No more headaches, no more fines!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 14, 2015) -

Editors' Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

prkng, a Montreal-based start-up, just launched a new mobile solution to facilitate parking for drivers in urban centers. The prkng mobile app lets users see authorized parking spaces nearby, as well as provides the neighbourhood-specific parking rules and regulations for the current week. Users can also check-in their location to receive a notification when they need to move their car to avoid getting a ticket.

The app was launched on July 6 in Montreal and Quebec City, and will be available in several other North-American cities in the future.

By fall 2015, prkng users will be allowed to reserve and pay for parking spaces from privately-owned lots on their phone, thanks to partnerships with Montreal pay-per-use lot owners. This upcoming feature will be introduced to all cities where the app will be available.

"In this era of innovation and smart cities, it made sense to develop a digital solution that would help drivers by making parking easier", precised Arnaud Spuhler, prkng Co-Founder. "In addition, with the collected data, we will be able to position prkng as an important player in the intelligent transportation sector and thus help governments and businesses to better understand local traffic tendencies."

prkng is the first business to join YP Labs, a Yellow Pages project that supports business start-ups by providing them with resources and space.

prkng app is available now on the App Store.
