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

Parking 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.
