MAY 27: PARKJOCKEY IS NOW TAKING OVER THE WINDY CITY!
ParkJockey’s pioneering new app and website will cut the time it takes Chicagoans to find a parking space from twenty down to two minutes! Launching with over 4,000 parking spaces in the system for Chicago, ParkJockey app allows users to browse for nearby parking spaces, compare prices, book and pay for parking with just one touch. By programming their preferences into the app, users can trust ParkJockey to find and book the most optimal parking option for them with a simple click on the “BOOK” button.
Research shows that drivers spend over 8,000 hours in their lifetime (close to a year) looking for somewhere to park. ParkJockey provides a painless solution to this problem, allowing drivers to quickly and easily plan their journey ahead of time, cutting out the need for that last minute frantic circle around the block to find a suitable space.
Whether arranging your travel in advance, or making a last minute booking, ParkJockey takes all the hassle out of parking, leaving you with more time to get on with what really matters.
The app seamlessly syncs with your calendar, estimates driving time, parking space availability and walking distance from the drop off point to your next appointment to give an accurate picture of the complete journey from start to finish.
Louis Aguirre and Lynn Martinez are no strangers to the struggles of finding parking in Miami so last night they shared with their viewers a better way – PARKJOCKEY! Just as the White Hot Heat were taking on the Brooklyn Nets, Deco Drive highlighted ParkJockey’s ability to score you parking at the arena, in advance or on-the-go.
Take a look at the full segment, featuring our Miami Head of Operations, Scott Rosen:
The ParkJockey Team woke up this morning feeling pretty chuffed with themselves (below should paint a thousand pictures)!
After all the hard work recently, the reward has come… being featured as one of the “Best New Apps” on the iTunes UK App Store. Not to mention the great company we were alongside, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Tumblr & SnapChat and being the only ‘Navigation’ catergorised app in this section.
This morning was a momentous occasion: ParkJockey was exposed to millions on live TV!
Not only have we accumulated 1000’s of social media mentions but also we got picked up in the top tech blogs such as The Next Web and IT Pro Portal, and not to mention our prime time breakfast slot on the one of the worlds top news channels – CNBC!
Our CEO Umut Tekin was asked to be featured on the CNBC morning show Worldwide Exchange, interviewed by Ross Westgate. ParkJockey’s app demo video was shown in the background presenting the seamless and ease of booking that coveted parking space with our app.
So, dear reader, hereby we give you ParkJockey – the parking solution that ‘Helps You Find That Elusive Parking Spot’ in London, because as studies show ‘you don’t want to spend a year out of your life time searching for parking, or do you?’
As the city prepares to kickoff eMerge Americas Techweek, the Miami Herald took the time to highlight a few startups that have chosen to call Miami home. ParkJockey is showcased, along with game creator Shiver Entertainment, mobile-banking provider Yellow Pepper and a few others. All have relocated their business to the area based on quality-of-life, geographic position, diversity, or cost of living.
If you’re planning to attend Techweek, make sure to catch our co-founder and CEO, Umut Tekin, speaking on the Big City Mobility panel on Tuesday!
