Why do we need parko polo?
American motorists spend an average of 17 hours a year searching for spots on streets, in lots, or in garages, according to a 03/27/2019 report. The hunt adds up to an estimated $345 per driver in wasted time, fuel, and emissions, according to the analysis by INRIX, a leading specialist in connected car services and transportation analytics. However, in cities like NY and San Francisco that number goes as high as 107 hours per year with over $2,000 in related costs just searching. When factoring in paying for garages and meters that number surpasses $5,000 in NYC! Metropolitan cities need a dynamic -platform to help drivers communicate when parking is available real time seamlessly. The Parko Polo App does this effectively and affordably!
How it works
SIMPLE. Users who are leaving their parking spot can list it on the app. They earn credits based on how many minutes they wait (1 credit per minute) for someone who is claiming their spot. Users who are looking for a spot use credits to claim these listed spots (3 credits per claim). Credits can be either earned or purchased.
