Hate driving and the headache of parking in Toronto? Help is here. Parking Panda , the leading U.S. on-demand parking app, has announced its first international expansion into Canada by introducing guaranteed parking reservations to Toronto drivers with a smartphone.

With a little planning done ahead of time, Canadian city drivers and sports fans can now book hassle-free parking and outsmart the crowd with third-party parking reservations at over 20 partner parking lots and garages.

Users have the ability to compare available options and prices, and search, reserve, and pay for event or everyday parking throughout downtown Toronto.

In addition, one-hour parking can be as low as five dollars with the app, and Toronto customers can view all Parking Panda locations on an interactive map showing real-time availability and distance.

How does it work? Once a pre-purchased reservation is made, customers can easily access parking passes through the mobile app.

Drivers booking at select PandaScan locations in Toronto can access parking through the company's innovative, fully-automated scanning technology.

PandaScan allows customers to use their phone to easily scan in and out of locations.

As Parking Panda is furthering its North American presence alongside its partnership with the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), the company says that fans can now pre-book parking within easy walking distance of the Air Canad a Centre , home to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, and the Toronto Rock.

City drivers can also book guaranteed parking near attractions throughout the city, including the CN Tower, Harbourfront Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and the Rogers Centre, among others.

Sounds like a dream. Now if they could only use a panda to scan away all the traffic on the 401, DVP and Gardiner…
