Finally! After months of speculation and anticipation we are proud to unveil ParkMe on the world’s leading smartphone platform.
The new (and free) ParkMe Android app is an exciting addition to the services we already offer. This is a momentous time for the company, as we are on the precipice of exciting announcements that will change the way we look at navigation. An Android app means we’re able to free more drivers of the headaches in looking for parking.
ParkMe users are able to find the perfect parking spot in more than 28,000 locations around the globe, 1,800 cities, 32 countries and seven continents. The addition of our Android app allows us to help more drivers reach their destinations without the hassle of having to look for parking. By giving users access to real-time information, we are able to cut down on the time drivers take in finding parking destinations.
Our tech team has worked tremendously hard in building out, not just the Android app, but also making improvements in the web map and iOS app. Our success is measured by the support of the drivers using our app. So, of course, we wouldn’t be able to do this without the community of users who have supported us throughout this process. Thank you and keep on parking.

There’s perhaps no bigger name in parking than Donald Shoup. He is a Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA, and is affectionately known by his fans as “The Parking Guru.” His monumental book, The High Cost of Free Parking, came out in 2005 and is often cited in parking studies around the world.
Professor Shoup was kind enough to sit down with us dispense his thoughts of everything in and around his parking-centric world.
The parking map above shows all the parking lots and garages that will be available around Bolyston Street, the area where the Boston Marathon bombings took place. Use this map to find the best parking spots around and help support the local businesses that work to keep Boston Strong!
The nightmare that was the Boston bombing and the ensuing events surrounding the city are over. By offering free parking Wednesday through Sunday, the city of Boston wants to return to normalcy and encourage The Boston Strong faithful.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino hopes that it will encourage shoppers and diners to return to the area of Boylston Street and Bay Back in order to support the efforts of the local businesses where the bombings took place. As of Marathon Monday, those streets have been closed off due to the events.
The map above shows all the Revlon Run/Walk parking spots around the Los Angeles Coliseum.
The 16th Anniversary of the Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women is scheduled to commence next Saturday, May 4 in New York; while the 20th Anniversary of the Los Angeles edition is set to go on the following week. The Revlon Run/Walk helps support the research, treatment, and financial support that helps women facing cancer.
Since its inception, the Revlon Run/Walk has helped distribute $68 million toward such programs aimed at helping women. The 2013 EIF Revlon Run/Walk will be held at Central Park for the New York run and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park on May 11, 2013.
There are two cities, Los Angeles and New York City, hosting the events so we’ve made a handy parking guide for each city and the surrounding area where the event will be held.
April 22 marks Earth Day, a worldwide movement that serves to recognize the importance of environmental protection. Effectively known as the International Mother Earth Day, Earth Day began in 1970 where it came to the United States and went international later in 1990 by Earth Day Network.
