BMW Sets Launch of ParkNow Mobile Parking Service
San Francisco is at the forefront of cities working to develop and implement innovative approaches to urban challenges, including traffic congestion and the need for smarter, greener parking systems.
There are an estimated 505,000 vehicles in the city, yet only 448,000 parking spaces are available at any given time. On weekdays, the total vehicle population increases by about 35,000. An estimated one-third of all downtown traffic on weekdays is due to vehicles searching for a parking spot.
“The BMW Group is more than a premium car company,” Robertson said. “It is also focused on developing and delivering new services to help meet the increasing need for flexible mobility solutions in our cities.
“The premium car-sharing service DriveNow and parking solution ParkNow will help meet that demand in San Francisco and, ultimately, in other cities.
“Our introduction of these services in San Francisco represents BMW’s commitment to encouraging the development of new mobility options that will reduce emissions and congestion and improve the quality of life for San Franciscans.”
