The parkDC application lets users identify and navigate to on-street and off-parking in Washington, DC, with the option of searching for parking spaces by price and/or time period filters. The application also lets users look for real-time parking availability and rate information for the Penn Quarter and Chinatown neighborhoods, in the area bounded by H Street, 3rd Street, E Street and 11th Street NW.
parkDC aims to reduce the time needed to find parking, improve turnover of high-demand parking spaces, provide better parking information to motorists and reduce congestion.
The application provides color-coded estimations of available on-street parking spaces on specific blocks in the area: from limited (red = 0-2 spaces) to readily available (green = 5+ spaces). It provides users with real-time pricing information, which varies by block and by time of day in this area. parkDC also displays the locations and hourly rates of off-street parking facilities in the area and synchronizes with navigation applications to direct users to a desired on-street or off-street parking location.
parkDC also aims to improve mobility by allowing users to filter and search for Red Top Parking Meters (on-street parking spaces reserved for people with disabilities).
