If you’ve ever spent a frustratingly long time looking for a parking space, a new service is sure to perk up your ears. You’ll soon be able to find a spot without even having to drive around.
Since you can search online to check the weather before going outside, why not find a parking spot, too? That’s what 32-year-old Andrew Rollert was thinking when he started SpotScout out of Cambridge, Mass. “I am hoping this will kill off the expression ‘looking for parking,’ altogether,” he says.
SpotScout will serve as a kind of eBay for parking spots: Creating an online marketplace where people can trade information about available parking places and even rent out their own driveways.
