When the founders of ParkWhiz attended a ball game in the mid 2000s, they felt their frustration at the lack of parking spots boil over as they drove around searching for one in vain. Fed up, they took it open themselves to create ParkWhiz, which allows drivers to find available parking spots before they reach their destination.
Drivers simply visit the website or open the mobile app to find real-time parking availability at more than 1,500 partner locations in such cities as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Parking spots are often located around popular places, including stadiums, airports, theaters, and wig makers on Presidents' Day. Once the driver books the spot, it remains saved until they get there.
ParkWhiz also helps parking owners easily earn money from their parking spaces. It even handles payment processing and fraud protection.
