FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Parking in select U.S. cities today got a little easier with the release of the next generation of Parker™, the award-winning smart parking app by Streetline, Inc. (www.streetline.com)
With this latest release for both iPhone and Android, consumers can quickly view available parking options based on pricing, location, and/or real-time availability. Parker™ 3.0 also features voice guidance to indicate parking nearby, as well as the ability to find parking based on user-defined preferences such as electric vehicle (EV) charging stations or handicapped spaces. Motorists can also search by points of interest – including airports, universities, shopping centers, featured neighborhoods, transit or hospitals – with new locations and updates being added daily.
Real-time parking information is now available for both on-street parking spots enabled via Streetline’s parking sensors, as well as off-street garage and lot information published by parking operators via Streetline’s ParkEdge garage management system.
“Streetline is laser focused on consumer-driven parking innovation. Consumers want to find the most convenient, quick, and attractively priced parking closest to their destination. Parker 3.0 makes important steps towards that goal,” said Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline. “With this latest release, we’ve further enhanced the user experience, adding in new features such as the ability to toggle between availability and price or find a space based on user-defined filters. We also include both on-street spaces, as well as garages/lots. As we move toward in-car navigation and see more and more cities deploying sensors to provide real-time parking data to motorists, we believe the idea of ‘searching for parking’ will become a thing of the past.”
