In today’s busy world, mobile apps seem to be the solution to just about every problem a University student can come up with. Parking apps are no exception. Campuses across the United States are adopting new technology in order to better measure their parking availability in order to help students park faster and smarter.
These new mobile apps give students real time access to open lots and some are even as specific as which spaces are open within a lot. Not only can these apps let students track availability, they also give students access to monitoring their parking sessions, parking history, extending their current parking session and even pay for their current space using a debit/credit card.
The goal is really quite simple: make parking simple, accessible, and available for all those who are coming to campus.
