How do Smart Loading Zones work?

DEDICATED SPACE WHEN DRIVERS NEED IT

Smart Loading Zones are bookable curb spaces (via the Pebble Driver App) dedicated to loading and unloading during peak hours.

SPACE THAT’S EASY TO FIND, BOOK, & LOAD

No more circling to find open curb space! With the Pebble Driver App, you’ll see a map of all available loading spaces near your destination. Via the app, you can book a spot within a half mile of your delivery, and reserve the space for the time required to get the job done. Clear signage and paint (shown below) will ensure you're in the right place.

Fees apply to use a Smart Loading Zone. You only pay for the time you use!

Smart Loading Zone rates and time limits in Aspen are:

  • $0.50/15 minutes (paid by the minute)
  • 1-hour max stay in alley Smart Loading Zones
  • 2-hour max stay in street Smart Loading Zones

SAFER STREETS FOR ALL

Avoid double parking, standing in bus or bike lanes and receiving parking tickets by using Smart Loading Zones – helping to improve the safety of other drivers and pedestrians.

Smart Loading Zone Locations and Hours

Hours vary by zone. See map legend and check signage to confirm.

Responsible Data Use

Like all Sidewalk Labs products, Pebble incorporated concepts like Privacy by Design and data minimization into its work from the earliest design phases. That's why we designed Pebble with no cameras or other potential identifying technologies: it wasn’t necessary to achieve the product’s goals.

To help put our approach into practice, we conduct Responsible Data Use Assessments for all our products. You can read Pebble’s RDUA summary at the link below.
