City of Las Vegas Partners with “Waze for Parking” App, SpotAngels
to Help Users Find Parking and Avoid Tickets
Las Vegas Leads Country in First-of-its Kind Partnership
SpotAngels, the leading community-based free parking app that helps drivers find parking and avoid tickets announces today its launch in Las Vegas as part of a curb management project with the city. The goal of this partnership is to ease the parking headaches for both residents and tourists looking to enjoy the city. Over the past year, the app saved drivers in cities including New York, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia and more over $10M in parking tickets as well as time and money finding parking.
“The number one complaint we get from citizens is their inability to find parking and we’re hoping to change that with this partnership for both our residents and the tourists that keep this city running. SpotAngels information will greatly help our customers make informed decisions and we are excited to see the results on our annual customer survey.” says Brandy Stanley, Parking Services Manager at the City of Las Vegas.

How it Works
SpotAngels, the “Waze of Parking,” works by displaying a map with the location of all street parking spots, parking lots and garages, helping drivers find free and cheap parking, comply with the rules and avoid tickets. For each spot, the app shows all the rules such as street cleaning, loading zones, no parking hours and all other restrictions, prices of meters and rates of garages. In addition to these features, SpotAngels has integrated mobile payment and advance booking platforms, providing a one-stop-shop for parking and availability for the entire Las Vegas area.
All the parking information on SpotAngels can be easily updated directly on the app. Also, the app shares information with others to make it easy to find parking. It knows when you leave a spot and displays it to the rest of the community. These parking patterns collected from the community are then used to make recommendations on where you’re likely to find an open parking spot.
How SpotAngels is Different
The uniqueness of SpotAngels is not only in the fact that it’s the first to display all the street parking information but also in the fact that it is crowdsourced. It is the first app in the industry to create a voice for the parkers to help make their own parking experience better.
“We are thrilled to bring SpotAngels to Las Vegas and for the very first time show citizens and visitors absolutely all the parking information and payment options around them,” says Hamza Ouazzani Chahdi, co-founder of SpotAngels. “We are very excited to be working with the City of Las Vegas, one of the most forward thinking cities in the nation!”
SpotAngels has previously established its community of drivers in several metros nationwide including San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Washington D.C., Philadelphia. In 2018, the app was featured by Apple and Google as “Waze for Parking” among the best apps. The company is backed by the co-founder of Google Maps, Lars Rasmussen among other Silicon Valley investors. SpotAngels is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and is free to download and use.
