We wanted to talk about it: with MyCarSpot, you have the option to choose the parking allocation algorithm to make it fair!
There are two options available to clients: giving priority to the oldest requests (up to 4 weeks in advance) or giving priority to those who have obtained the least places in the last 2 months.
Concretely this means that parking does not always benefit the same people, it is equality in sharing places.
So a user who would occasionally benefit from a parking space, a Friday because he goes on a weekend, will have every chance to get one!
As a reminder, there may be applicants for places that have priority. The new algorithm meets this criterion. There is therefore the allocation of the places to the priority applicants, according to a sorting with the seniority of the requests or the number of places obtained in the last 2 months then allocation to the non-priority users, according to the sorting criterion chosen.
It’s up to you: which algorithm suits you best?
