Now it's easier to find monthly parking spots in Toronto

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / June 24, 2014

parking torontoParking in Toronto is seen, by and large, as a complete and total nightmare. Having a reliable monthly spot eases that sting somewhat (well, maybe not as far as your bank balance goes, but you can't win 'em all). If you're looking for a place for your car to call home, a new Toronto-based startup may have the solution.

WhereIPark acts as a handy broker between space-seekers and those with surplus parking spots, offering easy-to-navigate listings (no classifieds-trawling required). Renters can browse through a map to find spots near them, or scroll through a list. Once you've found a spot, you submit your desired rental start date, and if the owner confirms, payment is handled through a secure credit card transaction.

The site, which got off the ground last week, currently lists 30-plus available parking spaces in Toronto, from a $45 spot at Roncesvalles and Wright to $300 for a space at Yonge and Eglinton. Look for more as the project gets rolling.

Has it ever been hard to find a $200/month parking spot in the city? Another stupid site and waste of time

Say WHAT, try finding a spot for under $100/month, good luck!

I rent my downtown condo parking space out for $150 a month. Parking isn't cheap in Toronto. Why should it be?

Doesn't this already exist https://www.parkatmyhouse.com/ ?
What's the difference - except for the fact that this new one has basically no spots avaiable

Parker,

Whereipark seems to be real parking lots, not people's driveways, maybe both...
