Parking Panda allows parking space owners to capitalize on their underutilized parking spaces by renting them out to a community of drivers who need spots. D.C. residents or visitors in need of parking can use Parking Panda to save money and time by booking a parking space in advance on the web or through their mobile phone.
For its launch in D.C., Parking Panda is partnering with two garage companies, PMI and Central Parking. Users will be able to reserve a spot in the local garages at a reduced rate, resulting in peace of mind, and an overall more efficient parking experience. D.C. parking spot and driveway owners can also now begin listing their available spaces. When someone has booked a space, Parking Panda sends the owner an email alert with the sale information. Then the owner can sit back, relax, and wait for the check to come in the mail.
Parking Panda users can find available parking spots using the Parking Panda website, either from a web browser or a mobile phone web browser. If searching from a mobile phone, the site will use the user’s location to automatically find nearby available parking, or users can enter a location to search. Users can see photos of spaces, and even pay for the spaces directly from their mobile phones.
$92.6 million $31 million
"Knowing that a parking space is ready and waiting for you when you get there, and that it’s fully legal, puts your mind at ease," said Miller. "Whether you’re a daily commuter, or you’re heading into the city to see a friend or attend an event, Parking Panda will help you park happy."
