Plonk – The Parking Hack


Go Places.Go Explore.Go Plonk – the one tagline that has created buzz in Bangalore city now. Like any other metro city, Bangalore city too, is usually buzzed with long hours of traffic and noise of car honking. However seeing the chaos in various popular streets of Bangalore, two brothers – Arjun and Balram Jairaj, came up with the idea of an effective mobile solution to lighten up their childhood streets with the same space and order. Thus, Plonk happened.

Plonk is a very simple to use app and is available in Android and iOS platforms. People can become users and pay for parking as well as become suppliers of free space and earn for every parking within the space provided. Incase, you have empty space within your home or your tenants are out of station and their parking lot in your home is free for two days, you can immediately register the details of the space with Plonk. Then the team from Plonk after inspection, will approve your space and you can thus generate a revenue from your empty spaces.

Using Plonk will help you find affordable, convenient and safe parking lots in real-time. The app was developed for Plonk by Focaloid Technologies.
