Company Summary

Comparable to phone booths, the five million coin-operated parking meters in the United States today have not changed a bit since they were implemented over 75 years ago. In today's world, these traditional coin-operated meters fall short in meeting the needs of today's motorists and municipalities. Located in Tucson, AZ, Park Genius sees an opportunity to improve upon outdated technology by offering an alternative, coin-free method of payment.
