Lyft users can now search, reserve and pay for parking spaces from the app in cities across the United States, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Drivers can access the new Lyft Parking feature by tapping the steering wheel icon in the lower-right corner of the Lyft app, according to Lyft’s website.
The parking reservation feature is made possible through a partnership between Lyft and SpotHero, a Chicago-based parking company, and is available through the iOS and Android versions of the Lyft app.
The SpotHero service is available in over 300 cities in the US and Canada, but it’s unclear which cities are covered by the Lyft integration. Lyft only says that “Lyft Parking is currently available in select U.S. markets.”
A demo of the new parking feature shows available parking spaces shown on a map with clearly labeled prices, much like an online hotel reservation. Users can search for an available space at their final destination, then follow the in-app instructions and scan a QR code to reserve it. Those wishing to use the feature will need to add their license plate number and other car details to the app.
