Waze's new feature to help find best parking near destination

The navigation app, Waze, has unveiled a new feature that will help drivers find the best parking nearby their destination.

Waze now has a “where to park” feature on its app that will suggest parking lots closest to where the driver is headed while also providing an option to navigate them there.

Waze is teaming up with INRIX, a company that aggregates and tracks real-time traffic information, to help users receive more accurate parking information. INRIX is providing its unique parking data to Waze for this new feature.

"Driving around looking for spots impacts arrival times and adds unneeded frustration and stress to the entire driving experience," said Flavia Sasaki Siqueira, Head of Business Development for Waze. "As the co-pilot for driver navigation, 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."
