Share Article

Today, Seattle-based Gridz launches its social network for vehicles to help commuters find parking and facilitate communication between drivers . Anyone can now download the free Gridz mobile application from either the App Store or Google Play, and everyone should be on the lookout for promotional events in multiple cities across the country later this afternoon.

Almost everyone has had the frustrating experience of looking for a spot and mouthing to another driver “Are you leaving that space soon?” Now, Gridz will allow you to communicate with every driver in a neighborhood simultaneously.

Today, we are proud to launch Gridz, an innovative mobile application that helps people park and communicate between vehicles.

Almost everyone has had the frustrating experience of looking for a spot and mouthing to another driver “Are you leaving that space soon?” Now, Gridz will allow you to communicate with every driver in a neighborhood simultaneously. -- Philip Garland, CEO and co-founder of Gridz.

To help commuters find parking easier, people using Gridz can set parking timers that others can see on a map, color-coded by length of time remaining.

Beyond parking, by enabling direct communication between cars, the app revolutionizes almost 100 years of honking, hand waving, and light flashing. Gridz users can help each other by sending either a direct message, or selecting from one of the Gridz pre-written notifications (e.g. “Left Your Lights On”)

Gridz is now available for free on iOS and Android.

To help grow the Gridz community, we will be hosting events in several US cities this Wednesday (November 4thth) to get the word out, and build a solid foundation right from the start.

As a safety precaution, Gridz disables itself when it detects the car is moving faster than 10mph unless the app operator verifies that she/she is the passenger
