RSVP: ParkNow Allows Drivers to Pay & Reserve Parking Spots in Advance

Posted By on Wed, Nov 27, 2013 at 8:00 AM

Four letter words inevitably come to mind while hopelessly in search of an available parking spot.

Those words momentarily release stress but don't make the task at hand any faster or easier. So how about in lieu of those naughty four letter words we instead go with a four letter acronym: RSVP.

ParkNow is a new app created by BMW that not only helps frustrated shoppers find a parking spot but also allows them to reserve and pay for it well in advance through their smartphones.

Already active in more than 50 parking garages in San Francisco, including locations in Union Square and the Financial District, ParkNow aims to brighten your Black Friday woes.

Give it a shot. It's better than wasting fuel and shouting profanities in front of the kids. Park and be merry instead!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
