Two innovative transport startups, GoGet  and Divvy Parking, have announced a partnership.

The aim is improving Sydney's transport network and parking efficiencies for commuters suffering traffic congestion.

Divvy Parking recently signed partnerships with major property groups DEXUS, GPT and Knight Frank and secured $2.5 million in funding.

Divvy Parking and GoGet will use their respective platforms to connect GoGet’s fleet of 2000 cars to parking spaces in Divvy’s growing commercial portfolio, following the rollout of the parking platform’s industry changing access technology.

GoGet will leverage Divvy’s network to connect with commercial parking space owners and managers in CBD office towers, who are eager to improve the yield on under utilised spaces, with the aim of securing a wider variety of GoGet reserved spots for users in Sydney. 

The partnership will see GoGet and Divvy partner and integrate in Sydney first, with a national roll out following later this year.

Meanwhile drivers looking for a cheap parking deal were possibly not considering the consequences of parking with unestablished organisations, according to Garth Mathews, Secure Parking founder.

“Although we too are moving from a bricks and mortar business to a digital shop front, Secure Parking’s 30 years of experience in the industry means we have all the right procedures and systems in place, to ensure that our customers are benefiting from a full service management system.

“This includes public liability insurance, surveillance cameras, regularly maintained technology and cleaning, and a dedicated customer support centre in the event something goes wrong – important benefits other players aren’t considering.

"With emerging technologies, we can now combine that, with flexible, cheaper parking rates too,” he said. 

Secure Parking has been operating for several years with Secure-a-Spot, an online booking service which provides an end to end solution and accounts for over 160,000 parking bays booked each month.
