Gold for Parking Startup in Colorado Smart Cities Challenge!


Spot Parking is amongst the winners of a prestigious smart city challenge in Colorado designed to find innovative solutions to best recover from the effects of the pandemic.

The Colorado Smart Cities Alliance Revive! Challenge received proposals from around the world.

Spot’s innovative smart city technology was selected to provide smart digital curbs for cities in Colorado, reflecting the ever-changing nature of how we use our curbs since the pandemic.

“The rise in urban freight deliveries, curbside dining, and loading zones since the pandemic has made us look at the curb as more than just a parking space” said CEO and Founder Elizabeth Zealand.

Through the deployment of Spot’s innovative and advanced parking and mobility solutions, cities in the US will be able to maximize the use of the curb to better serve the needs of their communities.

“This continues Spot’s investment into the US and we are grateful to have worked with the Colorado Smart City Alliance on this innovative project” added Zealand.

Spot has offices in Denver and Los Angeles and this win adds to the already impressive list of clients, which include CampusParc at The Ohio State University”.

Spot will now begin the collaboration with smart cities in Colorado to digitize the curb for smarter, greener and safer urban mobility.
