Trying to find parking in a busy city can be unnecessarily time consuming and downright frustrating. Imagine you had someone sending you real-time notifications indicating available parkings in a given area; brilliant. ParkMe makes this a reality. The Santa Monica based service provides parking information to navigation companies and smartphones. ParkMe also provides the ParkMe API that enables developers to integrate this functionality with other applications.
The ParkMe app uses heat maps to help users find available parkings in real-time. This shows users the most likely parking availability on a block by block basis. The service also includes a rate calculator, in-app route guidance and a timer. ParkMe’s extensive parking database includes over 25 000 worldwide locations in more than 500 cities, 19 countries and three continents, making it a relevant and pretty helpful tool.
Developers will need an API key to access the ParkMe API, and they can request this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Public documentation is not available.
