What is EZParkings?
EZParkings is an innovative and interactive mobile phone application focused on reducing the time and hassle associated with finding roadside parking spots in New York City. We offer a user-friendly platform through our iOS and Android application for hundreds of thousands of car owners in the city to help each other find roadside parking spots. Our goal is to save users on their valuable time, fuel costs and expensive garages or lots.
Which Problem Are We Trying to Solve?
According to a report by USA Today, the costs (fuel, time, emission and traffic) associated with the difficulty of roadside parking in New York City is approximately $4.3B/year for the city and $2,243/year for an average car owner. This number is extremely significant for people who are working more than 50-hours/week and making less than $50,000/year. In addition to this, the number of cars on the streets of NYC is continuously increasing, resulting in even fewer number of available roadside parking spots. This causes a significant number of car owners to drive around longer hours to find a spot to keep their car, thus wasting the time and fuel of the driver and causing unnecessary traffic issues in the city.
What is Our Solution?
EZParkings has an advanced incentive driven platform to put an end to this hassle by allowing users to view roadside parking openings through the application. We established a sophisticated, yet user friendly, point system in our application to incentivize people to publish their parking spots before leaving. This allows the users who are looking for a spot to view and claim the spot in advance without having to drive around for hours in a crowded street. more
