TORONTO, Feb. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rover Parking, Canada’s leading marketplace for shared, peer-to-peer parking proudly announces that as they celebrate their 1-year anniversary Rover is now available coast to coast across Canada. Rover’s prime objective is to make cities smarter by enabling smarter transportation options through smart services and even smarter partnerships.

“There are a lot of transportation related issues becoming popular concerns not only in our launch city of Toronto but all across the country. These include road tolls, the reduction or removal of transit and commuter train parking lots, heavy congestion on highways and city streets, high gas prices and automobile pollution. On top of all this, consumers want new ways to make some extra side income. What Rover is doing is providing a key part of the solution to these ever increasingly relevant issues,” says Co-Founder Grant Brigden.

“Traditional parking uses a centralized approach whereas Rover is a completely distributed parking solution. This key difference gives us the very unique ability to offer new, more advanced solutions to both the city and the consumer. 2017 will see many smart city initiatives and partnerships begin to take form all across Canada and Rover is excited to be a key driver of these programs. The bottom line is that the people of Canada now have more flexible choices for their transportation needs and can now use options that make more sense for their individual needs,” says Co-Founder Tim Wootton.
