Apple Maps is adding parking information to its service in some areas, by using Parkopedia’s database of pricing, real-time spot availability, and hours of operation of garages and car parks.
Apple Map users will be able to view key information about parking garages and car parks around the world. In addition, users will have the option to click through to Parkopedia’s website and iOS app to view more detailed information including pricing, user reviews, special offers and real-time space availability. They will also be able to make reservations.
“We’re excited to deliver detailed information on more than 40 million parking spaces in 75 countries to Apple Maps customers. This is a very important milestone for Parkopedia. Our combined footprint in the consumer and automotive space is huge and this opens the doors to delivering a world of innovative solutions,” stated Parkopedia’s Head of Marketing, Christina Onesirosan Martinez.
Commenting on the announcement, Parkopedia’s CEO Eugene Tsyrklevich said “The ability to provide parking services to Apple Maps users around the world helps us reach millions of drivers who want to use technology to arrive at their destinations efficiently and on time.”
