Harrison Hot Springs: A Seasonal Parking Success

Harrison Hot Springs.jpg

Successful Paid Parking Pilot
In 2016, the Village of Harrison Hot Springs chose to experiment with the implementation of a paid parking system during its busy summer months. The Village chose Precise ParkLink, an industry expert, to lead the pilot project with hopes that a paid parking system would be given a fair shot within the tight-knit community.

Harrison Hot Springs and the surrounding area offer great hiking, biking, golfing, fishing and other water activities, heritage sites, family friendly attractions, and more.  Sandy beaches hug the coast of Harrison Lake – the largest body of fresh water in Southwestern B.C.

Challenges and Goals
During the summer months, Harrison Hot Springs is a tourist hotspot.  The limited beachside parking available to residents and tourists, as well as the numerous outdoor activities and heritage sites makes the village an ideal location for parking services during the summer season. However, when it came to parking, Harrison Hot Springs faces the challenge of peak versus low seasons, and of course, the worry of implementing the village’s first-ever paid parking system.

The Result
With Precise ParkLink’s help, the village’s paid parking trial was a success. To date, Harrison Hot Springs enforces paid parking only during the summer months and has partnered with Precise ParkLink for the last three years. Precise ParkLink has been working with Harrison Hot Springs to develop a parking program that works well for their B.C. community, and has introduced effective initiatives, such as Parking Ambassadors, who welcome and assist motorists.

Precise ParkLink is proud to be parking partners with The Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

Metro Vancouver recently ran a segment on how the City of Coquitlam is expanding it's infrastructure to make it easier for people to park their cars, rides their bikes, and charge their phones while on the move— and the power of the sun is playing a big part. 

Metro Vancouver began the segment by highlighting Precise ParkLink’s solar-powered Pay-by-License Plate DG7 parking meter, which operate completely off the grid, making them entirely carbon-neutral.  “All of the city’s parking meters are solar powered and cellular connected in real time,” said Dan Mooney, the City’s Transportation Manager. “We have a lot of data and statistics for matters such as parking enforcement. There is no energy consumption at all from these parking meters and they are very portable, too. So, when we’ve had to relocate them, it’s a very easy process.”

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) in partnership with Precise ParkLink has developed a new program to help reduce patient and visitor anxiety about where to park and what entrance to use when arriving at the health centre. Entrance Attendants will now welcome patients and visitors outside the Main and Atrium entrances in an effort to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at entrance roundabouts.

Attendants will help direct cars to the most appropriate entrance based on their reason for visiting the health centre. They will also explain parking pass and payment options, and be able to troubleshoot parking related issues.  

This program is one of many ongoing projects at RVH aimed at improving patient and visitor experience and also to reduce idling vehicles at entrances.
