First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
North America-based Parkmobile has introduced a new app feature that shows on-street parking availability with the intention of making it easier for ParkmobilePro members to find a parking spot in over 100 cities across the United States.
The feature intends to help drivers navigate to areas with more open parking and avoid areas where is none. It also comes with real-time parking and reservation capabilities.
In addition, members will receive discounted transaction fees, free roadside assistance as well as offers on oil changes and rental cars. It is available for iOS and Android users for $.099 (£0.69) a month.
Jon Ziglar, chief executive officer at Parkmobile, said: "We are very excited to be first-to-market with a parking availability feature that truly gives people a smarter way to park. 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."
