The 2013 Major League Baseball season is upon us, and there is perhaps no place with more excitement and optimism than Dodger Stadium. With all the buzz surrounding the new ownership, stadium renovations and the team’s record payroll, there should be no shortage of story lines. Parking, however, may come in limited supply.
The Bay Area is home to one of the best public transportation systems in the nation. The BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) helps millions of residents get around smoothly.

San Francisco is arguably America’s most picturesque city, and one of the city’s most photographed places is Pier 39, also known as the Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s located on the northern tip of the city, with breathtaking views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. You can guarantee yourself a delicious clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, but a guaranteed Pier 39 parking spot another matter.
Eric Garcetti shows off the Los Angeles 311 app that allows Angelenos to report civic issues from their smartphones.
Before the election we caught up with City Councilman Eric Garcetti, one of the leading candidates to become the next mayor of Los Angeles. He is a lifelong Angeleno and a big champion of our growing tech scene. Mr. Garcetti graciously gave us thoughts on everything from smart parking to his favorite local eateries.
We hope you enjoy his insights as much as we did!

Here at ParkMe we like to keep you informed about what’s happening in the world of parking. That includes Europe, where towns are extremely dense and have been trying to adequately deal with the issue of parking for decades. London, one of the oldest and most prominent cities in the world, is no exception. We extend our thanks Matt, a local who frequently blogs about cars, transportation, and of course, parking.
Parking in London can be a nightmare if you’re not clued up – in fact, it can also be extremely expensive if you overlook the many provisos that come with different areas of parking, often leaving you with a hefty fine. If you are visiting London by car, here are some great tips and advice on successful, citation-free parking.
