Real-time app takes hassle out of parking in Cape Town CBD

A new mobile app has been launched, designed to make the process of finding parking in the city less taxing.

The app, called Park Find, is Africa’s first real-time parking app that helps motorists locate an available parking space, navigate their way there, and pay for their parking.

Zunade Loghdey is the owner of parking management company Street Parking Solutions and explains that real-time vehicle detection sensors have been installed in each parking bay over the past five years.

Loghdey says the app is set to reduce congestion in the city centre and improve commuting for motorists.

This app is a green app and is a congestion-busting technology.

The app is available for all iOS and Adnroid users.

Currently, ParkFind can only be used in the Cape Town CBD between 8:00-17:00 on weekdays and 8:00 -13:00 on Saturdays.

It is not available after 17:00, Sundays and Public holidays.

Loghdey says the app could be expanded to other areas and operate 24 hours a day in the foreseeable future.
