Can 350 More San Francisco Parking Garages Get People On Public Transportation?

It’s a counterintuitive strategy: get more people riding public transportation by making life easier for drivers. The two apps joining forces – transit trip planner Moovit and private parking finder SpotHero – aren’t creating convenience around driving so much as parking. That, Moovit learned in an internal survey, is what keeps people from using congestion- and emissions-reducing shared mobility on the way to work.

In the survey, Moovit users who both drive and use public transportation as part of their daily commute in San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York and Los Angeles reported parking challenges that informed the details of the partnership between the two apps from unrelated companies.
