Fed up with looking for available parking in the heart of London? ParkRight is the app to help you ‘Find the Gap’.

Infra-red sensors have now been switched on in more than 3,000 paid-for and disabled parking on-street parking bays across London’s West End.

ParkRight can even interact with most sat-nav apps, directing motorists to their chosen location.

(The app also shows motorists locations of resident parking, taxi-parking and motorcycle bays. In all, this ParkRight app - developed by Parkopedia for the City of Westminster - provides over 41,000 on and off-street parking spaces covering the whole borough, including well known locations such as Leicester Square, Covent Garden, the West End and Oxford Street.)

ParkRight is the only app providing you ‘real time’ parking availability in the West End and the ability to pay for on-street parking across the City of Westminster.

Very poor The previous app used by Westminster was so much easier to use. This app just wasted my time when I tried to register. Just call the number instead, you'll save so much time. You need to improve the ui/ux in the app. Remember that people will be using the app in the middle of the street, so you want to make the flow very easy for all aspects of the app.

Pointless You need a mobile phone number to sign in and use it and it rejects your number as invalid whether you type it with or without a space. Great help when you are trying to park in central London.
