"Sidewalk Labs-backed curb management company Coord has selected four cities to participate in its inaugural Digital Curb Challenge: Aspen, CO; Omaha, NE; Nashville, TN and West Palm Beach, FL," reports Kristin Musulin.
The "smart zone" pilot projects will offer each participating city a chance to "provide delivery and service vehicle drivers with mobile app data and information that will incentivize loading in safe and permitted curb locations," according to Musulin. "Cities can tailor their smart zones with time limits, hours of operations and prices, and drivers can use the mobile app to hold, pay for and extend their smart zone reservation."
More details and history on the Digital Curb Challenge are available in the source article.
