The parkDC application lets users identify and navigate to on-street and off-parking in Washington, DC, with the option of searching for parking spaces by price and/or time period filters. The application also lets users look for real-time parking availability and rate information for the Penn Quarter and Chinatown neighborhoods, in the area bounded by H Street, 3rd Street, E Street and 11th Street NW.

parkDC aims to reduce the time needed to find parking, improve turnover of high-demand parking spaces, provide better parking information to motorists and reduce congestion.

The application provides color-coded estimations of available on-street parking spaces on specific blocks in the area: from limited (red = 0-2 spaces) to readily available (green = 5+ spaces). It provides users with real-time pricing information, which varies by block and by time of day in this area. parkDC also displays the locations and hourly rates of off-street parking facilities in the area and synchronizes with navigation applications to direct users to a desired on-street or off-street parking location.

parkDC also aims to improve mobility by allowing users to filter and search for Red Top Parking Meters (on-street parking spaces reserved for people with disabilities).

To ensure the safety of users of this application and others nearby, please do not use this application while operating a motor vehicle

Terrible app. Simply terrible

Don’t waste your time. There’s nothing intuitive or helpful about this app. I pulled into an open spot, downloaded the app to pay, but there’s no option to pay. You still use the meter instead of the app. What a waste of time. Useless app. ParkMobile is SO MUCH BETTER.

Easy to understand

This app helps identify where meters are and their corresponding ParkMobile zones. It would be great to also pay with parkDC, but the combination of both parkDC and ParkMobile works.

Just awful

Wanted to be able to extend my parking time remotely but as I tried to find the zone and space nothing appeared. Forced to use the old school meter instead. Developers: this isn’t rocket science... :o(
