North Carolina Central University Expands ParkMobile Partnership to Offer Parking Reservations for Football Games

 

 

Fans attending North Carolina Central University football games this fall can conveniently reserve parking prior to the game using any mobile device.

 

 

 

 

Durham, N.C. – October 25, 2021– ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., is now offering contactless parking reservations for North Carolina Central University football games. In advance of games this football season, students, faculty, and visitors will be able to reserve parking via ParkMobile in Latham Parking Deck, a dedicated, off-street garage with 700 spaces. NCCU has been using ParkMobile on campus since September 2020, so the integration of reservations should be a seamless transition for Durham and the university community. The university will also offer reservations for basketball season.

ParkMobile has over 28 million users, is available for both iPhone and Android. Reserving a parking space is quick and easy. A user can go to https://app.parkmobile.io/venue/o-kelly-riddick-stadium/events to view a full list of upcoming football games with all the available parking options. To make a parking reservation, a user searches for the event venue in the ParkMobile app or website and selects the location they’d like to park in. After the user books the reservation, it can be redeemed at the location using a mobile pass in the ParkMobile app or a printed permit. Parking reservations are currently available for the remaining home football schedule including the next home game of NCCU vs South Carolina State on Oct. 30.

ParkMobile’s partnership with NCCU expands the company’s presence in North Carolina where there are currently more than 574,000 users. The app is also available in Chapel Hill, Charlotte, and Raleigh, at The University of North Carolina, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and NC State University.

“ParkMobile has been a great, contactless tool for our students, faculty and staff, so adding reservations for gamedays further expanded our ability to service campus visitors,” says Ayana Hernandez, Associate Vice Chancellor for the Office of Marketing and Communications at North Carolina Central University. “We anticipate that the reservation feature will reduce traffic and ensure NCCU offers our guests a more seamless experience on game day.”

“We are already utilizing our reservations feature for gamedays across North Carolina, so we are excited to add NCCU to the team” adds Jeff Perkins, CEO for ParkMobile. “We love seeing already active campuses expand their ParkMobile offerings.”

Talk Green with Brian and ParkNews.biz Oct 19th– 25th, 2021

 

 

Parking Today goes Green: We are excited about our January 2022 Parking Today Issue.  It is the Green Issue.  And yes, the focus is environment and making parking experience better for the customer through it and with it.  Be it via reserving parking spaces ahead via various apps while attending a sporting event or a play.  Or via getting the ev car and having myriad charging options.  Or lighting systems or wayfinding.  Anything and everything that makes our parking and mobility easier with respect for our planet.

Just this Monday, a sign of electrification going full steam ahead.  Hertz “ barely four months out of bankruptcy, placed an order for 100,000 Teslas in the first step of an ambitious plan to electrify its rental-car fleet.”  Further: “It’s the single-largest purchase ever for electric vehicles, or EVs, and represents about $4.2 billion of revenue for Tesla, according to people familiar with the matter who declined to be identified because the information is private. While car-rental companies typically demand big discounts from automakers, the size of the order implies that Hertz is paying close to list prices.

“How do we democratize access to electric vehicles? That’s a very important part of our strategy,” Mark Fields, who joined Hertz as interim chief executive officer earlier this month, said in an interview. “Tesla is the only manufacturer that can produce EVs at scale.”

SWAPALEASE.COM IDENTIFIES TREND WHERE DEALERS ARE BUYING OUT MORE EXISTING LEASED VEHICLES TO ALLEVIATE INVENTORY SHORTAGES

October 20, 2021

SWAPALEASE.COM IDENTIFIES TREND WHERE DEALERS ARE BUYING OUT MORE EXISTING LEASED VEHICLES TO ALLEVIATE INVENTORY SHORTAGES

New Trend Helps Brands Like Honda and Nissan See the Value of Modernizing Their Lease Policies

CINCINNATI, OHIO (October 20, 2021) – Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, released today new data that uncovers a growing trend in auto leases that is directly tied in with the ongoing microchip shortages and new-vehicle dealership inventory challenges.

Over the past 12 months Swapalease.com is seeing a nearly 500% increase in the number of leases getting bought out in its nationwide online marketplace. These leased vehicles are listed typically between 15 and 20 months old, and in many cases have less than 25,000 miles making them an extremely attractive source of used vehicle options on the dealer lot.

Customers greatly benefit on both end of the spectrum: 1) buyers at dealers have access to more used vehicle inventory and more selection to choose from; and 2) people listing vehicles on the Swapalease.com marketplace from brands with unfavorable and outdated lease policies are having more success escaping their lease contracts.

Brands such as Honda, Nissan, and Kia have traditionally made it extremely difficult for their lease customers to transfer leases for a variety of life reasons that have nothing to do with vehicle or brand preference. In many cases people want to remain with the same brand for their next vehicle, but the frustrations associated with transfer obstacles force people to eventually choose a different brand in their next car or truck. The current dealer lease buyout climate is offering these brands a glimpse at how modifying their policies might benefit them going forward.

“Many people simply want or need to change vehicles because they are having a new baby or are moving to a different part of the country and their existing car or truck no longer works for them,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. “They are happy with the brand they are with, but the difficult experience drives them into another brand. Hopefully, the current situation helps these brands see the value in modifying and modernizing their lease policies especially once the market normalizes.”

About Swapalease.com:

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, Swapalease.com is the world’s largest automotive lease marketplace and the pioneer in facilitating lease transfers online. More specifically Swapalease.com matches individuals who want to get out of their lease with people who are looking for short-term lease agreements. Prospective buyers can search the listings for the exact vehicle they want, and then register for a nominal fee, allowing them to use Swapalease.com’s safe online system to contact the prospective seller and close the deal. For more information about Swapalease.com or how to exit your lease early, call 866-SWAPNOW or visit www.swapalease.com.

PARKMOBILE EXPANDS ITS PRESENCE TO PUERTO RICO AND LAUNCHES AT DISTRITO T-MOBILE OFFERING CONTACTLESS PARKING SYSTEMS

 

 

 

Visitors to the innovative entertainment center will be able to use the mobile app to pay for parking

 

 

 

San Juan, PR – October 20, 2021– ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, announced today its expansion to Puerto Rico through a partnership with DISTRITO T-Mobile, Puerto Rico’s premier entertainment venue. Visitors are now able to pay for parking on their mobile devices in close to 3,000 spaces within three off-street gated facilities on the property. The integration of ParkMobile’s contactless payment system will help eliminate long lines at the pay stations in the parking locations by simplifying the exit process. Later this year, ParkMobile plans to add parking reservations to DISTRITO T-Mobile for concerts, dining, convention center attendees, and on-site events.

 

The ParkMobile app is the #1 parking app in North America with 28M users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. Now, Puerto Rico residents and visitors can experience the convenience that’s widely available in 450 cities across the United States.

 

Through ParkMobile, users can easily pay for parking through their phones and exit the location without having to touch the pay station or wait in long lines. To pay for hourly parking, a user enters the facility and pulls a ticket from the machine. Once parked, a user enters zone #10101, shown on nearby signage, into the ParkMobile app and scans the QR code from the ticket in the app. To exit, users will insert the ticket into the machine, prompting the app to process payment and the gate to lift.

 

“The integration of ParkMobile will make visiting DISTRITO T-Mobile an even better experience for our guests,” said Gabriel de Cárdenas, General Manager of DISTRITO T-Mobile. “By partnering with them, we are streamlining the parking process and reducing the traffic congestion often faced when exiting the onsite parking garages.”

 

“We are excited to welcome DISTRITO T-Mobile to the ParkMobile network,” says Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “This is our first venture into Puerto Rico and an important market for us. We’re thrilled to continue introducing ParkMobile to countries outside of the U.S. and Canada.”

California State DMV Purchases Fifteen Beam Global EV ARC™ Off-Grid EV Charging Systems

California State DMV Purchases Fifteen Beam Global EV ARC™ Off-Grid EV Charging Systems

 

 

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 19, 2021 — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable technology for electric vehicle (EV) charging, outdoor media and energy security, announced today the California State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has purchased fifteen EV ARC™ solar-powered EV charging systems for public use. The systems were purchased through the California Department of General Services (DGS) Contract #1-18-61-16, which serves to simplify the government procurement process and make chosen solutions available statewide at the best negotiated pricing.

“Contracts like the California DGS contract and the federal GSA contract make EV ARC systems as easy to procure as they are to deploy for government entities across the nation,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Because of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s desire to deploy 1.2 million EV chargers by 2030, we’re seeing more multi-unit orders from government entities, which is promising for the future.”

The California DMV’s fifteen units will offer free public charging at locations across the state for DMV visitors to charge their EVs while they conduct business at the DMV. Each solar-powered EV ARC™ system generates and stores its own clean electricity and delivers that electricity to power two Enel X JuiceBox® Pro EV charging stations. The transportable but permanent systems include the Emergency Power Panel option for first responder use during blackouts and emergencies.

Requiring no connection to the utility grid, Beam Global products eliminate disruptive construction projects, costly electric circuit upgrades and utility charges to deliver significant long-term savings to state agency budgets.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new climate bill on September 23 that included $4 billion in funding for EV charging infrastructure. The California DGS contract is the result of a thorough evaluation of Beam Global’s capabilities, which identified performance-driven sustainable solutions and a strong history of customer satisfaction.

For more information on purchasing Beam’s EV ARC™ ready-to-deploy sustainable EV charging solutions through the DGS Contract, please contact The Beam Team at 858-799-4583 or BeamTeam@BeamForAll.com.
