The Verge reported that in order for Waze to do so, the Google-owned app has partnered with transportation data firm INRIX.

The feature, called "where to park," suggests parking closest to the destination, according to a news release from INRIX.

If users do not select parking before travelling to their destination, the app will give them the option to select navigation to parking as they get closer to their location of choice.

Waze's "where to park" feature is available on iOS and Android.
