Parkhit wants to offer a solution to the scarcity of parking in major cities like Montreal by providing a collaborative platform to help reduce the time spent looking for parking. For an outing in town with friends, to attend a festival or a concert, to run multiple errands in one day, or go to a medical appointment, PARHIT is the solution. In only a few easy steps, you will know that a parking spot will be waiting for you and you will save several hours a year driving around for parking.
We advocate self-help as a strategic and logical way to meet the growing need for parking in major cities. Since urban planning does not allow for more parking spaces, the PARKHIT platform enables us to optimize their use at a low cost while allowing users to make money by helping another user to his or her parking in return.
Road traffic generates significant adverse effects on the environment. Whether it's through noise, our infrastructure, the greenhouse gas emissions, and carbon dioxide emissions reaching nearly 138 million metric tons in 2014 according to Statistics Canada, or even all kinds of pollution-related illnesses. Cars provide a convenient, efficient and fast mean of transportation, except when citizens like in Montreal, spend over 300 million hours a year on major roads. Parkhit encourages and privilege public transit, but for the few uses you will make of your vehicle, minimize its use by going directly to your destination.
