Goa authorities announce paid parking app to ease congestion

This move aims to regulate parking demand, incentivize turnover, and generate revenue for urban infrastructure development.

In a move aimed at addressing the perennial issue of parking congestion in urban areas, the Goa government has announced plans to introduce a novel solution: a dedicated Android app that will assist residents and tourists in locating available parking spaces across the city.

Set to be launched soon, the app will utilize satellite positioning technology to provide real-time updates on parking availability, enabling users to navigate to the nearest open spot with ease. Apart from ease, the app will help users locate free spots of parking across residential and commercial areas throughout Goa. It has also been stated that the app will be available on all leading app stores, and will roll out city-by-city starting with Panjim, Margao, and so forth.

Speaking on the initiative, Rohan Khaunte, Minister for Information Technology in Goa, emphasized the government’s commitment to leveraging technology for the betterment of urban mobility. “With the launch of this innovative parking app, we aim to streamline the parking experience for citizens and visitors alike, reducing traffic congestion and enhancing overall convenience,” stated Khaunte.

Echoing these sentiments, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant highlighted the importance of embracing digital solutions to tackle urban challenges. “As we work towards transforming Goa into a smart city, initiatives such as the parking app exemplify our dedication to harnessing technology for the benefit of all,” remarked Sawant.

In addition to the introduction of the parking app, the government has also announced plans to implement a paid parking system in commercial areas across Panjim, Margao, Vasco, and Mhapasa by the end of 2024. This move aims to regulate parking demand, incentivize turnover, and generate revenue for urban infrastructure development.

The introduction of the parking app and the implementation of paid parking represent significant steps towards addressing the longstanding parking woes in Goa.

By providing users with real-time information on parking availability and introducing measures to manage demand effectively, the government seeks to alleviate congestion, improve traffic flow, and enhance the overall urban experience for residents and tourists alike.
