AKRON -- It's a problem plaguing any city -- where to park downtown.
Well, Akron is seeing the possible in relieving the pain of parking with a unique idea.
Downtown Akron can be exciting, and constantly on the move... but there is always the same question: Where do you park?
Well, there's now an app for that.
Get the Parking Friend App
Suzie Graham, the president the Downtown Akron Partnership, said "The parking friend app will give you instructions on how to get downtown and the best place to park, based on the location you are looking to go to."
The parking friend app will also tell you exactly what you'll pay to park, how far you are away for your destination and what else you can explore what else is in the area without starting the car.
Graham added that "we have received very positive feedback about it and it does help get people from the point of planning to downtown. It's kind of a quirky fun way to explore parking and we hope it will connect new audiences with downtown."
So whether it's a daily trip or special event, parking in Akron has gone mobile.
