How cities use CDS depends on a variety of factors: curb management goals, existing services and infrastructure, and the unique needs of their communities. In fact, CDS’ flexibility means it can be used in many scenarios, including the following use cases:

  • Digitally sharing regulations, including loading zone rules and locations
  • Determining real-time curb status
  • Tracking and analyzing curb usage
  • Responding to curb violations and improving curb enforcement
  • Optimizing curb usage and access to meet policy goals
