Swappy Car Launches Its New Community-Based App To Solve The Street Parking Problem In NYC

NYC Street Parking gets a new solution with Swappy Car.

The street parking issues across New York City are worsening each day as the avalanche of cars, bike parking, and outdoor restaurant structures are making streets more crowded than ever. According to one source, the city has observed an increase of 224% in car ownership in 2021 alone.

This is why New York City-born and raised Kristen Sgarlato has created a new problem-solving app, “Swappy Car,” a community-based app that connects people who are leaving their street parking spots with those looking for street parking in that area. The app also offers a future availability function that allows users to find spots ahead of time.

Kristen vividly remembers as a child circling the block for hours with her family in search of parking. Now, as an adult with a car of her own, she has realized the true magnitude of the problem. 

“The parking situation in New York City has gotten out of hand. Monthly spots are through the roof, and street spots are far and few between. There’s a problem and no real solution, so we’re trying to create one!” Stated Kristen Sgarlato, CEO and Co-Founder.

Kristen teamed up with her Co-Founder and CTO, James Tansley, and they got to work. Swappy Car has future plans to include an interactive map showing street parking rules, ‘leaving now’ alerts, open-spot crowd-sourced posts, and a subscription feature allowing users to turn their rewards points into garage parking credit.

With the Swappy Car app, users can now simply download it and input their search parameters to find all available spots meeting their criteria. Once a spot is chosen, the “Swapper” will be alerted. For every fulfilled reservation, both the “Swapper” and “Swappie” will be rewarded, thus making sure that no street parking spot is wasted.

She says, “Us New Yorkers must come together to find a solution! The more users we have, the more spots will be available. Let’s continue to build our community together!” 

Get the app on the app store by searching “Swappy Car”.
