Regulated parking has become an issue that currently plagues many nations around the world. Due to the increase in automobile ownership since the early 20th century, there now exists a serious parking issue that has to be resolved as quickly as possible.
To put things into perspective, in the year 2009, the City of Boston registered a sale of one of its premium parking slots for a whopping sum of $300,000. Similarly, the price of parking in Manhattan today stands at an average of $60 per hour. This clearly indicates that there needs to be some sort of market regulation when it comes to parking.
At this point, it is also wise to educate readers about some automobile figures that are not only startling, but also worthy of some concern. For example, according to conservative estimates, the number of cars that exist globally have been found to be near the 1 billion mark. In addition to this, the number of drivers that exist in the world's largest cities, have been estimated to be around 700 million.
You guessed it, ParkApp is a smartphone based application that has been designed to help solve the problem of parking congestion in the major cities throughout the world. It makes use of the latest ‘positioning technology’, as well as smart payment features to help users book parking spots in an easy and convenient manner. Some of the other key features of ParkApp include:
