Truck Specialized Parking Services, Inc. (TSPS) is pleased to announce the award of a contract from the state of Colorado to provide real-time parking availability information to truckers traveling through the state. The contract will cover public rest areas as well as selected private truck stops, creating the largest network of connected parking facilities in the United States. The contract includes options for TSPS to eventually provide a reservation service as well as improvement to the current chaining activities in the higher elevations through the delivery of better parking availability information.
TSPS will provide this real-time parking information to variable message highway signs on I-70 and I-25 and through mobile apps, in-cab systems, and websites. The first installations will be operational in the second quarter 2017 and will expand over several phases of implementation during the next three years. The total value of the contract is projected at $10M.
QUOTE from Colorado DOT: “Colorado continues as a leader in deploying technologies making our transportation systems safer and more reliable. By addressing the commercial vehicle parking issue with TSPS’ proven technology and services, we can quickly begin to reduce the cost of freight mobility in the state, reduce emissions from commercial vehicles and improve safety for the traveling public in the state.”
TSPS President Rick Warner echoes these goals, “We applaud the vision and energy of the Colorado DOT in addressing the trucking industry’s concern about parking. We are excited about the opportunity to be on the CDOT team supporting the deployment of its RoadX strategy.”
Truck Specialized Parking Services, Inc. (TSPS) is the first company to use ITS technologies to deliver a network of connected parking facilities to deliver accurate real-time availability information to truck drivers. Additionally, the TSPS parking platform also has the ability to support reservations at specific parking facilities and back office management support for secure parking locations.
