AIRPORT TO GET ELECTRONIC PARKING SIGNS
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Help is on the way for drivers trying to park at Philadelphia International Airport. New software is to be installed to guide motorists to open spaces in the parking garages.
Philadelphia Parking Authority spokeswoman Linda Miller says the airport has more than 17,000 parking spaces. Finding an empty one can be hard for people in a hurry. The new system will provide up-to-the-minute data to help the parking authority manage the parking inventory.
A $5.5 million contract with ACS Transport Solutions will include electronic direction boards pointing motorists to aisles where spaces are available. Signs at entrances on all levels will display the amount of spaces available on that level. A "full" sign will indicate there are no slots.
