San Francisco Residents Sell Parking Spaces In Their Driveways Online


Never having been to the Kentucky Derby, I didn't know that people in the neighborhoods around Churchill Downs sell parking spots in their driveways and yards to Derby goers. I guess it's quite a zoo, with people posting signs with their desired parking price, some yelling price quotes and a lot of negotiating going on.

Well the idea has now spread to San Francisco, where ParkPlease debuts this weekend to coincide with the Outside Lands music festival. ParkPlease allows residents to post their yards, lots, spots, alleys, driveways and garages to a map so potential parkers can line up a parking spot in advance.

And it's working apparently- business has been brisk so far. The Atlantic Cities blog has the details.
