What You Need to Know

Chadwick Meyer
Park Circa has been the side project of a couple geeks who saw a parking problem and believed neighbors could work in their own best interests to help each other. This business has been like a siren, wooing us with promised riches and ego stroking praise. People say this idea is "brilliant", investors flocked to our side from around the world, people sign up every day and share their spaces around the country and around the world. But at the end of the day, not enough people are sharing their spaces in the target neighborhoods where we have ...

Thinking unholy thoughts?

Casey Cobb
This is the first in our series of postcards going out to select neighborhoods in Berkeley and San Franciso over the coming weeks and months. The first five people to send us a picture of them holding a real honest-to-goodness postcard from the wild get $20 in free Park Circa credit added to their account! Send us the picture via a post to our Facebook wall, twitter feed or a link to their Instagram feed - or a plain old email if you're just old fashioned like that.

Park Circa is focused on micro-sharing excess capacity of parking spaces. But people (like you) also have excess capacity in their random daily schedule, e.g. students, the temporarily unemployed, stay-at-home moms, etc. We want to build a community of people that see the huge ...

What's Happening at Park Circa?

Before I give an update, I want to remind you of our vision. Long term, Park Circa is working to create a private network of micro-shared spaces where members can use our app to easily find parking anywhere in the city for the same price as a single space in a single location. This is accomplished by optimizing the usage of each space, and creating a market for all that unused time. The idea is more exciting today, than it was a year ago when we did our soft beta launch. So why haven't we succeeded yet? Well, we're doing our best, but we are ...
