ROC Awarded NYSDOT Grant for Garage Parking Guidance System

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) has been awarded a New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Grant for $499,000 towards installing a Garage Parking Guidance System.

“This technology will create a customer friendly experience for our garage parking customers at the airport,” said Dinolfo. “Passengers will be able to use the parking guidance system to view available parking spots at a glance, maximizing garage parking efficiency and increasing customer satisfaction. This is a great enhancement to our recent ROC Renovation Project, which transformed our airport into a modern, state of the art facility that will help us grow more jobs, build better, fiscally-responsible budgets, and support stronger families here for years to come.”

The project proposes to construct a parking guidance system inside the Airport Ramp Garage. The system will use visual cues to help drivers find available parking spaces. The system consists of colored lights at each parking space that indicate by color whether the space is handicap or not, open or occupied. Sensors at each parking space determine occupancy.

Approximately 1,400 parking spaces on the first and second levels of the garage would be considered for the guidance system. The roof level of the garage will not receive the system at this time.
