Metropia App to Ease Congestion at Book Festival

Metropia, the free mobile app developed by associate professor Yi-Chang Chiu, will help ease parking frustration for the 130,000 expected attendees of the 2016 Tucson Festival of Books on March 12-13. Thanks to a partnership with UA Parking and Transportation Services, the app will tell drivers which parking areas still have space in nearly real time, allowing them to spend less time searching for a spot and more time enjoying the festivities. 

Metropia will also be offering raffle prizes to its users at Booth No. 103. Download to your iOS or Android device and drop by the booth this weekend!
