Overview

The OpenSpots API provides a list of recently vacated on-street parking spots in the vicinity of a lat/long. The listed OpenSpots events have a location and timestamp when the Openspot was reported. All OpenSpots events represent a public, on-street parking opportunities.

The API is designed for the creation of an in-vehicle parking experience when a driver is searching for or should be aware of parking at their location. As such, it’s not appropriate for bulk download of data in any form. If your requirement is different and this API does not work for you, please contact your INRIX representative.

This is a RESTful API, which is extensible. Callers should safely ignore keys that they’re not expecting.
