The civic body of Mumbai has introduced a smart feature to its mobile app to help motorists locate authorised parking slots across the city. The move follows the BMC’s decision to impose hefty fines for illegal parking. The android-based devices can be used to download the app and check parking lots in a radius between 500mt and 5kms.
The feature – smart parking – will guide users to reach a parking booth in the shortest time. The BMC has 26 public parking lots in the city. Apart from the nearest parking space, motorists can also check the capacity of a parking lot for light vehicles, two-wheelers and heavy vehicles. They can also check parking fees for 12 hours to the monthly charge.
Around 3,500 parking spaces at BEST’s 24 depots have also been opened for the public during daytime. There are 325 slots in the bus undertaking’s 36 terminals for round-the-clock parking.
