Central Budapest Tests Free Parking Space App
Budapest’s downtown fifth district is testing a parking sensor solution delivered by Vodafone Magyarország that could reduce congestion, district mayor Péter Szentgyörgyvölgyi told the press.

The system will operate with 135 sensors until the end of the year, after which time it could be expanded.

Motorists can use the sensors to locate an empty parking space using a mobile application and can use the same application to pay their parking fee.

Mr. Szentgyörgyvölgyi noted that motorists looking for a parking spot account for 30% of traffic in the district.
