Ford chairman invests in QuickPay, an app to make parking suck less


QuickPay, a startup that aims to improve the parking experience, has closed an additional $5.5 million in funding, bringing its total to $9 million. The investors include Detroit-based Fontinalis Partners, which was founded by Ford Motors’ executive chairman Bill Ford.

Back in August, we covered the launch of QuickPay, a startup founded by former NASA executive Barney Pell to improve the parking experience. QuickPay has a mobile app that lets you pay for on-street and off-street parking in lots and garages. Download the app, and enter your credit card information to access a list of garages, parking lots, and gated facilities that are integrated with QuickPay. In a few clicks, you can pay to park in any of these locations, and even scan a QR code to automatically raise the gate.
