Chicagoans Can Now Drive With Peace of Mind & Let ParkJockey Handle the Rest
– from Locating to Reserving Parking & Cashless Payments
CHICAGO ─ September 17, 2014 ─ ParkJockey, developers of the
“One-Touch ParkingT” solution, announces its time-saving and eco-friendly
parking locator and reservation tool is now available in Chicago. The
no-cost mobile application drastically reduces the time spent searching for
a parking spot by providing parking locations, estimates walking distances
and even learns your parking-specific preferences so users can make an
informed and smart parking reservation, pay for it in advance, and
seamlessly sync their reservation with their calendar.
“ParkJockey rolled out its One-Touch Parking reservation application in
London, Miami and New York earlier this year with rapid adoption rates and
we expect to bring the same level of relief to the more than 2.6 million
Chicago residents and nearly 40 million people who visit the city annually,”
commented Managing Partner, James Weiss, ParkJockey Chicago. “Chicago is
known as the City that Works and ParkJockey’s parking application is going
to make sure its dedicated workforce gets to work with less stress and
without overpaying for their parking.”
At launch, ParkJockey’s application included access and reservation
capabilities for more than 6,000 parking spaces in Chicago and this number
is expected to grow exponentially by the end of the year.
“Our advanced team of technology experts and business leaders have invested
and developed an application that eases logistical challenges for commuters
and travelers, while also helping to ensure parking lot owners and operators
are operating at their full capacity and revenue potential,” remarked CEO
and Co-Founder of ParkJockey, Umut Tekin. “But we are not stopping there.
ParkJockey is already planning to roll out its second application by the end
of the year. The premium application has not yet been announced but can best
be described as a ‘virtual valet’; we are expecting it to revolutionize
parking as we know it.”
