There are thousands of unused available parking spaces around the country, the only problem is most of them are privately owned. Public parking fills up quickly and tends to overcharge guests. This leads to many commuters taking over 20 minutes to find parking and some are unable to find parking at all.
This time spent searching for parking also does a great deal of damage to the environment. About 30% of city traffic is caused by insufficient parking. And even more troubling, the search for parking causes over 4.2 million tons of CO2 emissions annually in Los Angeles alone.
Prked is attacking the problem of parking by connecting people who are looking for parking with people who have parking to share. So far, Prked has unlocked over 2,000 private spaces near some of the most popular (and congested) areas of the country.
Prked makes it possible for drivers to find and book parking on demand. We’re helping to alleviate the stress and time wasted from searching for parking, while also reducing traffic and emissions in cities all over our country. Prked also allows individuals and businesses to easily monetize their parking spaces whenever they aren’t in use. Everybody wins!
