During the last few months, several of IPMI’s volunteer committee members have been working to assemble information about the industry’s response to COVID-19 and the overall path for recovery for parking and mobility organizations. Several pieces of information have been shared and can be found in IPMI’s Roadmap to Recovery publication. There is still much work left to accomplish and we need your help!

If you are in municipal, academic, airport, campus, or private parking operations, we would love to hear from you about the types of challenges you are facing, the impacts to your organization, and any unique opportunities you are leveraging to help serve the community around you. You can help in either (or both) of two ways:

  1. IPMI currently has a survey open that is collecting information to benchmark and share information about the industry’s response to COVID-19. The survey will be open through July 29 and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. You can find the survey here.
  2. In the next few weeks, IPMI and the volunteer committee members will begin to request information about specific case studies related to industry responses through the IPMI Forum. For example, if you’ve implemented curbside access changes to support businesses, we want to hear how, why, and the outcomes.

This information will be used to help our members better understand the opportunities and challenges they could face as we continue the path to recovery. Please feel free to reach out to me at or Rachel Yoka at if you would like to share any additional information to help this critical project.
