AppyParking: directing drivers to free parking spots

About Appyparking

AppyParking was founded in 2013 to “take all of the guesswork out of parking” and save drivers stress, time and money. Serving over 50 communities in the United Kingdom, the application is designed to show drivers where and when free parking is available, where to find paid meter bays and off street car parks, and even where it’s ok to park on single yellow lines.

Searching for parking in congested London is notoriously challenging. Not only is the traffic overwhelming, but the colored curbs have specific meaning with different rules depending on the time of day. To address this issue, AppyParking decided to create a mobile app that helps drivers across the United Kingdom understand parking regulations and find open spaces. The app serves as a comprehensive database for parking information.

Google Maps Platform Results

  • Helps drivers find real-time available parking spots in congested London areas and show general parking information across 10 nationwide cities
  • Shows drivers where parking is free, restrictions apply and special types of spaces – such as electric-car charging and motorbike spots
  • Allows drivers to quickly and easily navigate to available spaces
  • Available in 10 UK cities listed with general parking information

100,000+ users leverage the Maps-based app

"AppyParking has helped more than 100,000 users find parking spaces faster and with less stress. We’ll continue to expand our app to provide more actionable information for drivers and have added confidence knowing that we can rely on Google Maps tools."

Dan Hubert, CEO and Co-founder, AppyParking

The AppyParking solution provides rich, reliable data that’s accessible via a user-friendly interface. The app pulls data in varying formats from many sources, so the team created a Parking Platform, which converts different formats into a usable API. That data is integrated and layered on top of Google Maps using Places Autocomplete feature for Android, iOS and the web. The app color codes parking spots to show drivers where there’s free parking, where restrictions apply and where special types of spaces – such as electric-car charging and motorbike spots – are located. For example, red means restricted, and green means free.
