The online parking encyclopedia traces its roots back to 2009, and was founded by Eugene Tsyrklevich who also serves as the travel company’s CEO. The name Parkopedia is a combination of the words parking and encyclopedia. Think of Wikipedia, but for parking spaces.
What is Parkopedia?
Parkopedia is where you can find a lot of information about parking: where a space is available, if it can be booked, if it can be paid for by credit card or if you’ll need coins. Their aim is to be a Wikipedia for all things parking-related. Parkopedia combines the two concepts in order to allow people to find the cheapest and most convenient parking available, no matter where they are or where they are going.
Parkopedia is the world’s largest parking information provider used by millions of drivers every month online and through its iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone apps. The travel site mobile app works in 75 countries, across 6,308 towns and cities with no fewer than 38,018,900 parking spaces. It can be accessed online, by SMS, as a mobile app or inside the car navigation systems of some of the world’s most recognized car brands.
Parkopedia’s information also appears inside the navigation systems of companies including Audi, BMW, Ford, Garmin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Peugeot, Toyota, Volvo, and VW.
Navigating through the official site of Parkopedia, it’s quite noticeable that the web page is similar to an online library search site. Thus, it gives you the option to “Where would you like to find parking?” The website of Parkopedia gives you more of the option to download and install their mobile app from the App Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Store. Options to get the link are found at the bottom left or at the top right of the page.
Travellers could also add parking maps to their website, license their parking data or promote their parking space. Either of which, the features are found at the center of the page next to the search box.
Parkopedia Reviews of Customers
We looked at several Parkopedia reviews; we found comments at the Google Play Store, and iTunes. The good news: they got an overall score of a 4/5-star rating. The bad news is the most recent feedback are actually complaints. On a positive note, one reviewer recently said, “Find places to park wherever I go I hate paying for parking. This app finds me free or cheap parking in every city I visit.”

After reading through several comments and reviews about Parkopedia, we are convinced that this travel site is one of the best reliable sources to find parking you prefer. It might have been that Parkopedia was recently established, but the idea was actually a great help for people like us who travel to places we are not aware of: especially since some places have their own parking rules.
