ParkWhiz, the largest and fastest growing online parking company in the U.S., today announced that it has expanded its service to New York City. In addition to the already popular special event parking that the company has offered in NYC since 2009, New Yorkers can now purchase daily or monthly parking in advance.
The company’s web and mobile apps allow users to compare price, location, walking time and amenities, and to book the perfect parking spot close to home or the office. After the transaction, customers receive an electronic parking pass to print or display on their smartphone. The free service minimizes the hassle of driving in circles looking for a decent parking spot.
“We are thrilled to be able to further our presence in NYC and to offer access to over 200 locations throughout the NYC area,” said Aashish Dalal, CEO of ParkWhiz. “In addition to saving our customers time, money and gas, our service offers peace of mind, and that is priceless.”
Present NYC monthly rates range from $125 to $1,000 depending on location and amenities. The current average monthly rate is $350. A monthly parking pass provides unlimited in and out access and parking agreements are made on a monthly basis. In addition, ParkWhiz's parking partners offer a number of added benefits ranging from discounts on car washes to cash for cab rides for those parking near the Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
More than 1 million people have used ParkWhiz.com and the ParkWhiz mobile apps to book daily, monthly and special event parking spots. Drivers can book event parking and purchase daily parking with potential savings up to 60% off some drive-up rates. This is possible due to ParkWhiz’s open marketplace model, which allows customers to price compare.
ParkWhiz, founded in 2006 and headquartered in Chicago, is the industry leader of online parking for daily, monthly and event parking. The company’s website and mobile platforms provide a fast and efficient way for drivers to find and book guaranteed parking spaces before reaching their destination. ParkWhiz has strategic partnerships with ticket platforms like StubHub and TicketsNow. The company also has partnerships with professional sports teams and venues including the Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens, US Airways Center, NCAA teams, and other sports and entertainment venues.
