- Transport for London has shared its red route kerbside restriction data with AppyWay to unlock even more of the capital via their driver app, AppyParking+
- Drivers including blue badge holders, fleets and delivery services are often confused by restrictions on red routes and avoid stopping, loading, or unloading in these areas
- The only app with red route parking data, AppyParking+ drivers in London can now see when, where and for how long it is okay to park along these routes
- Red route parking data enables users of AppyParking+ to make better travel decisions, enabling fewer miles to be driven, and reducing congestion and emissions
Tuesday 6th December 2022, London, UK, AppyWay, the intelligent kerbside company empowering local governments to activate decarbonisation efforts and helping fleets and drivers reduce mileage, has today announced the launch of red route parking data within its driver app, AppyParking+.
Making up 5% of London’s roads, but carrying up to 30% of the city’s traffic, red routes are an important part of journeys across the capital. Red routes help reduce congestion and ensure crucial deliveries and journeys can be made safely to keep the city moving. Unless otherwise stated, these major arterial routes with single and double red lines are no stopping at all times. However, TfL who manages restrictions on red routes, do in fact allow parking along them in specified areas, for specified periods, when their use will not cause any major disruption to the capital’s busy road network.
AppyWay and their driver app, AppyParking+, enables drivers and fleets to access detailed parking restriction information for all 32 London boroughs. Helping them to find and navigate to parking quickly and efficiently, in turn reducing mileage, fuel usage and congestion. To cover all of London’s kerbside, AppyWay and TfL worked together to make it even easier for people to understand the parking restrictions on London’s red routes.
With TfL’s help, the AppyParking+ app now displays all red route parking information for London. This exciting development means drivers in London can experience improved journeys around the capital. Delivery services, trades and more can safely load and unload, and blue badge holders can park, pick up or drop off much closer to their destinations.
Now live within the app, AppyWay Founder & CEO Dan Hubert comments,
”Through AppyParking+ we have proven the importance of putting kerbside data into the hands of London’s drivers. Everyday drivers can make informed travel decisions, and fleets are able to optimise their operations. This means fewer miles are driven by today’s transport, and drivers transitioning faster to carbon-zero options. Red route data is another piece of this all-important kerbside puzzle and we’re thrilled to be sharing this information with users of AppyParking+.
Nick Owen, TfL’s Head of Network Performance, said,
”Parking restrictions around the capital play an important role in reducing motor traffic, and enabling more walking, cycling and public transport use. People driving should only stop or park on red routes where permitted and we want to make it as simple as possible for people to understand where they can and can’t park. Adding this data to the AppyParking+ app will make our parking restrictions even clearer, and we hope that this increases compliance with these vital restrictions.
