A NEW APP has been released that seeks to make it easier for motorists in Dublin to find a parking space.

The app gathers the most up-to-date information about available parking spaces and then directs motorists to them while avoiding traffic and diversions.

The app is developed by Dublin city business group DublinTown and is available on both iOS and Android platforms.

The app takes information from city, private and hotel carparks and was developed in collaboration with Dublin City Council, the National Transport Authority and city businesses.

The CEO of the DublinTown business group Richard Guiney says that the app is particularly timely given the traffic problems Dublin is enduring during Luas construction and the changes to traffic flow that will persist afterwards.

“The city is and will remain very much open and accessible to all forms of transport including cars, however, there is a need to educate the public how to get to their chosen destination,” Guiney says.

The app will also have details about roadworks and diversions that will be update throughout the day.
