Smart parking project temporarily suspended

The pilot project for Yangon’s smart parking system has been suspended temporarily due to the outbreak of COVID-19, said Daw May Maw Thway, a Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) member.

“We suspended the project due to health and safety reasons during the COVID-19 outbreak, as people were supposed to volunteer for the project. We’ll be able to resume the smart parking project only when the situation returns to normal,” said Daw May May Thwal.

The smart parking pilot project was scheduled to run from March 22 to April 4, but was suspended after two days on March 24.

The smart parking system was implemented in Lanmadaw, Latha, Pabaedan, Kyauktada, Botahtaung and Pazundaung townships. An expression of interest notice was issued earlier this year, and three companies out of a total of 26 were selected to take part in the pilot programme.

The parking fees can be paid by cash or via an online payment system. There are three ways to pay for parking fees, by using the following apps: Parking Yangon app, and the Smart Parking@Yangon and Flowbird apps.

Fees range from K200 to K500 per hour according to the designated parking spaces, which are demarcated with either red, yellow or green lines. The hourly fees are also displayed on the signboards of each street corner.

Availability of spaces can also be checked using the parking apps, and the streets will be monitored to check that drivers are parking correctly.

Parking officials will collect fees from motorists, including governmental vehicles, in six downtown townships in Yangon to reduce traffic congestion, according to an announcement made by the YCDC on March 3.
