PARKLINQ’s mission is to transition Hawaii to no-hassle, touchless parking.
By enabling drivers to find, reserve and pay for parking spots on their smartphones, we are facilitating a more efficient and enjoyable place to live. We aim to increase parking capacity across the state while allowing businesses and individuals to earn extra cash for their unused parking spots as PARKLINQ hosts.
As a locally owned and operated company, PARKLINQ is committed to not only enhancing our customers’ lives but preserving Hawaii’s natural beauty through a culture of sustainability and environmental stewardship. According to the IBM Global Parking Survey “more than 30% of traffic in a city is caused by drivers searching for a parking spot.” By reserving a spot or hosting a spot with PARKLINQ, users can save time and money while helping to reduce traffic congestion and CO2 emissions.
Tyler Saenz founded PARKLINQ out of a common frustration in Waikiki: finding affordable on-street parking. Out of time to circle the streets, he parked in an empty apartment stall and struck a deal with the owner to rent his spot during the day. That sparked Tyler’s idea to help other frustrated drivers reserve unused parking spots and PARKLINQ was born!
As founder, Tyler is responsible for the overall vision and strategic direction of Parklinq. When he is not working to solve Hawaii’s parking problems, you can find him jumping out of airplanes, diving with sharks, or snapping nature photographs.
When Wes Wendler learned about Tyler’s vision for PARKLINQ, he immediately knew he wanted to be involved with the project. As a passionate environmentalist, Wes shares Tyler’s devotion to an eco-friendly solution to Hawaii’s parking crisis.
As partner, Wes oversees sales operations at PARKLINQ. He is the point of contact for all businesses and individuals interested in listing their parking spots on the PARKLINQ app. Wes settled in Hawaii after 10 years of sailing the world on schooners and catamarans. He spends his spare time enjoying the outdoors with his wife and son and loves to bodyboard the surf of Oahu.
