Fybr Selected as Finalist in Columbus Parking Technology Pilot



St. Louis, MO (September 4, 2019) Fybr is proud to announce being selected as one of three finalists for a smart parking pilot with the City of Columbus, Ohio. The City is testing Parking Space Availability Technology to provide accurate, real-time parking data in its ParkColumbus mobile app, powered by ParkMobile.

After a rigorous evaluation, Fybr was selected to install over 100 in-ground parking sensors to provide real-time occupancy data of on-street parking in the vibrant Short North Arts District. “We are excited to be a participant in this smart parking pilot with America’s Smart City,” said Bob Glatz, CEO of Fybr. “Given our history with large-scale parking sensor deployments, Fybr is confident in our ability to meet or exceed the city’s expectations.”

Additionally, Fybr will be showcasing the extensibility of the Fybr Smart City Platform by deploying additional sensors to monitor vehicle activity at bus stops, loading zones, and air quality. Installation of hardware begins in mid-September with evaluations starting on October 1 and running through the end of the year.
