What is JustPark?
JustPark is Europe's leading provider of pre-bookable parking. The idea is brutally simple: we connect drivers in search of parking with anyone who has a space going spare, whether in a car park, private driveway, church, school, or pub.
Every car journey begins and ends with a parking space. And we believe in happy endings. The JustPark platform lets you browse, book and pay for a space that suits you down to the ground, without having to rely on the goodwill of the Parking Fairy. Drivers are finally able to take charge of the process from A to Z and make their way from A to B, hassle-free.
Sounds like a paradox?
We're huge fans of public transport, but sometimes, driving is the only option. The UK Department for Transport predicts that car ownership will soar by 45 percent in the next 20 years, meaning more pressure on parking spaces and more frustrated drivers. That's where we come in. Read more...
Making the most of urban space
The world's city streets are clogged with cars. By unlocking hidden off-street parking spaces, our goal is to ensure that every empty patch of tarmac fulfills its parking potential. This maximises the use of an asset in seriously short supply and helps cities function better.
Reducing motorists' carbon footprint
A study by IBM in 2011 found that 30 percent of city air pollution is caused by desperate drivers on the hunt for parking. By enabling drivers to reserve a parking space before they set off, we’re stopping people from driving round in circles. Or going round the bend.
Promoting integrated travel
By providing spaces near stations, we’re making it easier for people to park near transport hubs. This enables drivers to travel by car for part of the journey and then switch to public transport - which is better than driving the whole way.
