How to create restrictions to simplify your parkers’ experience

Overview

The restrictions feature, when enabled, prohibits new parking sessions for the selected zone(s)/space(s).

 

Below are some examples of when you may want to use a restriction:

  • If there is active construction in a zone, you can restrict people from starting a parking session
  • If you want the zone to be free of charge for a set time, you can restrict people from paying for parking
  • If it’s a holiday and you want to give free parking

  • One Time Slots: active for a specific date range.
  • Recurring Slots: active on a recurring schedule.
    • Ex. Weekly from Sunday – Tuesday.
  • Choose to apply to Zones or Spaces.
  • Zones: Click one or multiple zones and drag over using the right arrow from the Available zones to Active zones in order to apply this restriction to a certain zone(s). NOTE: do NOT apply to both zone and spaces, or it will not work. You must select only one. If you’d like to apply to a full zone, drag the zone over. If you’d like to apply to a few spaces, select the zone in the drop-down within the Spaces section and pull over the spaces.
  • Spaces: Click one or multiple spaces and drag over using the right arrow from the Available spaces to Active spaces in order to apply this restriction to certain space(s). NOTE: do NOT apply to both zone and spaces, or it will not work. You must select only one. If you’d like to apply to a full zone, drag the zone over. If you’d like to apply to a few spaces, select the zone in the drop-down within the Spaces section and pull over the spaces.
