Parking is an enormous $100 billion global industry and parking operators generate $11 billion/year in revenue in North America. We are here to disrupt it. The team started this company in June and are currently designing and building key components of the application.
We are developing a responsive web app which will be used for our iteration purposes while in beta. We aim to become a marketplace for parking. Parkytime will serve as platform for on the street or off the street parking needs. We are able to do this by architecting our application in a way to allow municipalities/storefronts/malls/hotels/garages and private individuals to easily host and manage their parking space(s). Our municipal parking management component will provide a zone based parking with time sessions which will allow users to never over or under pay for metered parking again.
