Kansas City International Airport’s Superior Customer Experience Journey Begins and Ends in the Parking Garage

 

 

Cheshire, CT – September 28, 2022 – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) has begun installing the previously awarded Automated Parking Guidance System (APGS) contract through JE Dunn Construction in conjunction with the Kansas City Aviation Department(KCAD) in Kansas City, MO. Landing in spring 2023, the Kansas City Aviation Department will open a new single terminal representing a total transformation of Kansas City’s air passenger experience. Part of this project will be a 6,219-space parking garage with a location adjacent to the terminal, plus dedicated curb spaces for taxis and ride sharing platforms and shuttles, all planned to maintain Kansas City International’s convenient experience as travelers arrive and depart.

“We’re excited to add this technology to our parking garage for the new terminal.  Our customers will feel the biggest positive impact. Year to date, our passenger count is up 35 percent, and for most of them, the parking garage is the first and last touchpoint. We wanted to extend our superior customer experience to this area,” said Manager of Parking Services Katy Sell. “The APGS also will allow us to maximize utilization of our parking facilities. The constant stream of data analytics will assist with parking garage operation efficiency.”

With TKH Security’s new smart-sensor M5 camera-based APGS, customers will have the means to efficiently find an available parking space. Each smart-sensor can monitor up to six parking spaces simultaneously. The bright, red and green color-coded LED light on the smart-sensors instantly visually direct motorists to available spaces.  Reducing time to park by up to 63%, the APGS will help travelers arrive to their gate quickly.

 “I am very excited to have our company selected for this project.  The Kansas City Aviation Department developed a new terminal that meets the public’s expectations of superior customer experience, ease of finding open parking spaces, while reducing the carbon footprint of both the airport and vehicles,” said Regional Account Manager Jeff Sparrow. “This custom package of smart-sensor products Kansas City Airport chose is another example of how they put travelers first.”

Kansas City International Airport’s APGS package also includes:

  • VMS NAV signs, which will be placed at key decision points for drivers to assist with wayfinding,
  • S2, which allows parking management to monitor surface lots,
  • Park Alerts, which notify operators when certain vehicles enter the building including VIP passengers,
  • Park Finder, which helps drivers find their vehicle in seconds,
  • And an API package that provides the Aviation Department with a secure connection to a limitless set of third-party parking related solutions.

On the Kansas City International Airport project, TKH Security is proud to also partner with JE Dunn, Structure Inc., TIBA, Max Electric, and American Legacy.

Gomez also expanded the program reach and success of the company’s charitable efforts through its Kids Around The Corner Foundation over the last two years to various new organizations, associations and affiliations in local communities.

Blink Charging and Veris Residential to Offer Haus25 Residents in New Jersey Access to State-of-the-Art EV Charging Stations

September 12, 2022

Blink Charging and Veris Residential to Offer Haus25 Residents in New Jersey Access to State-of-the-Art EV Charging Stations

 

Sustainability-Focused Luxury Apartment Building will be Equipped with 24 EV Charging Ports

 

 

Miami Beach, Fla. & Jersey City, N.J., Sept. 12, 2022  — Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, and Veris Residential, Inc., a forward-thinking, environmentally and socially conscious REIT that primarily owns, operates, acquires, and develops Class A multifamily properties, today announced the deployment of 24 of Blink’s EV charging ports at Veris Residential’s newly-built, sustainability-focused, luxury apartment high-rise Haus25, located at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City, NJ.

“Most EV drivers want to be able to charge their EV’s where they live and Veris Residential is helping them do just that,” said Brendan Jones, president at Blink Charging. “We are honored to work with Veris Residential to provide a valuable service to their residents and look forward to our continued relationship with them to bring more EV charging stations to other Veris Residential sites.”

As the only complete, end-to-end global EV charging provider, delivering advanced technology solutions for all EV customers—including consumers, fleets, businesses, retailers, developers, and municipalities—Blink’s unique owner-operator model provides customers and partners with industry-leading charging stations for every location and a 360-degree solution that they can rely on in a rapidly evolving market. By partnering with Blink to provide Haus25 residents with access to EV charging ports, Veris Residential is supporting its mission of being a responsible, sustainable, inclusive, and equitable member of the built environment.

“Veris Residential is thrilled to cooperate with Blink, an innovative provider of fast and effective EV charging solutions, as we continue to redefine environmentally-friendly living,” said Karen Cusmano, Senior Vice President, Head of Sustainability and ESG at Veris Residential. “As the first U.S. real estate company to sign the Climate Group’s EV100 initiative and commit to installing EV charging across our portfolio by 2030, partnering with Blink to bring these stations to Haus25 takes us one step closer to achieving our goal of increasing EV charging capacity for our residents.”

While studies have shown that up to 85% of EV charging happens at home, to date, a limited number of apartments and condominiums have offered such access to their residents. In light of the potential of providing EV charging to the estimated 80 million Americans currently living in multiunit buildings, Blink is seeking to meet a need desired by EV drivers while helping to move the U.S. forward in its decarbonization goals. Specifically, by offering the most flexibility in the industry, Blink’s personalized and strategic business models allow customers to achieve their goals, whether that means owning, partnering with, or hosting their charging infrastructure.

To this end, Blink has installed 12 IQ 200 dual chargers at Haus25, providing 24 charging ports for residents and visitors of the complex. Blink IQ 200, the fastest Level 2 AC charging station available, produces 80 amps of output that provide approximately 65 miles of charge per hour and is compatible with any battery-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. When fully implemented at Haus25, the building will deliver yet another best-in-class amenity that meets the environmentally conscious lifestyle preferences for today’s residents, as well as standards required to achieve LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

PayByPhone Announces New Partnership with TransLink Park and Ride Lots Across Metro Vancouver

PayByPhone Announces New Partnership with TransLink Park and Ride Lots Across Metro Vancouver

 

PayByPhone has partnered with TransLink to offer its mobile parking payment app at 5,500 parking spaces across all nine TransLink Park and Ride lots.

 

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA  — Vancouver, British Columbia, September 8, 2022 – Commuters in the Metro Vancouver area using the designated lots along the TransLink line servicing buses, the SkyTrain, and the West Coast Express can now pay for their parked vehicles with the universally acclaimed PayByPhone app.

PayByPhone makes the transition to cashless parking payment easy. The app is simple to use, and parking payment transactions can be completed in three quick steps using the following methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay, or Google Pay.

 

Further, drivers can opt to have text messages sent to their mobile phone reminding them of parking expiration. Drivers who prefer not to register for an account can begin a parking session by calling in to pay over the phone or pay with a Guest Account via PayByPhone’s app or website.

 

“We’re thrilled to be partnering exclusively with TransLink to offer our services here in Vancouver, BC, the home of PayByPhone,” says Carmen Donnell, PayByPhone’s Managing Director, North America. “As more people seek out public transit to commute, the convenience of leaving their vehicles parked in designated Park and Ride lots, with the ability to pay for parking time remotely, encourages transit commuting. PayByPhone has proven its popularity in Vancouver and internationally as a versatile and reputable mobile payment app, designed to simplify the parking journey by removing pain-points typically associated with finding and paying for parking,” concludes Donnell.

“We’re always looking for innovative ways to improve the customer experience and make using transit easier,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Quinn. “We’re pleased to be able to partner with Vancouver-based PayByPhone to provide our customers with more convenient and accessible payment options at our Park and Ride locations.”
