With the introduction of Woonerf, the Hartford Parking Authority’s goal is to create the foundation for a mobile app that will ultimately provide one total parking solution for residents and visitors. Woonerf. which loosely means “living street” in Dutch, will allow motorists to conveniently pay for metered parking with no added fees, extend their time, and receive warnings that their time is about to expire. It will also provide merchants the opportunity to validate metered parking for their customers, allow motorists to set up an e-wallet to purchase parking at a discount, as well as allow them to purchase an additional hour if they are in danger of receiving a meter citation. HPA specifically designed the app to allow for future functionality including off-street parking and information related to other modes of travel, such as bicycle and short-term car rentals.
