ATLANTA, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, announced today the launch of a new app feature that will show on-street parking availability, making it easier for people to find a parking spot in over 100 cities across the United States.
Studies show that the average person spends 17 hours per year searching for parking, costing an estimated $345 in wasted time, fuel and emissions. The new parking availability feature will solve this problem, helping drivers quickly navigate to areas where there is more open parking, and avoid areas where there is no parking. Parkmobile is the first parking payments app in the industry to deliver this feature, along with real-time parking and reservation capabilities.
"We are very excited to be first-to-market with a parking availability feature that truly gives people a smarter way to park," said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile. "In the past, we could show you where the parking spots were, but we had no way to tell you if a specific spot was taken. With this innovation, a person doesn't have to waste time driving around the city looking for parking. Our app will now help direct you to areas where parking is likely available, saving significant time and frustration as you're on the road."
The new parking availability feature is exclusively for ParkmobilePro members using the iOS or Android app. For just $0.99 per month, ParkmobilePro members get the parking availability feature along with discounted transaction fees, free roadside assistance and special offers on oil changes, rental cars and more. Learn more about the ParkmobilePro membership and the new parking availability feature by downloading the Parkmobile parking app.
