Parking App

Drive straight to an open spot.

In 2014, Boomtown Accelerator graduates, Ryan Sullivan and Rishi Malik, learned that about a third of the traffic in busy downtown neighborhoods comes from drivers who are actively looking for a place to park. Bad parking isn’t just a personal inconvenience—it fills the streets with distracted drivers, causes avoidable pollution, and makes downtown shops and restaurants less appealing to prospective customers.

Sullivan and Malik knew there had to be a better way, so they founded ParkiFi to change the equation. Tapping into the growing power of the Internet of Things, they developed patented single-space sensors that give the ParkiFi interface up-to-the-minute data on each parking spot.

Rolling out to cities nationwide.

ParkiFi makes parking as easy to find as your destination, for everyone, everywhere, by giving you accurate, real-time information about current parking.

  • Parking Operators: ParkiFi has launched our IoT-enabled, wireless, single-space parking sensors across the U.S. and is currently operating in over 70 locations in 6 markets. ParkiFi delivers spot-level data – occupancy, turnover, dwell time, prioritized enforcement notifications, and pricing optimization opportunities – to help you transform your portfolio, and increase your revenue.
  • Consumers: ParkiFi's mobile app shows Denver customers what parking is available, where it is, how much it costs, and how likely it is to stay open until you get there. And you can even pay for your parking spots directly through the app. So you can just park and get on with your day.

ParkiFi creates smart, healthy and sustainable cities for everyone, everywhere. ParkiFi has raised three rounds of funding to date, and is proud to be recognized as one of the top startups in Denver.
