Introducing Park Circa – a start-up that “connects people who have empty parking spaces during a set time to people that need them.” Hey, you’re at work all day, you might as well make the most out of your parking spot by helping out a frustrated driver and making some extra cash in return. It’s community crowd-sourcing at its best.

According to the company’s site, “Park Circa connects people who have empty parking spaces during a set time to people that need them. We enable coordination between neighbors and friends, so that your community resources are optimized for everyone’s benefit.” This would be especially beneficial for parking spot holders in areas of the city with a density of nightlife and traffic, i.e. Mission, North Beach, the Haight. In the Outer Sunset – hm, not so much.

And if you are a driver in need of a parking spot, this service could be incredibly useful. Plus, it’s only $1/hour!
