PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The days of circling the block for a parking spot could soon be over – that’s thanks to a new online parking program that is giving commuters a chance to find a parking space.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is announcing more details about ParkPGH, the new high-tech tool, today.

The program provides real-time time parking space availability at eight downtown garages – that’s a total of about 4,800 spots.

Officials say a ninth parking option will be added to the program in January. Then, it will show the availability of 5,300 spots.

The tool is available by iPhone app and online at ParkPgh.org.

The website refreshes itself every 30 seconds to keep the most up-to-date information available.
