• Earn money for yourself
• By sharing your Spot you'll help alleviate estimated 30% of urban traffic caused by drivers hunting for parking
This depends on parking demand in your area and the amount of availability of your schedule. The range varies widely from $50 to over $300 per month for a favorable spot.
OpenSpot 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 drivers are out in time. The OpenSpot app alerts drivers to move their car 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 or through the app.
OpenSpot is launched in our home city of Vancouver, British Columbia. We are currently expanding into other cities in British Columbia. Sign up, be the first to know when we launch in your neighbourhood.
OpenSpot has worked extensively to cultivate a working relationship with the proper authorities. Our platform only allows people with the rights to the parking spaces themselves to list them.

No, not with OpenSpot 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 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.
OpenSpot is truly one-of-a-kind. We create new inventory for our drivers from non-traditional spaces like churches, schools, driveways, and businesses while still enabling you to find parking in commercial lots and garages. OpenSpot is the only company that can offer reliable parking in neighborhoods where parking garages don’t exist.
Depending on the location of the spot and the time of day, our parking rates can range from $1-$8 per hour. You can always check the app to see a rate before you check-in. For monthly subscribers, our subscriptions start as low as $40 per month and can save you up to 80% per month off of the hourly rates!
Back into your community! Most of the revenue goes directly to the spot owner, supports local community members, their businesses and organizations. OpenSpot 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 OpenSpot you can see availability in real-time and locate the best option for you. Less driving = more living!
The OpenSpot app has a Report a Problem button that allows you to directly email the Customer Service Team. Also, you can always call our support line at (778)-791-3277. 24/7
