Parkopedia to provide parking services in Apple Maps

Parkopedia, a global parking services provider, says it’s providing its parking services to Apple Maps on OS X and iOS devices. Apple Maps users will be able to view key information about parking garages and lots around the world.  

In addition, users will have the option to click through to Parkopedia's website and iOS app to view more detailed information including pricing, user reviews, special offers and real-time space availability. They will also be able to make reservations.

Parkopedia is used by millions of drivers and organizations such as BMW, Ford, Garmin, Jaguar Land Rover, Peugeot, Toyota, Volvo, and VW. It provides static information on 40 million parking spaces in over 150,000 facilities across 6000 cities in 75 countries — including real-time parking space availability information in over 500 cities in 30 countries.

The service allows drivers to find the closest parking to their destination, tells them how much it will cost and whether the space is available. Parkopedia also allows drivers to pay for parking online, through a mobile app and in-car.
