Digital Blue Zone in Piracicaba

The city of Piracicaba, São Paulo, relies on Digicon´s electronic parking meter ticketing system. In this first phase, there are 3,399 parking spaces, with 2,885 of these in the city center.


 With the establishment of the Digital Blue Zone (ZAD), Piracicaba has entered the ranks of the most modern cities in the world with regards to the control of parking spaces on public roads. In addition to modernizing the current system of control of the Blue Zone, ZAD is an instrument of urban mobility, democratizing the occupation of public roads and parking spaces, while also stimulating turnover.

The initial ZAD project in Piracicaba was for the implementation of electronic parking meters to operate 2,501 parking spaces downtown. The system also includes more than 32 spaces for the elderly (mandatory use of ticket) and 66 parking spaces for the disabled (exempt from payment of fee). There will also be 34 spaces for short stays, called the White Zone. People can use these parking spaces for up to 15 minutes. The project also organizes exclusive parking spaces for motorcycles (a total of 636 spaces).

ZAD operates from Monday to Friday, 9 am to 6:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. Aimed at stimulating the turnover of parking spaces - and thus, democratizing their occupation - the maximum period of parking is 2 hours.
