Parking Tricks in San Francisco

May 8th, 2009 · No Comments · Rental Cars, san francisco, San Francisco Discounts


Parking in San Francisco has basically sucked for a long time. It’s either expensive, inconvenient, or impossible. A new site that contacted us however – has consolidated parking information in one convenient spot. They call themselves “Gottapark” and boy do I gotta park when I am going out in San Francisco.

It’s basically a Craigslist for parking spaces. You can make a quick buck renting your driveway or garage, and big parking lots downtown list too. You pay on the site, and then print out a voucher for your parking.

What we like about Gottapark is that it reveals a lot of “underground” parking that wouldn’t normally exist. The guy who lives next to Union Square, who rents out his garage; a big empty lot; and many other very weird options. If you want to be a little planful in a place where it’s smart too (very crappy parking) – it can make parking in San Francisco a little easier.

When we searched for parking spaces around “very popular” locations like Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square and Embarcadero Center — the ease of comparing prices *BEFORE* you go is amazing. GottaPark makes it super easy to figure out the best price / location before you are driving around in traffic. Check it out – especially if you are headed to a popular spot like Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.
