Consider the impact of different technical and design factors when making cost estimates for advanced parking management systems (APMS).
Experience from APMS deployment sites.
BWI Airport,Baltimore,Maryland,United States; Seattle,Washington,United States; Chicago,Illinois,United States
- At BWI, the unit cost of the equipment was approximately $450 per parking space. BWI stakeholders estimate that the system would have been more expensive if an existing facility had been retrofitted with the system’s equipment. THE APMS was estimated to cost between 2 and 5 percent of the overall construction cost of the new parking facility (excluding land costs).
- In Seattle, the cost per space varied widely depending on the facility type (garage or surface). The overall cost was driven to a large degree by the cost of getting the signs installed and linked to the central computer and to local power supplies.
- For the Chicago project, Metra will have a two year warranty period when the system becomes operational, during which time it will document operational costs such as staff time and materials. Metra expects that the annual electrical costs will be approximately $1680 to operate the seven signs.
