You might’ve heard that we’re using what3words to help you find your parking. But what is it?  

What3words is a simple and fun way to identify precise locations. Every 10-foot square (in the world!) has been given a unique combination of 3 words.   

Learn how it works in this short video: 


We love what3words addresses because they are unique and more precise than postal addresses. We’ve assigned a what3words combination to each parking location’s entrance so that you can more easily navigate directly to your parking lot or garage. For example, you can find the entrance to our 1468 Randolph Street location by using [///train.awake.hope]in the free what3words app or using Google Maps from their website.   

How can you use 3 words to find your Detroit parking?

How do you use it?
