Finding parking in downtown San Diego can be difficult, but what if there was an app for that?
The nonprofit Civic San Diego has announced plans to scout out a developer that could create a mobile application and website that would provide real-time parking information to those who visit, live and work in downtown San Diego.
Right now, CivicSD is publicly requesting proposals for the “Downtown Parking District Mobile Application” from any and all interested developers, including proposals from local firms and small businesses.
The deadline to submit a response is 4:30 p.m. on Apr. 24. For materials and instructions on submitting a proposal for the app, click here.
According to CivicSD, the mobile app and website must include a map of the downtown area, filtering tools and “real-time data and information related to on and off-street parking, general parking information, graphics and photos.”
Ideally, the app will be compatible with multiple sources of data and provide GPS-enabled navigation to the parking destination.
The website will also include a map and filtering tools, just like the app.
The goal is to have the mobile app and website up and running by this summer.
