Matthew Yglesias Bait

Park Circa connects people who have empty parking spaces during a set time to people that need them. We enable coordination between neighbors and friends, so that your community resources are optimized for everyone’s benefit. We help organize and publish parking schedules and we facilitate payment between parties, so that people can find parking when they need it and where they need it. Drivers find a place to park, and space owners make some money on their empty driveways. Everyone wins.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Matthew Yglesias has been doing some excellent work on unleashing market forces in urban settings, especially regarding parking and the impact of zoning on urban development.

    I’ll have to go and read Matt’s stuff, but the first thing that came to mind was the parking space wars in Cambridge and Somerville in the winter, and the ethics of using an old sofa to hold your (cleared out) parking space vs using a lawn chair.
