Parking spaces have long been lauded as a critical part of residential buildings. People who live in apartments, condos, and other buildings need a place to park their cars when they come home each night. Over the last few years, however, there’s been a significant shift in the way people view both driving and parking–and it’s changing the way transportation needs are being handled.
Innovative auto companies are manufacturing cars that park themselves, but what about cars that find their own spots? Wouldn’t that be an innovative way to solve street parking frustrations? Currently apps alert drivers to available spots but if engineers, urban architects and developers get their way those apps will only be part of an entirely automated parking ecosystem. Here are a few ways urban centers of the future will make the most out of available parking space so that you don’t have to circle the block.
During the winter, you know exactly how beneficial ParqEx can be. After all, it’s the best way to find a parking space close to your location so that you don’t find yourself freezing before you walk to your destination! During the summer, in the warm weather, however, ParqEx has a number of other benefits that you shouldn’t ignore.

Recently, Toronto Metro wrote an article about parking; not Chicago parking but parking nonetheless. Parking isn’t just a problem in Chicago, or even the United States for that matter. Parking sucks in Canada, too.
Let me summarize an article written by Matt Elliot before you head over to read it directly from him. Basically, the Toronto Parking Authority (TPA) is a public agency. They strive to help the parking situation across Toronto.
In 2016, the TPA plans on spending over $340 million on parking expansion. Like I said, the TPA is a public agency. This large sum of money could be directed elsewhere, but instead it’s being used to fund huge parking garages and parking lots – essentially, patches of land for cars to sit in.

This is just another article that validates the ParqEx business model. You may be asking yourself: why are you posting an article written in Toronto about the Toronto parking situation? Well, the answer is simple. Every city in the United States has some problem with parking. The simple response to the limited supply of parking in cities is to build more massive parking garages.
ParqEx has another solution. As a people, we can do more to solve the parking problem ourselves. For example, Chicago Parking in the West Loop is extremely difficult. If every business and individual listed their parking spaces on the ParqEx platform and made them available for rent when they are not using them, parking instantly becomes more available – not to mention the revenue these businesses and individuals will receive from listing and renting their spots.

It’s pretty simple. Share your parking spaces. Help others. Make money.
ParqEx is a technology company that connects owners of private parking spots to people looking for parking. In urban areas where parking demand is high but available options are scarce or expensive, ParqEx makes additional supply available to the driving public by listing exclusive inventory owned by local residents and businesses.
Using ParqEx, parking owners are able to make some supplemental income from an underutilized asset while renters get access to exclusive inventory in more convenient and hard-to-park locations. The ParqEx support team ensures that the entire process of listing, reserving, parking, and paying is as smooth as possible for all involved.
ParqEx has also developed the revolutionary Access+ Technology. With Access+, residents and approved visitors can open the garage door from their smartphones. Property managers and condo boards can simplify management and improve control of the garage.

When thinking about parking, especially parking in Chicago, most people either get bored or frustrated. Let’s be honest, it’s not necessarily a subject you talk about at the bar with your best friends (at least I hope not).
Parking spots are usually used for one thing and one thing only: to store a vehicle. But sometimes, people get creative and do other things with them. Like what??? The following may surprise you…
