ParkHub.com Reaches Milestone, Expands into Sporting Hotbeds
Dallas, September 15, 2011 – ParkHub.com, a leading online parking reservation system that is revolutionizing the parking industry, today marked its first anniversary by announcing its 10,000th registered user, illustrating the parking public’s enthusiasm for reserving a parking space before an event. During its first year of operation, ParkHub.com’s online parking reservation system has managed the reservation of approximately 15,000 parking spaces for events ranging from the World Series, Super Bowl and NBA Championships.
The company also announced its expansion into the sports hotbeds of Atlanta and Fayetteville, Ark., home of the Arkansas Razorbacks. Now, ParkHub.com features parking for events at Bobby Dodd Stadium, Centennial Olympic Park, Philips Arena, Georgia Dome, and Turner Field in Atlanta, and at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Ark. They join Cowboys Stadium and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, American Airlines Center in Dallas, Minute Maid Ballpark in Houston, Edward Jones Dome and Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
“ParkHub.com’s first year has been an enormous success for everyone associated with the concept – from the dozens of parking lot owners who have partnered with us to the 10,000 registered users who depend on us to make attending events simple and enjoyable,” said CEO George Baker. “The feedback we’ve received from fans has been terrific. They love getting directions to a reserved space, not to mention a printed voucher so they don’t have to worry about getting lost or spending cash that could be better spent on a program or a couple of hot dogs.”
Event parking presents a range of problems for organizers, parking lot owners and fans. By making it easy to shop for and reserve parking in advance online with a couple of clicks of the mouse, ParkHub.com reduces gridlock, eliminates cash transactions and makes parking part of the fun rather than a hassle.
“We selected ParkHub.com’s Online Parking Reservation System to increase our reliability, assure transparency in reporting and for their competent, dependable reporting service,” said Eric Ward, vice president of Parking Company of America, which owns parking lots in Dallas, Houston and St. Louis. “The ParkHub.com team allows us to maximize revenues by enabling us to presale our parking days, weeks, and even months in advance.”
ParkHub.com is on the leading edge of solving the parking industry’s biggest challenges. According to “2011 Emerging Trends in Parking,” a survey of parking professionals by the International Parking Institute, the number one emerging trend in parking is finding ways to increase parking revenue. Increased demand for cashless or electronic payment was number three. When asked to identify the ‘next big thing’ in parking, nearly half of respondents pointed to technology solutions that improve efficiency and enable cashless payment.
The benefits of ParkHub.com’s Online Parking Reservation System have been especially clear in Arlington, Texas, which hosted both the World Series and Super Bowl during the past year. To keep traffic flowing, the City of Arlington encourages reserved parking on ParkHub.com. More than two dozen lot owners around Cowboys Stadium use ParkHub.com to post parking spaces and manage pricing.
“The team at ParkHub.com is very proactive and helpful,” said Mario Whittmere, owner of Tailgate Tavern at Dallas Cowboys Stadium. “Our requests and concerns are always treated as opportunities to maximize the benefits of ParkHub.com’s Online Parking Reservation System.”
ParkHub.com is already experiencing strong demand for reserved parking the Cowboys’ regular season home games. Reserved parking spaces for the Cowboys’ September 26th home opener on ParkHub.com range from as low as $17.50 for a spot eight tenths of a mile from the stadium, to as high as $129.40 for a spot across the street.
In the coming year, ParkHub.com has plans to expand into additional event hotspots, such as Indianapolis, home of the 2012 Super Bowl, as well as Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, San Francisco and San Diego.
