THE FUTURE OF PARKING. ALL IN ONE APP.
ParkNow enables cashless payment for both on and off-street parking.
The future of parking in one hand: Skip the ticket machine and check-in with the in-app digital ticket.
FIND AND PAY FOR PARKING VIA APP OR DIRECTLY FROM YOUR CAR.
ParkNow provides an overview of available on and off-street parking. For on-street parking, a digital ticket is activated by a single click in the app. At a garage, the parking transaction automatically starts and finishes with ticketless entry and exit. Billing is at the end of the month, with payment by direct debit, PayPal or credit card.
Our involvement with Parkmobile is the next step towards making ParkNow the world’s leading provider of premium parking services.

Did you know …
… that up to 30% of city traffic in Munich comes from cars trying to find a parking space?
…that 55% of all cars in Berlin park outside on the street?
… that ParkNow users save up to seven minutes every time they park? (No more looking for the ticket machine, finding change and displaying the ticket in the car.)
In January 2018, the BMW Group has acquired Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of mobile parking services in North America. Parkmobile, whose brands also include ParkNow, serves 22 mio customers in more than 1,000 cities in Europe and North America. This makes the BMW Group the leading international provider of digital parking solutions.
When a car parks on the street, ParkNow automatically recognises whether any parking fees apply and a digital parking ticket can be generated directly from the vehicle with a single click. The parking transaction is automatically ended and paid for when the car drives off. In addition, the ParkNow smartphone app provides an overview of parking time and costs at any time (available in BMW vehicles built after 1 Nov. 2016; requires optional Navigation system Professional and ConnectedDrive services).
ParkNow has been available in Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland since 2016.
In April 2016, the BMW Group increased its stake in Parkmobile and acquired 100% of the Parkmobile Europe Group.
Parkmobile services can be used in other manufacturers’ vehicles, regardless of brand. Parkmobile is already offered by a number of different manufacturers, including Volvo.
On 8 January 2015, the BMW Group stepped up its commitment in the field of innovative mobility services by acquiring a stake in Parkmobile International Holding. With around 10 million customers in more than 600 cities around the globe, Parkmobile is the world’s leading provider of mobile on-demand payment systems for public parking. The partnership significantly enhances the ParkNow offering.
On 21 August 2012, Dr. Ian Robertson (member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales and Brand BMW, Aftersales BMW Group) announced the launch of the ParkNow pilot project in San Francisco in the US.
