All this is good news for you, even if you don’t own a car. Because parking space for cars often takes priority over human living space, and searches for parking create more traffic, more carbon emissions, and more stress for everyone living in a community. Parking costs raise rent an average of $225 a month nationwide. And parking space asphalt traps heat and can raise summer city temperatures as much as 9° F. These facts really drive home the fact that parking is a topic that affects us all.
We empower communities with information that makes parking faster, easier and more efficient, allowing us to take incremental steps towards a future we all want: one without all the pollution, traffic and stress that parking currently creates, where asphalt parking spaces for cars are transformed into green spaces for people.
