With over 1,100 parking garages in New York City, parking in the Big Apple can still be a competitive sport, due to traffic congestion. SpotHero, an online parking reservation company in the U.S., has launched its service in New York to improve and fix the parking process.
The service is part of a national launch that includes Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, Boston and Washington D.C.
Available for both the iPhone and Android, the free app is designed to help drivers locate and price discounted parking spots. New York drivers can now use the mobile app to find the best daily or monthly parking spot in advance or on the go by comparing price and location near their destination.
In addition to being able to secure a spot, users will also know the cost in advance. Parking spots can be searched by neighborhood or events.
