Fybr, a platform providing real-time parking data, was selected to move forward with an expansion of a pilot program in Columbus. According to a release, the city is testing parking space availability technology to provide accurate, real-time parking data via the ParkColumbus mobile app.
After a rigorous evaluation and a three-month trial, Fybr’s Smart Parking Solution was selected to provide real-time data for on-street parking information in the Short North Arts District. After a successful pilot period, Columbus now plans to expand the program with the deployment of additional parking sensors.

“While we have the utmost confidence in our technology, it is nice to have the City of Columbus come to the same conclusion when our platform was tested against other technologies,” said Bob Glatz, CEO of Fybr.
Fybr says its parking sensors offers a highly accurate, low-cost solution for detecting vehicles in a wide range of spaces—including on-street, in surface lots, and garages. Simply put, the sensors can provide drivers with a real-time view of available parking spaces.
The next leg of Fybr’s pilot test will run for 3 to 6 months. If successful, the City may continue to expand the program.
