 TIBA: Waterloo Regional Airport Parking Increases Profitability by 41%

TIBA: Waterloo Regional Airport Parking Increases Profitability by 41% 

 

 

Waterloo, IA (August 15, 2019) – TIBA Parking, in conjunction with Parking Inc., installed access and revenue control equipment at Waterloo Regional Airport, and after one year of operation, the airport has seen a net increase of 41% in revenue. 

 

TIBA Parking and Parking Inc. were awarded the contract to reconfigure the parking facility by replacing existing equipment including ticket dispensers and pay in lane devices, and activating TIBA’s world-class entry, exit, and access only lane equipment, along with an integrated LPR system on all lanes. 

The seamless LPR system, along with TIB@pay, resulted in an increased ease of use for customers, faster entry and exit, and a substantial decrease in operating costs. Waterloo Regional Airport was pleased with the increase in profitability and Sheila Combs, Regional Airport Administrator commented, “We’ll sure take the bump of 41%!” 

TIB@Pay, TIBA’s payment application for handling traditional bank card payments, also increased the speed of individual transaction times to an average of 3-5 seconds allowing a prompt and simple egress. 

“With the implementation of the TIBA solution, in conjunction with license plate recognition, users and operators have felt a new ease of use,” stated Craig Buscher, Sales Manager for Parking Inc. “LPR allowed for no lost tickets at egress and decreased cheating, or people not paying for various reasons. LPR also eliminated and greatly reduced lane downtime due to high reliability. Servicing fees to customer were also cut drastically compared to the old extinct system. We look forward to our continued partnership with Waterloo Regional Airport.” 

“The TIBA team celebrates the positive revenue growth experienced by the Waterloo Regional Airport. We look forward to the continued success of their facilities, and an even higher increase in their profitability,” said Jon Bowsher, President of TIBA North & South America. “Our solutions are efficient and simple to use for both the driver and operator, and the Waterloo Regional Airport is another great example of the success an effective solution can provide.”

Near Airport Parking Industry Trade Association Hosts Rep. Graves for Shuttle Ride-Along at MSY

Near Airport Parking Industry Trade Association Hosts Rep. Graves for Shuttle Ride-Along at MSY

 

House Transportation & Infrastructure Aviation Subcommittee Ranking Member Rides with Park N’ Fly to Louis Armstrong International, Learns about Curb Access Firsthand

 

KENNER, LA—Today, U.S. Representative Garret Graves (R-LA-6) joined the Near Airport Parking Industry Trade Association (NAPITA) for a Member Ride-Along aboard a Park ‘N Fly shuttle to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).

 

NAPITA, an association of national parking operators dedicated to providing dependable and affordable travel options that improve the customer experience at major American airports, welcomed Representative Graves at Park ‘N Fly New Orleans who, aboard the shuttle, heard firsthand about the issues facing NAPITA members as a growing number of stakeholders seek access to limited curb space at America’s airports.

 

“Open dialogue with the commercial ground transportation industry is critical for the efficient and safe operation of our airports” says Sarah Fisher, Chief Government Affairs Officer with The Parking Spot. “How you get to and from the airport curb is just as important in the overall air travel experience as what airline you can board and what items you can take in your bag, it’s just not getting the same amount of air time in the federal conversation. The Near Airport Parking Industry Trade Association believes now is the time for attention to be given to the curb. Infrastructure construction, customer demand and utilization, private investments, traffic congestion, future technological changes, environmental concerns—all of these things and more demand that we put together thoughtful policy on how to handle airport ground transportation.”

Ground transportation operators are vital partners to the aviation industry. You cannot get to an airport or on a plane without some form of ground transportation, and when choosing how to get to the airport, more than 2,000,000 Americans choose to park with a NAPITA member. However, airports control access to their curbs for all types of ground transportation, including taxis, limos, ride-share services, rental cars, etc.

 

The curb space at our nation’s airports is not only important for the safety and security of the airport, but it is also a scarce resource for an increasing number of travelers and the ground transportation industry and becomes more congested by the day. Just as delays on the tarmac harm economic productivity, issues at the curb lead to missed flights, lost time, and unhappy travelers.

 

Of these ground transportation operators, near-airport parking industry operators are the only ones that compliment and directly compete with the airport for ground transportation services.

 

In New Orleans, near-airport parking operators pay seven percent of gross revenue to drop their customers at the airport curb. Other ground transportation operators pay a flat fee per passenger pick up.

Park ‘N Fly Regional Director of Operations Marcy Zamora said, “Louis Armstrong International Airport does not have adequate parking for the number of travelers traveling through the airport, and Park ‘N Fly New Orleans provides an additional 1,200 parking spaces to bolster scarce airport resources. However, near-airport parking operators and other stakeholders have been left out of conversations about the new terminal despite being a critical partner to the airport. We, along with our partners at NAPITA, believe ground transportation plays a vital role in the broader air travel industry and the overall experience for air travelers and must become a part of planning conversations and policy discussions.”

 

NAPITA believes a federal stakeholder working group would provide the venue necessary to understand and address these and other issues, leveraging the expertise of our membership, the federal government, and airport operators to craft transportation policy that best serves the traveling public.

 

As the national organization for near-airport parking operators, NAPITA will continue to advocate for the industry and the vital role it plays within the broader air travel industry.

Auburn University joins the AIMS family of users

Auburn University joins the AIMS family of users

 

 

 

Auburn University recently implemented the AIMS Parking Management System to support their Parking Services department going into the Fall Semester.  Auburn uses AIMS to manage the online sales of their various permits and all other aspects of their permit management.  AIMS provides real-time integration with their 2 mobile LPR vehicles to support their virtual permits and eCitation enforcement. Auburn will soon be adding a third LPR vehicle and also equipping 2 parking structures with fixed LPR cameras.

 

 

From the University…

 

“Auburn University is very pleased with our transition to AIMS.  We were searching for a vendor that could provide us with a robust communications, reporting and financial system while also allowing us to continue our paperless enforcement and permitting.  AIMS not only delivered the system we were looking for, but they also provided us with exemplary customer support and service.  The support staff is very knowledgeable and responsive and always available via email or over the phone whenever we need them.”

 

“Our office staff was nervous about learning a new system, but that nervousness was quickly eased when they realized how easy-to-use and functional the system is.  We have convenient access to the information we need in order to better serve our faculty/staff and students.  AIMS provided us with a system that works consistently and effectively and that’s exactly what we were in search of.”

 Nortech: UPASS READER OFFERS COST-EFFECTIVE ACCESS CONTROL FOR PARKING APPLICATIONS

August 14, 2019

 

 

 

Nortech: UPASS READER OFFERS COST-EFFECTIVE

ACCESS CONTROL FOR PARKING APPLICATIONS

 

 

People and vehicle access control specialist Nortech offers a number of products within the Nedap productrange that use vehicle tagging to identify individual vehicles while they are moving through a monitoring point.

This includes the uPASS Reach reader, which offers long-range vehicle identification up to 5 metres using the latest UHF technology.

With consistent reading up to 5 metres and adjustable onsite reading as just two of the benefits of the system, the uPASS Reach has an elegant slim design, LED and audible read indication and is encased in weatherproof housing. It also operates with passive UHF tags, self-adhesive windscreen tags and hand-held tags with dual-technology options.

WhentheuPASS Reach reader is installed (maximum height two metres) next to an automatic gate or barrier,long-range passive UHF tags are identified at a distance of up to 5 metres as soon as they are visible in direct line of sight of the reader.

The reader output allows the access control system to open the gate/barrier when an authorised vehicle arrives without the need for the driver to present a card or badge, and the built-in high intensity LED provides the user visual feedback that the tag has been read. UHF tags are also both battery and maintenance-free.

To work alongside the uPASS Reach, Nedap has designed four different UHF tags to suit all environments. The UHF Windshield Tag is a passive UHF transponder and offers long range identification up to 5 metres when installed inside non metallised windscreens. This provides cost-effective long range vehicle identification for access control applications and is available as a standard peel off version or as a tamperproof version for additional security.

Where vehicle windscreens are fully metallised, Nedap offers a passive UHF Exterior Tag which can be easily fitted onto non-metallic / plastic parts of the vehicle such as the headlights. For added security, the UHF Exterior Tag is a tamper resistant, transparent, adhesive tag.  It will show visual proof of removal and is extremely difficult to remove, intact and functional. The chip inside is also protected against harmful UV rays.

The Nedap UHF Heavy Duty tag is a passive UHF transponder which again offers long-range identification up to 5 metres with the uPASS Reach. However, this tag features a rugged design for long term use in outdoor and industrial environments. The UHF Heavy Duty Tag is a cost-effective solution for installations where the tag needs to be mounted onto the exterior of the vehicle and can also be cable tied or bolted onto bicycles, forklifts and many other industrial devices.

Finally, the UHF ISO Combi Card is a card featured with long range UHF tag and proximity or smartcard technology. Used for both people and vehicle access, it enables the use of one card for both vehicle and building access applications. Available with a range of formats such as Mifare, Legic and HID.
