With a rise in vehicles on the road, parking spaces have become prized possessions. Research shows that 8% to 74% of road traffic is due to drivers looking for suitable parking spots. This has become an increasing concern, especially in big cities. But that’s not all.

Motorists in the U.S. expend an average of $345 in lost time and fuel yearly looking for parking. When countries want to adopt a green economy mandate, there is a need for smart parking to reduce the time and money drivers spend looking for parking and overpaying for the limited parking slots, respectively.

Growth in Parking Apps

The current condition has led many motorists to switch to convenient parking apps that save valuable time and fuel. It is predicted that the global parking app market will rise to almost $7 billion in 2023. Users want to ditch the hassle of cruising around to find parking. They prefer parking online, with a click of a button, rather than using physical tickets and paying cash.

How To Build A Parking App?

Operators can increase their profits by switching to smart parking and launching their own parking app.

There are 3 parking app development ideas you can consider:

  • Develop an app from scratch, but without knowledge and experience, it may take a long time
  • Collaborate with an existing parking platform to add your parking lot to their network, but with restricted autonomy
  • Launch a custom-branded parking app, like the one provided by Get My Parking (GMP)
