SP Plus

New for 2017, this app was developed by the City of Atlanta through its ATLPlus parking program. Available on both Android and Apple devices, the service allows drivers to pay for parking spaces that were previously metered. In addition to this convenience, the app also sets off reminder notifications when the paid parking period is about to expire. While this free application might not be feature-rich, it’s worth a look as the only option specific to Atlanta.


This robust application is capable of using GPS navigation to direct you to open parking spaces on the street, in parking lots, and in parking garages. Users only need to enter a destination address, and the app will automatically locate the nearest available parking options. The software is free on both Android and Apple devices. It’s a good all-around choice, but may not have comprehensive parking data for every area in the city.


SpotHero is a free app offered for both Android and Apple devices. Users are able to pay with their Google accounts when they search for and reserve parking spaces in advance. By relying on its relationships with parking facilities, the service is able to pass on a savings of up to 50 percent to its customers.

Parking Panda

This free application is configured to find parking spaces in 40 different cities, including Atlanta. One advantage of this service is the ability to prepay for parking, so that you can arrive at your spot and proceed directly to your destination. As Parking Panda partners with several professional sporting organizations and stadiums, this makes it especially useful if you’re going to a Braves or Hawks game. It’s available for both Android and Apple phones.

Best Parking

Another free option for Android and Apple devices alike, the Best Parking app offers an even more specialized type of service. In addition to locating general parking spots all over the city of Atlanta, Best Parking is tailored to help its users find the best parking options at over 100 airports in over 100 cities. Customers who have previously searched for parking at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will appreciate the additional convenience when this app does the legwork for them.

Parking in the city can be an ordeal even at the best of times. With this list of apps, you’ll be armed with the tools you need to find parking spaces more easily.
