We’re committed to a green, convenient, compliant future
Barnacle® brings updated technology to 21st-century parking through a smart device that visibly drives compliance. Serving municipalities, universities, health systems, parking operators, and more, we’re redefining and enhancing the experience for the enforcer and motorist. Our parking enforcement solution moves everyone forward.
Barnacle Parking is redefining the way people move.
Barnacle Parking began with the goal of improving the parking enforcement experience for both enforcers and motorists. We thought there had to be a better, safer, easier way to immobilize non-compliant motorists—something other than the boot. There wasn’t, so we invented The Barnacle—an intelligent device that operators can deploy easily and violators can remove themselves once they pay their fine online or by phone.

What our customers are saying
Thanks to Barnacle, we increased collections by $30,000. In addition, people see The Barnacle on a vehicle which prompts many to pay their own outstanding tickets, so they don’t get Barnacled. The presence of The Barnacle is also causing more to abide by city parking rules in the first place, and we've written 1,000 fewer tickets. We collect more parking fines and write less tickets. It’s win-win for the City of Cheyenne.
Ted MiazgaParking Administration Manager, Cheyenne Police Department
Deploying The Barnacle on vehicles is a quick and simple process that takes much less time and effort than a traditional vehicle boot. It is much preferred than the orange boots we used previously.
Aaron TruittParking Enforcement Officer, Town of Upper Darby
For us, the Barnacle device has checked all the boxes; it’s effective, it’s easy to use, and it’s a time saver. Along with being an outstanding parking enforcement device, the Barnacle also comes with an exceptional customer service staff.
James FaupLead Parking Enforcement Agent, City of Columbia
Since Rochester Institute of Technology launched the Barnacle Parking Enforcement
system, the University has been able to streamline its enforcement process and drive
compliance in its many parking lots. The Barnacle is a great visual deterrent, often
sparking social media buzz.
The user-friendly App allows for easy deployment and the associated web application
gives you a real time play-by-play status of the device. On top of all this great smart
technology, the Barnacle backs up its product with an extremely dedicated service team
who provide intelligent solutions to any problems. Quite simply, it’s a great solution that
John ConnellyParking Enforcement and Operations Manager, RIT
It’s not often we get a product that goes such a long way towards improving the safety of our people in the field while at the same time enhancing payment and release flexibility for the parking patron.
Kevin McCormickDeputy Director, Department of Public Safety, Town of Hungtington
The Barnacle was introduced to the City of Berwyn Police Department to increase efficiency as well as safety measures among our parking enforcement division. We figured that The Barnacle could create a kinder experience with a motorist-release device for our constituents. Existing “traditional’ boots have been problematic to our city. Our department certainly has seen the benefits internally as our revenues have tripled since using this device to enforce on scofflaw. Also, our Community Service Officers have felt safer during deployments and have better oversight of the devices with the Barnacle Software, GPS Tracking and Real-Time Alerts. Overall, The Barnacle has done nothing but put a positive light on parking enforcement efforts among our community.
Sandro ScardamagliaCommander, City of Berwyn
We love how visible the Barnacle is, our students are aware of it and it helps to drive compliance on campus.
Don “Fish” VansandtUniversity Operations Systems Manager, St. Edward’s University
When we put a Barnacle on a vehicle, everyone sees it and it drives parking compliance. With Barnacle, we are improving our parking compliance and able to better collect from motorists with outstanding citations.
Jeff LantzParking Manager, City of Pompano Beach
Ever since we began using The Barnacle in the fall of 2021, the processes of both deploying devices and managing devices from our office have improved significantly. With The Barnacle devices being synced with our computers and mobile devices we now have a modernized way to manage and track all updates regarding deployed devices.
Sekela ColesDirector of Parking Enforcement, Town of Upper Darby
In my role as the Executive Director of the Reading Parking Authority, the employees at
Barnacle Parking have exceeded my expectations in the areas of problem solving and customer
For motorists, The Barnacle is friendlier than the boot. To work with the
public, we use The Barnacle when an individual has 5-9 tickets. The Barnacle fee is $125
whereas the boot fee is $200.
An important note is that more individuals have tried to drive off with the boot on their
vehicles than with The Barnacle as it is securely attached on their vehicle’s windshield.
Thomas MacDougalExecutive Parking Director, Reading Parking Authority
Prior to The Barnacle, we were using metal boots but they were hard to put on and dangerous for our enforcers. On top of that, motorists were frustrated because they could only pay during business hours to have the boot removed. In the last two years, we have collected over $225,000 since transitioning to The Barnacle.
Tom MaloneParking Operations Coordinator, West Palm Beach
Our Parking & Transportation department has been using The Barnacle just over a year. It’s lightweight, easy to maintain and store. Our parking enforcement team loves the fact that this device can be deployed in under five minutes. It has certainly captured the attention of scofflaws and on lookers. The Barnacle enabled our department to recoup over $40,000 in outstanding parking citations! So, if you’re looking for a more effective & efficient parking enforcement device, look no further than The Barnacle.
