Yes, we have both monthly subscription and on-demand hourly parking options around the city.
No, not with SpotOn Parking. We have special arrangements with our spot owners to make their spots available to our users. Just make sure to observe the spot's availability schedule, which you can check before you check-in to a spot.
You can park at a spot as long as you want during the hours that the spot Owner has set available for the spot. For curbside parking, any city restrictions regarding parking enforcement (hourly limits, street cleaning, etc.) still apply. We do our best to list this information in the app as well.
SpotOn is truly one-of-a-kind. We create new inventory for our Parkers from non-traditional spaces like churches, schools, driveways, and businesses while still enabling you to find parking in commercial lots and garages. SpotOn is the only company that can offer reliable parking in neighborhoods where parking garages don’t exist.
"All you can park" is an all access pass to our network of over 1,000 spots. You subscribe at a monthly rate and in return can use any of our spots whenever they are available and as much as you please. To sign up, email our team at "".
Depending on the location of the spot and the time of day, our parking rates range from $1-$5 per hour. You can always check the app to see a rate before you check-in.

100% is invested back into your community! The majority of the revenue goes directly to the spot Owner and supports local community members and their businesses and organizations. SpotOn charges a service fee to assure that we can create even more parking options for you to enjoy!
"Free" street parking still has its costs. It often requires circling the block hunting for a space and extra walking to get to your destination. 30 minutes a day spent looking for parking equals over 10 hours per month or 120 hours a year wasted. With a SpotOn spot you can see availability in real-time and locate the best option for you. Less driving = more living!
The SpotOn app has a Report a Problem button that allows you to directly email the Customer Loyalty Team. Also, you can always call our support line at (415) 233-4373 24/7.
If a spot appears on our map but it is taken when you arrive, then there is a VIOLATOR! Let our enforcement team know by using the 'report a problem' feature within the app. We'll take care of the violator in no time! Meanwhile, go ahead and check-in to another spot nearby. You're never too far from a SpotOn spot.

SpotOn collects the revenue from drivers electronically and remits the parking fees to you at the end of every month.
We strive to prevent violators by patrolling our spots and checking our database to make sure our Parkers are out in time. The SpotOn app alerts Parkers to move their cars 15 minutes before your spot turns off. In the rare chance that you do find a violator blocking you, you have the right to tow the vehicle or we can arrange a tow for you.
You're free to set your availability calendar to accommodate your schedule. We recommend you list your spot for at least 20 hours per week, and the more hours you list, the more money you can make. If your schedule changes, you can update it on our website. We ask for at least 48 hours notice so that we can alert our Parkers to the change.
