ParkMe is a personal parking assistant that uses technological solutions to improve parking in urban environments. With an estimated 30% of traffic due to people searching the block for a space, the app gives driver vital information and reduces their carbon emission output. With ParkMe's comprehensive parking data (hours of operation, rates, entrance points, payment types) in the top 300 US cities, 200 European and 50 Canadian, no driver will ever be left in the dark again. Additionally, ParkMe's "real-time" on-street data has recently been deployed in Austin, TX, with many more cities to be added in the coming months.
ParkMe was founded by Sam Friedman and Alex Israel, who founded the company because they were frustrated with how difficult it was to find parking spots.
