Operating out of Park Slope, Brooklyn,  Roadify is an experiment in developing user-powered systems for making public transportation and parking better. The mobile-based platform prompts users to text in the short code ‘GIVE’ to the service whenever they leave a parking spot, and users looking for a spot can text ‘GET’ to find recently available parking. The platform also operates over Twitter using the handle @roadify, where users can access the platform via direct message as well.

In addition to the “Parking Around Me” service, Roadify is taking advantage of the MTA’s recent release of route and schedule data, launching a similar “Buses Around Me” platform for notifying users how long they will have to wait at a bus stop until the next bus arrives.
