ParkWhiz Expands to New York - Aims to Eliminate NYC Parking Tickets
Online Parking Pioneer Launches Daily & Monthly Parking with Over 200 locations in NYC
CHICAGO, July 25, 2013 – ParkWhiz, the largest and fastest growing online parking company in the U.S., today announced that it has expanded its service to provide comprehensive New York City parking. In addition to the already popular special event parking that the company has offered in NYC since 2009, New Yorkers can now purchase daily or monthly parking in advance, and avoid landing one of the nine million parking tickets issued by New York City every year.
The company's web and mobile apps allow users to compare price, location, walking time and amenities, and to book the perfect parking spot close to home or the office. After the transaction, customers receive an electronic parking pass to print or display on their smartphone. The free service minimizes the hassle of driving in circles looking for a decent parking spot.
"We are thrilled to be able to further our presence in NYC and to offer access to over 200 locations in the NYC area for advanced purchase," said Aashish Dalal, CEO of ParkWhiz. "In addition to saving our customers time, money and gas, our service offers peace of mind, and that is priceless."
Present NYC monthly parking rates range from $125 to $1,000 depending on location and amenities. The current average monthly rate is $350. A monthly parking pass provides unlimited in and out access and parking agreements are made on a monthly basis. In addition, ParkWhiz's parking partners offer a number of added benefits ranging from discounts on car washes to cash for cab rides for those parking near the Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
"We are excited to partner with ParkWhiz," said Adam Spindler, Operations Manager for ParkIt Management. "Now that our customers have the option to book monthly parking online through ParkWhiz.com, it's easier than ever before for them find the perfect location at the perfect price. We're happy to be a part of that process."
