In 2012, Washington D.C. handed out one million parking tickets. SpotHero, the “Orbitz” of parking, announced today it has launched its service in Washington D.C. to help make parking easy for the daily driver.
Driving is a primary mode of transportation in DC and commuting in the region on average is 53 minutes. One of the most persistent and infuriating problems of city living is finding parking. In DC, there are over one million commuters everyday and there’s only 17,000 open on-street metered parking spots, making parking a major source of stress for drivers.
Jeremy Smith and Mark Lawrence, Co-Founders of SpotHero, were outraged with the parking dilemma and came up with a solution by launching the company to take the pain out parking. SpotHero is bringing the power to park right into drivers pocket. Drivers can open the SpotHero app or go online to find their perfect spot. For the first time, drivers can have a sense of control of their parking experience.
“Parking in Washington D.C. has always been frustrating since it’s expensive and almost impossible. With SpotHero, drivers can find spots near their destination, see how much they cost and even reserve them on their phone. There’s no more guessing, no more circling and no more parking tickets,” said Jeremy Smith, Co-Founder, SpotHero.
Drivers can now find better parking in Washington D.C. with SpotHero. The company is a driving force in the parking industry, helping hundreds of thousands people park while avoiding parking tickets and expensive parking fines. Drivers can find available parking spots using SpotHero’s website, iPhone app, and Android app and has convenient parking options in Downtown DC, Georgetown and the National Mall for as low as $14. SpotHero works with the largest and most reputable parking companies in DC to give customers access to the best inventory of parking spots and save up to 40% off parking rates.
“Knowing that a parking space is reserved, ready and waiting for you when you get to the garage or lot, and that it’s fully paid for, puts your mind at ease,” said Smith. “We’re making parking convenient and stress-free for the daily driver.”
The parking experts provide 24-hour customer support. SpotHero believes it’s imperative to build up a strong community of loyal customers and provide them with the best solution for their parking needs.
