Parking services provider Parkopedia’s suite of off-street parking services, including reservations and digital payments, are available to Toyota and Lexus drivers in North America.

The Park with Parkopedia service is integrated into the Toyota and Lexus smartphone apps and vehicle infotainment systems, allowing drivers to locate, reserve and pay for parking.

The service covers 60,000 off-street parking locations with more than 6000 reservable locations across the USA, using UK firm Parkopedia’s payment platform to manage transactions. The platform enables drivers to register their payment details using a single secure digital account and then pay for their parking within activated locations. The parking reservation information and navigation can then be accessed via the vehicle head unit.

The Park with Parkopedia service also lets users not only search and manage reservable locations, but also find the closest or lowest-cost parking in one of the 60,000 parking lots and garages across thousands of towns. Customer support is provided directly within the app by Parkopedia, should drivers need assistance with reservations, refunds or any other parking concerns.

“Toyota and Lexus are the market leaders in the US car market with millions of drivers using both brands’ connected services every day,” said Hans Puvogel, COO at Parkopedia. “Drivers want an end-to-end digital solution for parking that unifies and simplifies the experience wherever possible. We are honoured to be extending our parking services with Toyota and Lexus across North America and helping improve each of their drivers’ journeys with an unrivalled parking experience.”

The Toyota and Lexus smartphone apps can be used with 2018 model year or newer vehicles and can be downloaded via the Apple and Google Play app stores.

Parkopedia is a connected car services provider used by millions of drivers and organisations such as Audi, Apple, BMW, Ford, Garmin, GM, Hyundai Kia, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Sygic, TomTom, Toyota and Volkswagens. It helps drivers find and pay for parking, EV charging, fuelling and tolls in 15,000 cities across 89 countries. The firm is also developing detailed parking maps and corresponding algorithms to help drivers and self-driving vehicles navigate to an open parking space indoors.
