Park.it is a crowd-sourced, mobile-based real-time service that guides users to New York City's parking sweet spots and connects strangers to share unused and underused parking spaces throughout the city. We look for ways to reduce environmental impact of cars by directing users to the right spaces at right hours and provide street sign information when users choose to park curbside.
Park.it is also a crowd-sourced app so that the more users there are to share spots with each other the better it works. Buy the stranger who tipped you off a cup of coffee and pay it forward!
