As well as making parking cheaper and easier, YourParkingSpace promotes efficient use of existing space. This means using our roads in a more sustainable way, leading to:
- 75,000 hours saved looking for parking
- 355t CO2 emissions saved
- 54,000 trees planted every month to offset carbon emissions
Founded in 2012, YourParkingSpace had a vision to change the way the world parks. And they would do this by creating more accessible parking.
They imagined a world where parking is seamlessly integrated into our travels through smart technology. The result is easier journeys thanks to a digital parking network for more convenient, affordable, and sustainable parking.

The YourParkingSpace platform – available across web, IOS and android – connects drivers with over 350,000 privately owned and commercially operated parking spaces across the country. Drivers can book parking on-demand on an hourly, daily, or monthly basis.
For users, this means quicker journeys as they spend less time looking for parking spaces. So, journeys are shorter, which means fewer emissions. This leads to cleaner air and greener cities.
The YourParkingSpace app also features the largest database of EV charging stations. So, drivers can book charging points in advance too. With an influx of new users, YourParkingSpace asked us to improve the platform so it could cope with the increased demand.
In 2018 we worked on a series of projects to improve user experience and acquisition. We also developed third-party integrations for seamless functionality. Later, in 2019-2020 YourParkingSpace saw more substantial growth. They were keen to make sure their infrastructure could service the rapidly growing user numbers across multiple devices, endpoints and locations.
We created a feature roadmap, UI/UX wireframes and cost-benefit analysis. We then integrated new products. Now, the platform works seamlessly across the web, IOS and android. The YourParkingSpace app is now robust enough to deal with fluctuating traffic, varied booking schedules and real-time inventory updates.
We developed secure API integrations to process and provide data. So, YourParkingSpace can now partner with third-party car park operators and referral platforms like confused.com. We continue to support YourParkingSpace, providing regular updates and improvements for their continued success.
