Parking Stress is a Thing of the Past


Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2006 -- Stress, frustration, feeding the meter, expensive tickets ... parking is just one of those inevitable hassles of life, right? Not anymore. Forget about scrounging for quarters, getting a ticket if your meeting runs long, or dealing with surly parking attendants. Spark Parking will offer the first public demonstration of its driver-friendly mobile-phone payment system for parking at the O'Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference in San Francisco, CA on Jan 25.

Spark Parking uses high technology to make paying for your parking quick and easy. Simply drive in to any Spark Parking space and make one brief call from your mobile phone. Then, go enjoy yourself for as long as you like. No need to worry about feeding the meter!

"Spark Parking simplifies the entire parking access and payment process by allowing parkers to 'log in' to their parking spot using their cell phone. Ingenious!" says Ted Wallingford of the VoIP Weblog.

The Spark Parking System, built from a unique combination of open-source telephony software and wireless sensor hardware, offers drivers relief from parking headaches with a simple phone call.

"There are a few cell-phone parking payment systems out there, but Spark Parking has done it right. They make it quick and easy to pay for your parking space and you never have to worry about paying too much or too little. The Spark Parking System keeps track and always charges just the right amount!" says Brian Thompson, General Manager of Northwest Parking Control in Portland, Oregon.
