Mobile Parking App Comes to The Nation’s Capitol

As thousands of drivers head daily into DC, Pentagon City or Bethesda either for work, meetings, or sightseeing, parking is often a very daunting part of these efforts.

But thanks to a new (and free) mobile app, plenty of drivers will never struggle to find parking again.

Colonial Parking, the largest parking operator in the DC Metropolitan Area, announced this week that it will exclusively provide real-time occupancy information for more than 100 of their parking facilities in DC through its partnership with ParkMe, a provider of real-time on-and-off street parking information.

This new feature allows each Colonial customer to personalize the parking experience by receiving recommendations based on the driver’s location, the type of vehicle, and duration of the driver’s stay. The real-time information will be available on both Colonial and ParkMe’s parking app, in addition to Colonial and ParkMe’s websites.

“Providing real-time information to consumers enhances customer service and adds yet another amenity to Colonial Parking’s partners and retail consumers,” says Andrew Blair, President and CEO of Colonial Parking. “We believe providing residents and visitors to the Nations Capital real-time parking information is groundbreaking for the industry and will serve our clients and community for years to come.”
