Now Ford drivers can save time and eliminate the hassle of searching for a parking space. The new FordPass Park and Pay app offers users the ability to find, book and pay for parking at garages in more than 160 cities in the United States. By searching and paying for a guaranteed parking space before getting behind the wheel, drivers can get to their destinations on time without wasting time hunting for a place to park.
Ford owners that utilize the FordPass platform on their smartphones can access Park and Pay by simply entering their destination. The app instantly shows all available supported parking areas with updated parking availability in real-time and displays how much parking costs at each location. Then by using the secure FordPay option, drivers can buy their parking spot in advance or just drive to the destination that offers the most available and affordable parking. The FordPass app also allows users to bookmark their favorite parking location so they can quickly reserve a spot in the future.
According to a recent Harris Poll, commuters report spending about 14 minutes searching for parking each day. Over the course of a five day work week this adds up to over an hour of time wasted driving around in circles. Over one third of American adults have reported that finding parking is such a hassle they prefer to avoid driving and spend additional money for public or private transportation.
“Finding and paying for parking is one of the biggest pain points for drivers,” says Elena Ford, Ford Motor Company vice president, Global Dealer and Consumer Experience. “This new feature is just one of many ways we are delivering better, smarter, more efficient mobility solutions for consumers with FordPass.”
To get started using FordPass and FordPay, members can download the latest FordPass update on their smartphone. FordPass is a free digital, physical and personal platform designed to alleviate anxiety over parking and offer mobility solutions for everyone.
