Parking Beat Survey

Want to understand how a parking beat survey can help you?

If you are planning a parking scheme or seeking understanding of your current parking situation a parking beat survey will provide core information. The survey can provide information on occupancy data alone or can be combined with parking duration analysis too.

Parking occupancy surveys: these surveys can be carried out either on-street or off-street and determine the volume of parked vehicles over a period of time broken down into bay or restriction type.

Parking duration surveys: these surveys give you an understanding on how long vehicles are parking in a particular place. They will record the VRM characteristics of each vehicle so we can analyse the data and report on how long vehicles are parked and in which periods in the day they use the parking facility. We can determine user type based on the number of times vehicles are observed, e.g. short stay, long stay, resident or commuter.
