JustPark is a free parking app for Android and iPhone to find cheap parking space. The app database helps you find more than 200,000 parking spaces in over 1,000 cities including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, London, etc. around the world. You can simply choose any city on the map and then it will automatically display all the available parking spaces in that city. The parking spaces which are displayed by this app for different cities are actually registered with JustPark such that you can directly pay and reserve a parking space before even you get there. The parking spaces are scattered across stadiums, airports, stations, and so on.
In addition to that, it will also show the walking distance from your current location and the cost of the parking spaces. As per the app owners, they claim that the cost charged by JustPark is cheaper (by nearly 70%) than that of street parking. The best feature of this parking app is that you can directly book any parking space by paying the reservation amount on the app itself.
This Parking space finder follows a very unique model to find cheap parking spaces. It has tied up with home owners who have extra driveway or a parking space, and want to rent that out. So, essentially, the parking space you get is one from them, and in the process they also end up making some money. Win-win situation for everyone.
Note: JustPark app is also available for both iPhone as well as Android, but I have only reviewed the Android version in this post.
How to Use this Parking App on Android to Find and Book Parking Space:
After you install and open up this app on your Android phone, it will ask you to enter your destination where you would like to find parking spaces. You can either choose your destination by clicking on the “Park Nearby Now” if the location is close to your current location or you can use the search bar to enter any destination you want.
After the app finds the destination location selected by you, it will ask you to enter the date and time for “Arrive At” and “Stay Until”. Once you do that, you can simply hit the “Search” button to find the parking spaces which are available on the destination location.
When you hit the “Search” button, it will automatically find all the parking spaces on that location and display them on the map with drop pins. Apart from that, it will also show the walking distance and cost of each parking space. Additionally, it also shows the availability status of the parking spaces.
Now, you can simply tap on any of the parking spaces to see the route, the time duration of parking, the time it will take you to reach the parking space, and most importantly book the parking space. To book a parking space, you can simply tap on the “Reserve” button and then add your vehicle by entering your license plate. After that, you can select the “Payment” option and pay the amount via Credit/Debit card or PayPal. Remember, the cost of the parking space totally depends on the time interval which you have selected in the first step.
In addition to that, it also shows the rating of the parking space, photos (if available), and a 3D street view of the location with the help of Google Maps.
JustPark is probably one of the best parking apps for Android. It makes finding parking spaces much easier for anyone who is using the app. Not only that, it also helps you book and reserve a parking space even before you reach the location. Personally, I like this app as the entire concept of this app is very useful for all the vehicle owners who find it difficult to park their vehicles.
