Our Mission

Saving the world, one bad parker at a time.

Barnacle Parking began with the goal of improving the parking enforcement experience for both enforcers and motorists. We thought there had to be a better, safer, easier way to treat non-compliant motorists—something other than the boot or towing. There wasn’t, so we invented The Barnacle®—an intelligent device that operators can deploy easily and violators can remove themselves once they pay their fine online or by phone.

Today, Barnacle brings updated technology to 21st-century parking through a smart device that visibly drives compliance. Serving municipalities, universities, health systems, parking operators, and more, we’re redefining and enhancing the experience for the enforcer and motorist. Our parking enforcement solution moves everyone forward.
