SpotHero Launches In Philadelphia During Philly Tech Week


Leading App Makes Parking Easier For Philly’s Tech Community, Larger Metro Area


CHICAGO (April 28, 2016)– Today parking reservation service SpotHero announced its official launch in Philadelphia, just in time for Philly Tech Week 2016. Drivers and Tech Week attendees can now find, reserve and save on parking near several Tech Week venues and other popular destinations around the city, including Philadelphia International Airport, 30th Street Station, Kimmel Center, Independence Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. SpotHero’s team will also be present at Philly Tech Week’s Kickoff Festival to celebrate the launch and connect with the tech community.


SpotHero’s launch during Tech Week 2016 is especially timely given Philly Tech Week’s dedication to innovation and the local community. As a tech solution for an everyday problem, SpotHero makes life easier for drivers living in and visiting the city. SpotHero offers parking reservations at more than 55 parking facilities in Philadelphia, with savings up to 30 percent off the drive-up rate.

“Our decision to launch in Philadelphia was in large part a response to demand from parking operators as well as drivers who have used and relied on SpotHero in other cities,” said Mark Lawrence, co-founder and CEO of SpotHero. “We are excited to bring easy, affordable parking to drivers in Philadelphia and continue expanding our presence on the East Coast.”

SpotHero partners with parking operators who give the company access to their unsold spots. Drivers are then able to find and reserve parking with convenient garages, lots and valets through SpotHero’s iOS app, Android app or website.
