Parking operations refer to the management and organization of parking facilities, such as parking lots and garages. This can include tasks such as directing traffic, enforcing parking regulations, collecting fees, maintaining equipment, and ensuring the safety and security of the facility and its users. Below we’ve listed 6 ways your team can boost revenue at your property.

Parking operations can vary widely depending on the type of facility and its location. For example, a parking garage in a busy urban area may require more staff and security measures than a small parking lot in a rural area.

Efficient parking operations can be important for businesses and organizations that rely on parking facilities to attract customers or provide convenient access to their facilities. Effective parking management can also help reduce traffic congestion and improve safety on roads and in parking areas.

Contactless payment: With the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increased focus on contactless payment options in parking operations. Many parking operators have adopted mobile payment systems, allowing customers to pay for parking through their smartphones, reducing the need for physical interactions and cash handling.

Automated Parking Systems: There is a growing trend towards automated parking systems that use advanced technology such as robotics, sensors, and artificial intelligence to optimize the use of space, improve efficiency, and reduce operational costs.

Parking Guidance Systems: Parking guidance systems are becoming more popular in large parking facilities, especially in urban areas. These systems use sensors to monitor the availability of parking spaces and guide drivers to the nearest available space.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations: The demand for EV charging stations is increasing as more people switch to electric vehicles. Parking operators are installing EV charging stations to attract and retain customers, and in some cases, are partnering with EV charging companies to offer charging services.

Sustainability: There is a growing focus on sustainability in parking operations, with an emphasis on reducing energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting alternative transportation options such as public transit, biking, and walking.

Data Analytics: Parking operators are using data analytics to improve the efficiency of their operations, including optimizing pricing, reducing wait times, and predicting parking demand. These analytics can also help parking operators to make informed decisions about facility maintenance, staffing, and expansion.

Overall, the world of parking operations is constantly evolving with new technologies and trends, and these are just a few examples of what is happening in the industry.
