Reset Review: SFPark - San Francisco's Parking App

By: Kate Maeder

 

Last April, SFMTA released a real-time parking app called SFPark, so that San Franciscans can stop circling and start parking. The app isn't perfect (not sure we expected the people who run the SF MUNI to be perfect at 1.0) - but it is, for the most part "spot on" as the Chronicle's Rachel Gordon's writes yesterday on her experience with the app.

"The high-tech parking hunt isn't foolproof. But during a Chronicle road test on a recent afternoon with the manager of the SFpark program, the parking data was, for the most part, spot on."

We wrote about the glitchy SFPark app when it launched - so we decided to hit the streets and test out the app for ourselves. Take a look.
 

And don’t forget to tell us if it works for you.
