Fort Lauderdale Transforms Curbside Management with Mobility Management Platform
City partners with Passport to manage its entire mobility operation in one centralized system
Fort Lauderdale (Feb. 13, 2019) — Today, the City of Fort Lauderdale announced a partnership to implement Passport’s mobility platform, an innovative system designed to transform municipal mobility management. With the announcement, Fort Lauderdale becomes the first city in the United States to procure and select a partner to implement this cutting-edge solution to manage its entire parking operation.
Fort Lauderdale’s Transportation and Mobility Department selected Passport, the leading mobility platform, to power its parking ecosystem. Passport’s technology will enable Fort Lauderdale to bridge data from previously unconnected systems to make smarter, more strategic decisions about transportation, with the ultimate goal of creating a better experience for residents and visitors. The platform is capable of connecting enforcement technology, digital permits, and processing payments to allow for real-time reporting and rate setting. Passport’s integration also has the potential to implement tools, including dynamic pricing and predictive availability, to maximize operations and make Fort Lauderdale a more vibrant, livable city with improved parking and mobility.
“Linking our entire mobility system under a single umbrella provides us with a unique opportunity to scale our operations, welcome new modes of transport, and make data-driven decisions to improve traffic flow, enhance accessibility, and bring us closer to realizing our vision of becoming a fully-connected, multi-modal city of the future,” said Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean J. Trantalis. “Through our partnership with Passport, we are providing a roadmap and establishing an example of smart mobility management for other forward-thinking cities to follow.”
In addition to connecting Passport-powered products, such as its digital permit and parking enforcement systems, the platform is also able to plug in other parking and mobility providers, which will allow the city to streamline management and process payments in an increasingly complex environment. Passport has processed nearly $1 billion in transportation-related payments to date.
The Passport platform will give Fort Lauderdale unprecedented access to data and will centralize all forms of mobility in one place. With Passport, the city will be able to:
- Assess real-time parking demand
- Expand the availability of digital payments throughout the mobility ecosystem
- Enable predictive availability capabilities for parking facilities
- Optimize parking inventory through dynamic pricing
- Enforce mobility rules, rates and regulations through a real-time compliance platform
- Enable management of emerging modes of transportation through a central platform
“Through our experience working with hundreds of cities worldwide, we’ve seen the challenges they face with siloed operations, legacy technology, and purchasing cycles that lag the industry’s pace of innovation,” said David Singletary, vice president at Passport. “Fort Lauderdale is breaking down walls and implementing a more integrated, connected, and future-proof system that will improve efficiencies now while being adaptable for whatever comes next.”
The City of Fort Lauderdale has made a new digital parking permit feature available for all of our neighbors.
The digital permitting feature will allow you to apply for a Residential Beach Parking Permit online. Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by one of our parking customer service representatives. If the application is approved, then you will receive an email directing you back to our parking portal to pay for your permit. Once you pay for your permit, your account will be updated to show that you have purchased a Residential Beach Parking Permit, which is valid for one year. You no longer have to apply for, renew, or pick up your permit from Parking Services. You can do everything online and your license tag now serves as your permit.
For more information on this feature, please contact parking customer service at
954-828-3700 or firstname.lastname@example.org
