Organic Parking (Cambridge)
Organic Parking was developed from a collective need for a better city parking solution. The app's creators, having spent years driving (and parking) in cities around the world, are no strangers to the difficulty of parking on busy streets. After researching barriers that exist with our current free-for-all system, the Organic Parking team found three points to address: it's often hard to find a public space, it's difficult to afford a private space, and it's stressful to make plans without a guarantee of finding parking.
So we asked ourselves — what if a person that is parked where you plan to be could save a spot for you until you arrive? Well, with a greater portion of our population making smartphones part of their everyday lives, we knew that our solution relied on the development of a communication and exchange platform between these two drivers. Our goal is to facilitate this interaction within your community, so you can be able to park your car seamlessly and affordably, no matter where you go, and never stress over city parking again.
