Wherever you go in our towns and cities, parking is a problem, causing pollution, congestion and frustration, often drawing criticism from business and citizens and with an increasing population the problem is only going to get worse.

Meanwhile, town and city centre businesses are struggling to adapt to the impact of online retail and diminishing footfall, whilst lacking the tools to maximise the benefits of their physical presence, in this increasingly digital world.

As Uber optimises taxis, and AirBnB optimises rooms, Ethos Smart, with £1.2M funding from Innovate UK’s Future Cities Solutions initiative and in collaboration with 12 cities/boroughs will be tackling these issues. Its new digital platform will optimise city parking, delivering benefits to the citizen, the environment and the local economy.
