Contracted Responsibility: Prime

The goal of this DART parking lot study was to obtain weekday usage at each of DART’s facilities with public parking. Once a baseline number is established, counts will be conducted on a quarterly basis. The study began January 6, 2018. To accomplish the project goal, Dikita conducted the surveys using tablet computers. Our programmer developed a software application to facilitate these counts and designed an interface for the data to be downloaded and reviewed using Dikita’s in-house data management program called TRIP. Depending on the number of vehicles parked at the location, the program counted occupied spaces or empty spaces.
