Xerox Partners with ParkWhiz to Bring a Seamless Parking Experience to Los Angeles
New app, Go LA, brings access to all forms of ground transportation together in one place
CHICAGO – March 23, 2016 – ParkWhiz, the nation’s largest on-demand parking app, has been chosen by Xerox for its Go LA transportation app, which integrates all available ground methods of transportation in Los Angeles. Go LA allows local residents and visitors to seamlessly navigate the heavily trafficked city in the second largest metro area of the United States. Go LA aggregates and calculates the time, cost, carbon footprint, and health benefits from walking, biking, driving your own car, parking, taking public transit, as well as the emerging private transportation options, giving users a variety of ways to reach their destination.
Through the app, ParkWhiz provides a fast and efficient way for drivers to find and book guaranteed parking spaces before reaching their destination. The app’s other partners include local taxi cab companies, ride-hailing services Lyft and car-sharing service Zipcar, city and county mass transit, and Flitways, an online-pre-booking travel service.
“When thinking of a parking partner for this app, ParkWhiz immediately came to our minds because it is innovative and easy to use,” said David Cummins, senior vice president, Mobility Solutions, Xerox. “ParkWhiz is the perfect partner because it allows us to provide another level of seamless travel experience for our users that prefer to drive themselves and want an easy parking choice.”
“The advancement of transportation technology is giving consumers more options than ever to get where they need to be. At ParkWhiz we are using technology to eliminate the uncertainty that can come from parking in big cities such as LA. Drivers get a guaranteed space, know where to go and know what it costs to park - creating an intelligent parking ecosystem that makes driving as easy as taking a cab, ride share or public transportation.”
The Go LA app is now available for iOS and Android systems in the Apple and Google Play stores at www.golaapp.com.
