For residents of and commuters to San Francisco, finding a parking spot on a weekday can be near to impossible because there are simply more vehicles than there are available parking spaces, but the BMW ParkNow app aims to help alleviate this stress.

The BMW ParkNow app, launched in tandem with a revised version of BMW DriveNow (a car-sharing service featuring BMW's ActiveE electric vehicles), helps drivers by allowing them to pay for parking spots around the city in advance. Users just have to download the BMW ParkNow app on their phones or visit the app's website to reserve a parking space; the app also helps drivers navigate to the reserved space. According to Popsop, the ParkNow app offers guaranteed access and clearly defined rates, and BMW has already opened 14 ParkNow locations across San Francisco.
