SpotHero Launches in Los Angeles to Ease Parking and Traffic Pains
Leading Parking App Makes Parking Easy and Affordable


CHICAGO (July 19, 2016)– Today parking reservation service SpotHero launched in Los Angeles, making parking easier and more affordable for Southern California drivers. SpotHero empowers drivers to find and reserve parking at over 150 locations throughout Los Angeles, including high traffic areas such as LAX, Downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena. The company plans to expand to other locations throughout the city in the near future.


Studies conducted at UCLA indicate that 30% of congested downtown traffic is due to drivers looking for parking. With SpotHero, drivers can plan where they will park in advance and avoid idle searching and circling. SpotHero also addresses Los Angeles’s high cost of living for drivers by reducing the cost of parking by as much as 50%.

“Given that traffic delays and rising costs continue to be among the top concerns for Los Angeles residents, we hope SpotHero can make driving more enjoyable and affordable,” said Mark Lawrence, co-founder and CEO of SpotHero.

SpotHero offers the most parking options in LA — with over 70 percent more than any competitors. Here are some popular locations and rates:
