A new Ford app allows drivers to select and arrange for a space in a garage to be available at the end of their journey, so they can travel worry-free

Parking in a big city can be a time-consuming nightmare, waiting for people to leave, cruising the streets for an open spot in a garage, you name it. Car manufacturer Ford is looking to make the process a little easier by creating an app that helps drivers find the closest parking and reserve it. The FordPass app allows drivers to select and pay for a specific parking spot before they even get there. It currently works in 160 cities, and updates in real time so new spots are constantly open. User set their destination, choose the spot and price that works best for them, pay for it using a pre-set wallet, and then drive to the garage where their spot will be waiting for them.
