Virtually all schools, especially those located in urban areas, have parking problems. I'm learning a lot by talking to San Francisco principals and headmasters. Parents and other visitors get frustrated that they can never find a spot anywhere near the school, causing them to be late for important events and meetings. Traffic congestion is always an issue during drop-off and pick-up periods. Teachers and other staff often find it difficult to find a spot for the day, or have to move their cars periodically throughout the day. It's energizing to contemplate how our tools, now under development, can resolve these issues.
There are also opportunities to take space controlled by a school and make it available to third parties for parking during off-hours or over the summer. Some schools will inevitably find themselves strategically positioned in the path of valuable parking revenue. We want to show them the way.
