Member News: Salt Lake City International Airport chooses Park Assist
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – April 28th, 2020 – Park Assist® has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Salt Lake City International Airport’s latest parking garage. Salt Lake City is building a new International Airport (SLC) to replace the existing structure. Serving more than 26 million passengers a year, SLC also chose to include a 3,600-space parking garage in the new development. This parking facility, equipped with Park Assist’s camera based M4 PGS, is designed to meet Salt Lake City’s current and future needs with the flexibility to adapt with the ever-changing aviation industry.
As part of SLC’s effort to improve its passengers’ travel experience, Park Assist’s proprietary M4 PGS will serve to decrease parking search times and traffic in the garage and increase customer satisfaction. Along with the M4 technology, SLC’s parking guidance solution will also include two of Park Assist’s advanced software add-ons: Park FinderTM and Park AlertsTM.
The camera based M4 smart sensor system uses color-coded LED lights to guide drivers to vacant spaces; triggered to turn from red to green when spaces become available, these lights remove all confusion from the parking journey. Upon returning to the garage, these travelers will have an equally effortless experience finding their car by utilizing Park Assist’s Find Your Car software add-on. This advanced vehicle locator feature uses license plate recognition (LPR) technology to pinpoint each customer’s car. By simply entering all or part of their license plate number into the Park Assist system or mobile app, guests are directed to their vehicle’s exact location within the facility.
Additionally, Park Assist’s Park Alerts software extension allows the airport to gain valuable control and increase security in the garage. Using this add-on, parking management will be able to set and enforce automated rules and alerts. These alerts will immediately notify them of any policy violations so they can take the appropriate action, creating an efficient, safe, and secure facility.
“Park Assist is extremely excited to work with Salt Lake City International on this groundbreaking development. As the airport transforms for the future, Park Assist hopes to deliver an equally innovative parking experience. We are honored to be a part of SLC’s initiative and provide travelers with a state-of-the-art parking garage through our advanced technology,” said Jeff Sparrow, Regional Account Manager.
Site work is scheduled to begin this month and the installation is slated for completion for SLC’s grand opening in September 2020.
