The Waze traffic app is being updated to help you find the best parking spots.
The company has teamed up with INRIX, which aggregates real-time road traffic data from a variety of sources to provide parking information and services to various automakers including Audi, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Toyota and Volkswagen. Waze will integrate INRIX’s parking information with its own database so that the app can expand the accuracy of its “where to park” feature that was recently introduced. The app will also display pricing information and parking capacity numbers.
“Driving around looking for spots impacts arrival times and adds unneeded frustration and stress to the entire driving experience,” said Flavia Sasaki Siquiera, Waze’s chief of business development, in a statement. “Waze has begun to rollout the first of its parking suite features to solve this issue for drivers. Combining INRIX parking information with our own parking database expands reach and accuracy of the ‘where to park’ feature.”
