(MENAFN Editorial) BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --ParkWhiz announced today it has expanded its service in Boston to make more parking available to drivers, with rates in downtown Boston as low as $17 for a typical eight-hour workday.
Customers can now choose from more than 5,500 spaces at nearly 100 garages or lots in advance, removing the frustrations of driving in circles, surge pricing and parking tickets. The company will feature deals in congested areas like Back Bay, Fenway Park and the Theatre District, saving drivers up to 50 percent off standard rates.
To celebrate the expansion, ParkWhiz will launch its "Random Acts of Parking" campaign where Bostonians will receive free gifts over a four-week period. Rewards may include theater tickets, stadium seat upgrades, a dinner for two or paying for a person's parking ticket.
"We identified Boston as an ideal market to expand our service since it's one of the most expensive places to park in the country," said Aashish Dalal, founder and CEO of ParkWhiz. "With the high demand for more affordable parking, we're continuing to add new locations to give commuters a faster and more efficient way to free themselves from the hassles of everyday travel."
By searching for parking with the mobile app and website, drivers can compare prices, review garage amenities and calculate the time to walk from their car to their destination. After booking a spot, customers receive a digital parking pass which they can display on their smartphone for validation.
Unlike other parking apps, ParkWhiz has integrations with auto manufacturers and major e-commerce platforms, such as Ford, Ticketmaster and StubHub.
Boston is the first city in ParkWhiz's nationwide expansion. Announcements of new locations in other major cities will take place over the next six months, increasing the company's network of garages and lots.
More thansix million people have parked with ParkWhiz. The company partners with parking operators to give customers access to one of the world's largest online parking inventories at approximately 7,000 sites nationwide.
Headquartered in Chicago, ParkWhiz is the one of the most popular on-demand parking services. The company's website and mobile platforms provide a fast and efficient way for drivers to find and book parking spaces before reaching their destination at thousands of parking locations across the country, from New York City to Chicago to San Francisco. ParkWhiz is an official partner and parking provider for Ford, Concur, and StubHub among many others. ParkWhiz has helped more than 6 million drivers seamlessly get where they need to be.
