For most fans, finding a place to park at a game or event can be the worst part of the experience. Not only can it be expensive, but it can also take time away from enjoying what you bought tickets for.
Thanks to a new partnership with ParkWhiz, the Red Sox hope the app will be able to take the pain out of parking for Red Sox fans and people attending events at Fenway by allowing them to discover and instantly book parking spaces in advance.
“There are many advantages to having a ballpark in an urban setting but parking can certainly be a challenge,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President Troup Parkinson. “We are pleased to partner with ParkWhiz to ease the strain of finding a parking space before a game or event at Fenway Park. This is a service our fans will find useful and convenient.”
As part of the partnership, ParkWhiz becomes the Official Parking App of the Boston Red Sox, giving fans the option to reserve and pay for parking through the ParkWhiz mobile app or through Fenway Park’s website.
“We know parking is really a means to an end – the thing you have to do before watching the Red Sox win,” says Dan Roarty, president and COO of ParkWhiz. “By creating a way to easily find and reserve parking, ParkWhiz can help fans save time, effort and money that would be better spent enjoying the game.”
If the Red Sox live up to the hype surrounding the team and the payroll that comes with it, ParkWhiz should come in handy throughout the year.
