Palmerston North City Council

The smart city parking platform for future focussed
cities who are ahead of the curve. Follow the Frog.

Palmerston North is New Zealand’s eighth largest city, with a population of over 82,000, and a concentrated CBD featuring a vibrant shopping centre catering for over 120,000 vehicle trips every week.

Rolled out in 2009, Frogparking delivered a complete, integrated, smart-city solution to make parking easier for users and more efficient to manage for the city.

The solution involved a full, city-wide, on-street deployment of hardware and software developed by our in-house team of engineers and developers. Over 3,000 solar occupancy sensors, a mobile app to take payments, a smart enforcement app for wardens to issue citations/tickets, cloud-based software for reporting, analytics, and citation/ ticket management, as well as full integration with existing on-street payment machines.

Frogparking, as the world-leading parking technology company based in Palmerston North, saw the opportunity to work with the city council to create an intelligent and efficient 21st century urban parking system.

What they said


Frogparking’s system has provided the council with excellent value for money and ultimately the best deal for local ratepayers.

I am proud to be entering the eighth year of working with Don and Shareena Sandbrook, & the team at Frogparking. They have been a great tech partner for the city, providing a range of quality, reliable products that, after eight years in the field, are delivering as reliably as they did on day one.
