Shimla to launch car parking app for tourists
The Municipal Corporation Shimla on Monday announced the launch of a parking app for the tourists.
The app will help the tourists and local residents to find a parking place for their cars in the overcrowded hill city.
Shimla is facing shortage of parking.The city has over 83,000 registered vehicles and the parking facility is just available to 523 vehicles.Besides the local vehicles nearly 300 tourist vehicles reach the city during the tourist season.
While the parking app will just tell the users about the availability of parking, it will not guarantee the amenity as the city has the facility to park a few hundred vehicles.
The High Court has already banned the registration of new vehicles in the city.
