Parking Search App Now Online For Indy
Indianapolis city officials today unveiled a new working app designed to make parking a snap.
ParkIndy has installed almost 600 sensors in parking spots around Monument Circle, Mass Avenue and in Broad Ripple. The sensors are monitored by the smartphone app called Parker. Parker is the brainchild of San Francisco-based Streetline Inc. The free app is a GPS-like creation that reveals all available parking spaces. It allows drivers to click on the spaces and pay for parking in that spot.
Parker Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Schwager says Indianapolis is the first city in the midwest to have the technology. Cities like New York, Los Angeles, Boston and DC already have it. ParkIndy plans to install many more sensors throughout the year.
