The Leader in On-Demand Valet Parking Comes to Los Angeles

LA Drivers Never Have to Park Again, Thanks to ZIRX

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) - ZIRX, the leader in on-demand valet parking, today announced it has expanding service to Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica. This new expansion builds upon ZIRX's offerings in San Francisco and Seattle, making ZIRX the first on-demand valet parking service in three cities.

Last week, ZIRX again led the on-demand valet market, as the first to launch in-app requests for car washes, refueling and long-term parking. These new in app offerings make owning a car that much easier. 

"LA drivers drive nearly one million miles each year looking for a parking space, which burns nearly fifty thousand gallons of gas," said Sean Behr, CEO and Co-founder of ZIRX. "We are thrilled to be able to solve such a big problem for Los Angeles."

The LA launch is also just in time for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season. ZIRX will be offing $5 parking in all three cities November 27-30, 2014.

Every year, LA drivers waste 56 hours in traffic, followed by more than 20 minutes searching and paying for parking, and then walking to their final destinations, which are often many blocks away. On a national level, looking for parking generates about 30% of the traffic in business districts, negatively impacting the environment and causing additional stress for drivers.

ZIRX is solving the frustration and time wasted by parking with smart technology, seamless operations and exceptional customer service. Via its app, ZIRX delivers a secure, convenient and fast on-demand valet parking experience. The app allows customers to choose a drop off point on a map and see the name and photo of a properly vetted and trained Agent who meets the customer within 7-10 minutes. The agent provides a security code and parks the customer's car in a secure, managed garage. To retrieve the car, the customer uses the ZIRX app to select their desired return location and ZIRX handles the rest, summoning an agent to deliver it. The complete experience costs $15 and is covered by ZIRX's industry-leading $2M insurance policy.

ZIRX is taking on the $30 billion U.S. commercial parking industry by providing customers with a seamless experience through the power of their smartphones. Not unlike how Netflix replaced the video store or Uber replaced hailing a taxi, ZIRX takes the nuisance of parking out of daily life. Like Uber, ZIRX makes getting from one place to another convenient through an on-demand mobile application.
