Help Alleviate On-street Parking Congestion

Qu Parking is an innovative mobile application that allows homeowners to rent their unused parking space (such as a driveway) to drivers in the area in need of parking. This will help alleviate on-street parking congestion with off-street private parking. By doing this Qu can help cities start dedicating their valuable land to other initiatives that will help the community rather than parking. We plan to also get integrated into public and commercial parking as well.

Qu Parking has innovative scheduling and availability inside the app that really separates them from the competition. Qu plans to leverage Bluetooth in vehicles, as well scan license plates to create a comprehensive platform that will automate the parking process.


Qu plans to innovate in all facets of parking as well as other verticals that have common touchpoints. Eventually, Qu plans to provide services for autonomous and electric vehicles that will soon take over the market. As well as provide invaluable data to cities to help them rethink transportation and city planning.
