  • How are cities chosen?
    Deadlines & Criteria City must fill out applications and have them submitted by deadline City must have a desired commitment to measure, manage, & monetize commercial activity at the curb over course of the next year City must aim to utilize curb management solution to address safety and/or emissions reductions Executive sponsor (DOT Director, PW Director, Mayor's Office Staff, etc.) Ability to stand up a project within 6 months of being accepted
  • Why is Automotus providing this at no cost?
    As a leader in automated curb management, Automotus has developed first-of-its-kind computer vision technology that allows cities to automatically analyze, monetize, and enforce all forms of curbside activity without incurring the upfront cost of hardware. We see a valuable opportunity in working with both cities and operators to create a win-win public/private partnership that pays for itself through willing operators who are granted more accessible curbs at a fair rate in areas where their drivers need it most. We are providing our technology at no upfront cost as a direct response to the rapidly expanding number of stakeholders at the curb - freight, ride-hailing, and food delivery services. Automotus has partnership and transaction fee agreements that allow us to provide our technology and services to both cities and operators.
  • How much revenue could this generate?
    Depending on the number of designated loading zones, and based on historical data from existing vendors, we can provide a projection of revenue based on usage.
  • I run a business or oversee a fleet of vehicles (freight, food-delivery, moving trucks, etc.). How do I get involved in this program?"
    Let’s connect! Email to let us know what cities you operate in and what type of fleet or business you are.
  • I am a driver and do deliveries or service calls as part of my profession.  How do I get access to Smart Loading Zones in my city?
    If you work for a fleet or larger company, check with your management to find out whether your company is already partnering with your city on this program. If you work independently, email We will provide information for how to get access to Smart Zones in each city as program registration becomes available.
  • I work for a city and we are interested in learning more about implementing Smart Loading Zones. How do I get more information?
    You can request a meeting with a member of the Automotus team here.
