Two global parking technology companies, Parkopedia and JustPark are partnering to provide motorists across the UK with what they say will be an easier and more complete way to find, book and pay for parking.
Parkopedia’s platform, which enables connected car drivers to search for convenient local parking, now hosts JustPark’s available parking locations, enabling drivers to book and pay for on-street and off-street parking through their vehicles, in addition to via Parkopedia’s consumer website and mobile apps that are used by millions of drivers each month.
They explain that integrating JustPark’s available parking spaces will see Parkopedia build its footprint of pre-bookable parking in the UK while increasing the exposure for JustPark’s parking inventory to millions of Parkopedia’s UK users which gives drivers more parking options to suit their needs and creates additional revenue opportunities for JustPark’s network of space owners.
JustPark’s locations are a combination of commercial parking operations, such as public on-street, multi-storey commercial car parks, shopping centre and hotel car parks and less traditional, community parking spaces.
Parkopedia’s connected car drivers will be able to pre-book JustPark’s reservable locations and pay on-demand for on-street parking at selected locations through their navigation system, making payments using their in-car wallet – meaning there will be no requirement to use their phone or bank card to make a payment.
Anthony Eskinazi, Founder and CEO of JustPark, said: “Parkopedia offers an outstanding service to motorists around the world, allowing them to seek out the best parking on offer to them. This landmark agreement allows more than 100,000 of JustPark’s extensive collection of parking locations to be seen by Parkopedia’s considerable UK audience, while enhancing its users’ experience by offering even more parking options and the ability to book and pay for our spaces on the platform for the first time.”
Commenting on the new partnership, Founder and CEO of Parkopedia, Eugene Tsyrklevich, added: “This new partnership with JustPark adds to Parkopedia’s already extensive bank of parking locations, offering UK drivers the greatest choice and convenience possible, with the benefit of Parkopedia’s seamless in-car Payment Platform for reservations and payments. By combining our technology and enabling in-car payments, Parkopedia and JustPark continue to reduce the stress associated with finding and paying for parking. This should also ease the third of all inner city congestion that is currently attributed to those looking for parking by enabling smoother journeys with simpler parking planning and reservations.”
