The partnership will make it even easier for Moovit users to drive, park and ride public transit on their daily commutes using SpotHero's network of parking facilities. The San Francisco Bay Area is the first market for the partnership.

According to a survey of Moovit users in the suburbs of San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C., 58% of commuters who drive as part of their daily commute said they spend more than five minutes looking for parking. Of those same commuters, 73% say parking at transit stations is “frustrating.” The survey validates the observation that searching for parking in the “first mile” of a commute contributes to traffic jams in and around urban transit stations, and demonstrates the need for a smart parking solution.

Bay Area commuters using Moovit's Trip Planner can find parking facilities nearest to their transit stations and plan a route to their final destination, eliminating the need to circle for parking. The solution is powered by SpotHero's parking mobility platform, which gives Moovit users access to the largest parking marketplace in North America.

“Moovit is committed to simplifying urban mobility with our app as the one stop for all your stops, and we believe parking is a critical piece of the mobility puzzle,” said Moovit Chief Growth and Marketing Officer Yovav Meydad. “Commuters can help reduce congestion simply by parking at transit hubs, and riding public transit for the “last mile” of their trip. SpotHero is an ideal partner for Moovit to help users drive, park and ride, instead of bringing another car into congested city centers.”

“Parking sits at the intersection of the biggest trends in urban mobility,” said Mark Lawrence, SpotHero, CEO. “We are excited to partner with Moovit to help commuters who need parking en route to a public transit stop reduce stress, cut down commute times, and improve traffic flow around busy transit stations.”

Together, SpotHero and Moovit are easing the burden of parking for multi-modal commuters, making streets less congested and cities more accessible.

The SpotHero integration is the latest in a series of partnerships for Moovit, who recently announced a partnership with Uber in which the public transit information in Uber Transit is powered by Moovit's transit data and technology. Moovit also recently partnered with Microsoft and TomTom to create the first comprehensive multi-modal trip planner.
