric vehicles.
See below for calls for partnerships, resources for potential public-private partnerships, and current initiatives.
Austin Transportation has partnered with Municipal Parking Services to deploy six smart parking meters in two locations: West Sixth Street and Colorado Street. The demonstration project will operate for eight weeks, from July 30 through Sept. 24. The purpose of this demonstration is to test smart parking meter technology and collect data about parking turnover rates and revenue. Residents and visitors can pay for the parking spaces using cash or credit/debit cards.
The City of Austin and Capital Metro have teamed up to create a Smart Mobility Roadmap that lays out a proactive and deliberate approach to new mobility capabilities that will ensure a future that is equitable, affordable, prosperous and data-driven.
