Although the first patent for a parking meter was filed more than 70 years ago, since that time, the technology has barely changed. This paper focuses primarily on what intelligent parking technology (IPT) offers parking consumers and whether or not they are willing to adopt it. Prior studies on technology adoption and diffusion provide a theoretical framework. This research surveyed 133 drivers to explore the perceived value for drivers from different parking technologies currently available to parking providers. Findings from the driver surveys indicate that drivers are more than willing to adopt IPT. The majority of drivers indicated that they believed they would get some value from the specific parking technologies presented. Furthermore, the majority of drivers also stated that they would be willing to pay more for a parking space if IPT added value for them.
