SpotPog, a new app that allows drivers to find free and paid spots throughout New York City, launched in Brooklyn on Monday, June 22 and is being praised by local officials and organizations as a smart solution for the city’s parking problem.
The community-centered approach allows users to swap free spaces and rent out driveways.
“Brooklyn has a serious parking problem,” said Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. “We need an innovative approach to help residents find spots in their own neighborhoods, or when running errands and attending local events. SpotPog has the potential to meet this mission, employing our smartphones in a smart way to help reduce traffic congestion, decrease street-level pollution, and allow for more drivers to visit our local business districts.”
