How parking can make our cities a better place to live – and safe you a lot of time and stress

If you don’t have a private parking space, you surely know the situation when coming back from work, from a shopping trip, or really almost every time – you end up circling around the block, looking for a parking space. With time, you get a feeling for the streets and corners where its more probable to find free parking, but many times you hopes are still disappointed.

Did you know?

On average every driver in Germany spends around 41 hours a year looking for a parking space and he drives up to 4,5 additional kilometers each time, he looks for parking. This is not only annoying, but a hugely efficient use of time and contributes significantly to traffic, pollution and noise in cities. Studies show that up to 30% of traffic in cities is caused by parking search traffic.

Now new: Find & Park

Sustainability is a core value of Parkamo, and so is the painless parking process for our customers. In order to make it easier for you to find a free parking space, and save a lot of time and stress we have developed a new feature – Find & Park.

With Find & Park you can check our app to see a forecast of parking space availability, street-specific and in real time. This helps you to better estimate the probability of finding a parking space at your destination. Just select the Find & Park button and you will see all streets coloured in different colours:

green = thats a very good area to look for parking (high probability)
yellow = you should take your chances (medium probability) and
red = you should rather look elsewhere (low probability)

You might wonder why there are a few blank spots without colours on the map? In those areas there are no parking spaces or public parking is not allowed.

So go ahead, save yourself the stress and time of searching for a free parking spot and help to make our cities greener by reducing parking search traffic and emissions. Just Find & Park !

(Currently available in selected cities in Sweden and Germany! You can see the full list of cities here.)
