Have you ever taken rounds of an area searching for parking for so long that you actually see the fuel meter drop? Ever wanted to just go into Target for some water, but had to pay $5 per hour parking? Is parking really becoming a problem in the States? Our research says yes. We spend over $73 billion a year, just searching for parking. Those 3.6 billion hours per year that we continue to waste searching for parking can now be reduced with simple, yet high tech parking solutions that provide sustainable urban development, not to mention the chance for you to pick up some water for less than $2 per 2 hours!
So, here’s your solution: Parkaze. Both environmentally responsible and aesthetically pleasing. You might wonder where all the parking spots are? The streets seem to be full of it, then how it is that parking is this unfolding epidemic of sorts? Our research shows that 30% of all parking spots in cities in the United States are residential off-street parking, owned by private citizens and they are not publicly accessible. And Parkaze, is here to change that. Our goal is to combine the resources of a diverse community, so that we can mutually benefit from it—reducing cost, creating new experiences and building smarter and sustainable cities.
As cities expand and population increases, our needs are evolving. While some apps support garage style parking, and others street-side, Parkaze has got it all, we not only target private entities but use highly efficient remote sensing systems both street-side and in garages to connect users and hosts, in order to make this tedious process a little more bearable.
Charmie, a student at Harvard Design School said, “Parkaze has been such a great way to make some money, all whilst helping the environment.” She had just flown into Boston for her higher education when she decided to enroll as a host with Parkaze. Similarly, Hannah, said, “I was in desperate need for a reliable and cheap parking spot close to my area, but all parking was either taken, or expensive, or both.” When Hannah and Charmie’s needs paralleled, it seemed like a match made in heaven—and Parkaze played cupid! This is what we stand for—to help meet people halfway using sustainable means. Like Hannah or Charmie, you too can be a host or renter, simply with one click and a swish. The rest, we handle personally.
If you’ve got 99 problems, with Parkaze, parking won’t be one.
