The Government has awarded £4 million for tech initiatives which provide motorists advance notice of congestion and available parking spaces.
Faxi is just one of many apps which help to contribute towards a more sustainable Britain by reducing congestion, improving transport efficiency and by helping drivers to locate available parking spaces, and has been part of a council funding initiative to improve journeys through digital innovation.
Nineteen councils across England will receive between £50,000 and £300,000 each for their initiatives to improve transport, reduce congestion and improve parking in city centres.
Roads Minister Andrew Jones, said:
I congratulate today’s winners for coming up with cutting-edge, innovative ideas that will transform journeys for passengers and motorists across the country. Technology is rapidly evolving and this important work shows that if we get it right, it can cut congestion, speed up journeys, clean up the environment, and improve accessibility.
