With 133,000 inhabitants that receives more than 2 million tourists a year, this seasonal influx complicated access to the Ibiza's centre and caused congestion of vehicles looking for parking in La Marina. This affected the well-being of the population and even had a negative impact on trade and the image of the area. The project that we implemented for the local government sought to: -Speed up parking in La Marina. -Reduce vehicle flow to the centre. -Improve the quality of life and satisfaction of residents and tourists. -Promote the shopping area of the centre.
Ibiza is an island with 133,000 inhabitants that receives more than 2 million tourists a year, mostly in the summer months.
1) Real-time information U-Spot sensors were deployed on 85 parking spaces in La Marina. The data captured in real time is transformed into useful information that speeds up parking. 2) Improves accessibility and parking in the centre Sensors were placed on the parking spaces of the sector of the Marina and an information panel installed at the access to d’Annibal St., so drivers are informed of the availability of spaces, avoiding unnecessary vehicle access in case it is full. 3) Improves citizen satisfaction and image of the Ibiza The solution introduced has optimised parking management and enabled quicker access to the centre. Citizens are satisfied because they no longer waste time looking for parking, suffer less stress and have an improved quality of life. They have returned once again to the centre to shop, boosting local trade.
