WINNIPEG – The city has launched a new app to help you figure out where to park when the snow falls.
It’s free on your smartphone and can do everything from telling you your zone to showing which streets are being plowed that day.
The app is available on iPhones and will soon be on Android too.
It doesn’t track the plows in real time but city public works chair Janice Lukes says that is the next step.
“We see real time in Finland and other countries in Europe,” says Lukes. “Ultimately, that would be the ideal goal to get to so I really hope we get to that.”
You can also save different spots in your favourites too.
The city has handed out thousands of tickets to drivers parked illegally since switching to the Know Your Zone system a few years back.
