PORTLAND, Ore. -- If you've ever been to certain sections of Northwest Portland on a sunny Saturday, you know how hard it can be to find parking.
"The big delivery boys get most of the parking. I have to circle and circle. I keep watching my gauge in the car go down," Toni Daniels said.
"It is, competitive," Carla Charlton said.
On a busy day there's lots of cars and not many spots to go around.
Sohrab Vossoughi had the same problem last year when he was trying to find parking for a Timbers match.
"There was nothing available and as usual I was driving around and around," Vossoughi said.
He finally found a spot a mile away and noticed something as he was walking to the park.
"All these small spaces or parking areas that nobody was using," Vossoughi said.
He spotted lots of empty driveways, even big parking lots that no one was using.
Then it hit him, why not let people rent out their extra space when they aren't using it?
Carla Charlton might be one of his first users.
She's got prime parking real estate just blocks from the Providence Park, and wouldn't mind making some extra green on game day.
The new app is called Citifyd and should be up and running by September.
Vossoughi says he has a full legal team working with him, hoping to avoid any problems with the city similar to what Airbnb went through.
