Once users install the app and create their account using their license plate number and credit car details, they are able to search for participating parking stations. On arrival, they use the app to summon a valet. On the way back to the garage, they can repeat the process so the car is ready and waiting when they return. The amount owed is charged directly to the card on file, so no payment transaction takes place – the driver can simply hop in and drive away.
According to TechCrunch, the service will expand to other US major metro areas, and will expand to on-street and non-valet garages. The company is currently in partnership with parking garages in 50 cities across five countries – Israel, Poland, Germany, France and the US. What’s more, the company handles more than 2 million parking transactions monthly, and make their money by splitting revenue with the garage proprietor or the owners of the areas where they plan to set up their Pango parking meters.
