HOW DOES CAR PAL WORK?

Car Pal is integrated with the City of Chicago's Open Data Portal thereby knowing ahead of time WHERE & WHEN the streets of Chicago are being cleaned. Once you save the location of your parked car, we identify & remind you a day ahead of time to move your car so you can avoid street parking ticket.

PLEASE NOTE

- Car Pal does not own, save or share any of the data presented within the app.
- Car Pal currently only works in the City of Chicago. More cities coming soon!
- Car Pal is powered by the City of Chicago Open Data Portal (https://data.cityofchicago.org/)

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
