has joined forces with BMW subsidiary Reach Now to build integrated smart city solutions aimed at improving parking, transit and multimodal transportation.
Users could pay for parking in a transit lot via the ParkMobile app and then use Reach Now to buy a ticket to ride a train, bus or ferry.
Nat Parker, CEO of Reach Now, says the partners will create “smarter mobility solutions that help drive more intelligence for cities and help consumers get from point A to B”.
The partnership between ParkMobile and Reach Now was realised via a joint venture between BMW and Daimler, which seeks to encourage collaboration in areas such as transit, parking, charging, ride-sharing and ride-hailing companies.
ParkMobile is also working with BMW-owned Charge Now to integrate charging solutions.
