Luxe Valet App Eliminates the Headache of Finding a Parking Spot - NYTimes.com

Worth a look, if you have the misfortune of driving in a major city on a regular basis

"Luxe is an on-demand valet parking service. When you need to drive somewhere where parking is tough, like pretty much any part of San Francisco, open up the app and tell it where you’ll be going. Then start driving. When you get to your destination, a valet will be waiting for you on the side of the road. He’s wearing a blue jacket bearing the Luxe logo, and he greets you by your name, so you know he’s legit.

Hand him your car keys. Yes, don’t worry, it’s fine. Luxe is insured for $1 million against theft and damage, and it tracks your car with GPS. So, as I said, hand him your car keys. Tell him how long you’ll need your car parked. Watch him drive away with your car. If you want, you can look at the app to see a little icon representing your car making its way to a parking lot.

That’s it. Your car has been parked."
