The Sharing Economy Can Be Hilarious

September 14th, 2016 Posted by AirBnB, Community, Funny, Hilarious, Lyft, ParqEx, sharing economy, startup, Uber No Comment yet

There are so many benefits to the sharing economy; the most obvious being that it makes life easier in many ways. Before Uber and Lyft, it was much harder (and more expensive for that matter) to get to where you wanted to go. Before ParqEx, it was impossible to park in dense areas like Wicker Park, West Loop and Wrigleyville. The sharing economy flat out make life easier, better and in this case, absolutely hilarious.

ParqEx Launches Initiative to Improve Parking in West Loop


Joins West Loop Community Organization

If you haven’t heard yet, ParqEx will work with fellow members of the community group to augment parking supply while benefitting local residents and businesses

Over the past several years Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, which was largely industrial or residential in nature in the past, has seen a massive surge in all types of development – including commercial and retail. New big name tenants like Google, who recently opened their latest Chicago office for over 500 employees there, and trendy hotels and restaurants, have made the West Loop one of the hottest areas in town. However, those establishments have also brought many more commuters and visitors to the neighborhood without sizable increases in parking to accommodate them. The result has been mounting frustration with the scarcity of parking options available to meet all the growth.
