    It really should be easier to find out what cities they currently operate in. I can't find that information anywhere on their website, at least not with a cursory scan.

      Hi Shane, to see if a particular city is available in Parker, you can look in the app's directory by pressing the world icon at the top of the screen. You can also enter a specific address in the search bar by pressing the magnifying glass. Happy parking!

        My concern was that I didn't want to download the app just to find out if it's even any use where I live. I don't own a car so this was purely out of curiosity for me, but I could imagine others not checking out the app because of the very likely prospect of downloading it just to find that it isn't in their city. Let them check online, and if it's in their city then they can download it.

    seeing this, and coming out of a meeting with a ev charging station provider makes me wonder the feasibility of further tapping the value of the street - i.e. if adding sensors provides this data source, is there any way to embed a charging pad oscillator and a coil to generate electromagnetic waves at a set frequency and desired scale to charge an EV battery when parked above it. Kind of a tangent, but the post got me thinking about this real-estate and what it might yield. And while i'm at it, this would be effectively open up a fun way to distribute surplus energy from the grid during the day (if an area had enough solar) into battery.

    just downloaded this and went through the tutorial - super impressive. hoping the parking areas that it covers in LA continue to expand!

    This is a great idea which has been implemented in several countries already but is one of those things that are not easy to do and requires a decent adoption rate before it becomes effective.

      what city are you in? the coverage in LA looks decent, in select neighborhoods...do you know of other countries that have had success with something like this?

      • Jay Mutzafi

        I'm also in LA. I will try it out as soon as the car is out of the shop ;)

        A friend pitched this idea in Israel and two companies ended up launching a similar service. Not sure how well they did but i'll try looking it up.

          very cool - would be curious about it!
