SpotHero saves drivers from having to search the street for metered and street parking by offering the best deals at garages and lots throughout New York City.

With more than 10 million parking tickets issued in NYC each year, SpotHero wants to help the city’s drivers sidestep potential penalties and see where they can park before they arrive at their destination. Manhattan has 100,000 licensed off-street parking spaces in 1,100 parking garages. SpotHero works with the top-parking operators in the city, to save drivers up to 40% off parking rates, making it affordable to park.

In NYC, 27% of garages do not take credit cards, which limits your payment options. SpotHero paves the way for pay-by-phone parking and lets you find, compare and reserve parking with your credit card.

Daily commuters monthly parking options are limited, since only 2.8% of NYC garages offer monthly parking. Drivers can find and reserve daily, monthly and event parking, online or on to go, using SpotHero’s free mobile app, available for both the iPhone and Android. It’s a simple to use; drivers enter their destination, see parking and pricing nearby in real-time and reserve with a click of a button.

While parking in New York City at garages and lots is quite expensive, making a prepaid reservation with an app makes it less expensive than parking on the street. Not to mention, finding street parking in NYC can be frustrating for drivers. Street parking presents numerous problems including traffic, with 30% of traffic attributed to people circling the block searching for parking. Drivers who seek cost savings on parking can easily book a reservation and have the convenience of prepaying for a guaranteed spot.
