Currently downown Austin has very few signs directing people to available parking garages and surface lots. Most people do not realize that on busy evenings, more than 40% of the spaces in garages and surface lots sits unused in downtown...not in the busiest areas...but still in the core of downtown. Why? People do not necessarily know where to park and there are very few signs that easily identify public parking. The city needs to have a comprehensive wayfinding (directional signs) system that tells people where parking is located and how many spots are available in real time.
