About AppyParking

Appyparking is a free parking application which helps drivers navigate UK's biggest cities complex regulations and see parking restrictions before they get to their destination. As a result drivers save time and money and can find a space easily.

AppyParking have worked with councils across the nation to digitize and standardize parking regulations. The app allows drivers to see all of the on-street and off-street parking options including controlled parking zones, car parks, disabled bays and free zones.
To ensure motorists aren't stung by fines, the app marks zones that are available to park in green, and closed-off areas in red. In just a few taps, motorists can see the "Nearest & Cheapest" parking spaces available. Drivers can even look up their destination to find the parking space before they get there.

Since January, AppyParking also shows the cheapest and nearest petrol stations across the UK. This feature has the potential to save Londoners up to £33 a tank when driving only 3 miles to a different station.

AppyParking is currently available in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Coventry, Norwich and Cambridge and is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.

AppyParking Story

AppyParking was borne out of the frustration that CEO and co-founder Dan Hubert felt when he was unable to find the parking regulations whilst parking outside the Royal Albert Hall.

"I was going to a gig one night at The Royal Albert Hall, trying to park was a complete nightmare as all the paid bays and resident bays were full and they had different controlled hours to add confusion. I noticed hundreds of yards of empty single yellow lines and thought; 'If I could park on there I could park like a VIP right outside the entrance'. I asked a passing traffic warden forhis opinion. He said I was fine to park here after 6.30pm. When I asked where the signs were he helpfully said signposts were two streets away! It was then that I realised there was a problem that desperately needed fixing."
