I often have to visit Center City, Philadelphia. It takes a lot of time and patience to find affordable parking in the city. The parking signs are intricate and the PPA is looming around every corner. Lyft, Uber, and ParkMobile aid in relieving stress of visiting the city on a weekly basis.
The ridesharing apps allow you to completely avoid the stresses and planning required to park in the city. If I need to be in the city during a peak hour, the chance of finding parking is low, and the chance of finding parking close to my destination is even lower. If you’re on a tight schedule, a Lyft or Uber is typically cheaper than a parking garage.
When its most appropriate to drive into the city, utilizing the ParkMobile app is a must. The app rids the stress of rushing back to your car before your ticket expires or getting a ticket. The app sends you reminder notifications when you parking time is almost up and allows you to add additional time without returning to your car.
