ParkYou! leverages real world micro-communities with our powerful app platform to enable you to instantly find street parking in New York City (and soon in 30-40 other cities globally).
Simple Community-Based On-Street Parking Experience:
• Offer your parking spot and agree to wait a few minutes for a fellow community member
• Find a parking spot in real-time by entering your destination. Follow the orange line to a spot that another member is about to leave
• Earn Parking Units when offering spots and use them when you want a spot
• Earn Usage Points for discounts at local businesses and other surprise rewards
• Help reduce parking pain, traffic and pollution by not wasting time looking for parking on your own!
An important note:
We build one small area at a time to ensure lots of participants and parking spots. Because we want this to work, we expand across cities over time, not all at once. Our Parky's People Brand Ambassadors sign up members during Alternate Side Parking (street cleaning times) and at places where NYC car owners congregate. But don't hesitate to download the app yourself.
We're launching in Central Harlem and then growing quickly across upper Manhattan. Over the next 12 months we'll cover all of the boroughs except Staten Island. Over the next three years, we'll bring the ParkYou! community to Boston, Philly, DC, San Francisco, London, Paris, Munich . . . pop music. Oops, got carried away. But the point is we'll be ending the street parking nightmare in dozens of great cities around the world.
If your home is not in one of our earliest areas, please be patient. We promise to get to you as soon as we can. In the meantime, you'll be able to use the app in any area you park that we cover. We'll be adding new areas every week, so make sure to check the Coverage Map accessible through the Dashboard of the ParkYou! app regularly. We're excited to be your Partners in Park.
How it works:
You get to be a great neighbor by offering your spots to the community and waiting for other ParkYou! members to take them. Each time you offer and complete an exchange or wait a total of ten minutes over one or more sessions without someone taking your spot, you get a Parking Unit (PU) that can be used the next time you need a spot.
When you have a PU and need a spot, just enter your destination like in a map app and start driving. When you get close, we automatically match you to the best spot for you based on car length and walking distance to your destination. Accept, drive to the spot, and say hi. They pull out and you pull in. Done.
In addition to being able to instantly find spots by helping others in your city, you'll earn another type of point called Usage Points (UPs) for using the ParkYou! app to park, offer spots, and refer your people to become members. When you hit certain UP levels, you'll earn badges that provide benefits through our hyper-local rewards program. We'll be working with neighborhood shops, restaurants and gas stations to bring you discounts and even free stuff. Those of you who contribute the most will get special rewards, like invitations to real world ParkYou! events and being honored in our newsletter and other communications.
Finally, the more you use ParkYou!, the more you'll get to know other members in areas you park regularly, and the more we'll reduce traffic and pollution. We call this "putting the neighbor back in neighborhoods. So, join our spokesdog Parky, the rest of the ParkYou! team, and a whole bunch of your car owning neighbors to make New York City (and eventually lots of other cities) a little friendlier and easier, and owning a car you park on the street a lot more fun.
