Solving key challenges in connected and autonomous mobility, ParkWhiz is establishing the Arrive Network to make it easier for drivers, fleets and their vehicles to park in lots and garages without pulling a ticket or reserving a space in advance. A powerful last-mile solution, the Arrive Network combines new wireless technologies with ParkWhiz’s innovative parking platform and industry-leading parking inventory footprint. Any driver using an Arrive-powered app or registered vehicle will experience seamless payments and truly friction-free entry and exit at participating lots and garages.
ParkWhiz has already begun adding drive-up mobile access to hundreds of its network locations in select North American cities. Additionally, the company is deploying wireless and Bluetooth technology in select Chicago parking garages with its partner TIBA, through its ParkBlue product. The first of many partnerships, ParkWhiz plans to roll the technology out to thousands of parking locations over the next year.
“This is a huge step forward in connected mobility. Our reservation-based experience already reaches 40 million customers through our apps and partners like Ford, Ticketmaster and Groupon. The Arrive Network will allow consumers to park at will across an expansive network of locations by simply driving up and having the gate lift. It’s a game changer for consumers, operators and fleets. No more tickets, vouchers or expense reports,” said Yona Shtern, CEO and Executive Chairman of ParkWhiz. “We are excited to collaborate with industry-leaders like TIBA to make friction-free parking a reality.”
“We’re pleased to be working with ParkWhiz to bring ParkBlue, our innovative new cloud-based parking and access management solution, to the United States and Canada. TIBA’s substantial install base, together with ParkWhiz’s massive consumer reach to drivers through its distribution network and our deep collaboration on the technology side will create simple, fast and delightful parking experiences for millions of customers,” said Moshe David, CEO of TIBA.
ParkWhiz has led the industry in innovative parking solutions since 2007. It has helped millions of people save time, stress and money, offering drivers up to 50 percent off standard drive-up rates.
