Penny Parking

One tap to park, one tap to go
Team Name: 

We are creating a parking app which will help to streamline public car parks and payments. We will achieve this by negotiating a continuous 'pay as you go' system for public and kerbside car parks which would be incorporated into in-app payments and parking inspector's data so no need to carry petty cash in your car; it also means that you're not paying for unused time. In addition, we'll have a buddy system, similar to Uber, which notifies users when other users are about to leave parks close to their destination.
