Everything to do with car travel in NYC is something of a nightmare. From finding a park, hailing a cab to navigating traffic choked streets you need patience and nerves of steel to survive.
So the idea of using apps to find a parking spot or to quickly and easily park in a garage and then retrieve your car without waiting or hassle sounds really, really good.
One of these apps has been around for a while, ‘Parking Finder’ by nyc.bestparking.com, which shows you maps of free, metered and prohibited parking spots along with garages, prices etc. A very handy app and a real time saver.
Now a new firm based in IsraeL, Pango is offering a service in NYC.
It has teamed up with Imperial parking Garage on 77th St, near Lexington Ave to provide you with an easy park, easy retrieve parking solution to save you all the time of trying to find a park. They are actively looking to establish partnerships with other garages to provide more choice.
Of course complete happiness for the NYC parker would be an all in one app that gave them what Pango offers, plus a schematic of all parking meters and their availability. The first up with that one will make a fortune. COMMENT on whether you think these apps are useful
