TripShot Launches FlexRide, a New Transportation Solution for Campuses and Communities

 

 

FlexRide efficiently pools riders and ensures everyone arrives at their defined destination on time

 

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. April 2, 2024 – TripShot, an industry-leading transportation management solution for companies, universities and hospitals, has announced its latest feature, FlexRide.

TripShot’s FlexRide is an innovative new transit SaaS solution that automatically creates dynamic routes by factoring in user-requested pickup/drop-off locations and predetermined stops and times. For example, riders can submit a next-day pick-up request at their home, be dropped off at a pre-determined stop and arrive on time for their daily commitments. TripShot aggregates all similar requests, creates a dynamic route and notifies riders of their scheduled pickup time. The reverse can happen for commutes home.

FlexRide supports higher vehicle utilization and lower deadhead times for vehicle fleets. By pooling riders along a dynamic route, operators enjoy more efficient vehicle assignments and optimized scheduling. Adding FlexRide to TripShot can significantly improve rider convenience, allowing them to customize their transportation services to meet their unique needs. Since operations began in the Fall of 2023, an early-adopting customer’s average weekly growth rate for completed trips has been 17%. 93% of these trips received a 5-star rating from riders.

“FlexRide is a win-win for administrators, drivers and riders. It’s a revolutionary transit innovation seamlessly tailored to cater to today’s diverse commuters and passengers. Early adopters of FlexRide have found it operationally scalable and responsive while enhancing the rider experience, attracting new riders and ultimately helping employees to arrive ready for a productive day.” said Patrick Le, Co-Founder and General Manager at TripShot.

This new feature results from the company’s strong emphasis on innovation and focus on changing client needs. Initially built for corporate campuses of some of the world’s largest technology companies, TripShot now offers FlexRide as another mode of transportation for future-oriented corporations, universities, medical facilities, and other campuses.

“FlexRide is a paradigm-shifting transit innovation simultaneously prioritizing operational efficiency and rider convenience, ushering in a new era of forward-looking transit options,” added Rob Antoniak, Chief Customer Officer. “This game-changing innovation is a testament to our grit and determination to fulfill our mission to simply and efficiently solve transportation’s most pressing problems while redefining mobility for all.”

Zevtron and Chauntry Partner to Offer Groundbreaking EV Reservations Platform for Airports

Zevtron and Chauntry Partner to Offer Groundbreaking

EV Reservations Platform for Airports

 

 

 

Carlsbad, CA (April 2, 2024)—Zevtron, the innovative smart EV charging software and hardware solutions provider, and Chauntry, the parking reservations leader, today announced a partnership to enhance airport EV charging services. This innovative solution leverages Zevtron’s industry-leading smart EV charging software within the existing Chauntry Parkspace reservation system, enabling EV drivers to effortlessly reserve charging stations before their flights. Unlike other EV charging reservations platforms, Parkspace utilizes Zevtron’s industry-leading smart EV charging software, which allows airports to monetize EV charging, keeping all the revenue generating by charging infrastructure.

“This is an important breakthrough for airports,” said Bob Andrews, founder of Zevtron. “Now airports can retain total control over the EV assets for which they are offering prebooking. It’s no longer necessary for airports to cede control over EV charging to closed technology providers if they want to offer EV reservations. Not only will this improve airport EV services, but it will also open up new revenue streams.”

Airports can add EV charging to their existing Chauntry Parkspace portals or, if they don’t yet offer parking prebooking, they can partner with Chauntry to launch Parkspace with EV charging.

“As airports have rebounded from the pandemic, parking prebooking has become essential for improving the travel experience,” said Theresa Hughes, managing director of Chauntry. “Now, the same limited inventory challenges that make parking prebooking necessary are presented by EV charging. If you’re driving an EV to catch a flight, the last thing you need is to arrive at the airport, only to find that there are no EV chargers available. Now, airports can remove travelers’ uncertainty over whether they’ll be able to charge their EV, and the anxiety that uncertainty can cause.”

Reserving EV charging with Parkspace is simple. When flyers log into the airport’s parking portal to reserve a parking space, there will be an option to reserve charger space as well. It’s simply a matter of clicking the EV button. Then, when they arrive at the airport parking facility, they merely drive to their EV charging station, scan the code provided by the prebooking platform, and begin charging. When they return from their trip, their account will automatically be debited for both charging and the parking session. For flyers who are taking longer trips, the platform can be integrated with valet services, and the vehicle can be moved to a regular parking area when it’s fully charged.

Charging is powered by Zevtron’s industry-leading smart charging software. The software provides airports complete control over their charging stations and allowing them to collect and keep all the revues generated by EV charging.

Genetec Cloud Link Roadrunner™ – A NEMA TS2-rated IoT device that connects to the Genetec Synergis ACS to provide real-time monitoring of events and alarms, contractor management, and comprehensive reporting.

 

Genetec will also demonstrate the integration of technology from ASSA ABLOY, including ASSA ABLOY’s NEMA TS2-rated powered traffic cabinet locks that replace today’s standard vulnerable locks and keys, enabling operators to remotely manage enclosures and deliver real-time capabilities.

ParkHub and JustPark Agree to Merge Alongside Strategic Growth Investment from FTV Capital and LLR Partners

March 21, 2024

 

 

ParkHub and JustPark Agree to Merge Alongside Strategic Growth Investment from FTV Capital and LLR Partners

 

 

 

  • Leading US parking solutions provider, ParkHub, and one of the UK’s leading app-based parking platforms, JustPark, agree to merge.
  • Together, ParkHub and JustPark currently serve more than 20 million drivers and over 500 B2B customers, representing $1 billion+ in booking volume.
  • Combination of leading parking technology and payments providers creates robust end-to-end platform to serve entire parking ecosystem in North America and the United Kingdom.
  • This growth acquisition is backed by FTV Capital and existing investor, LLR Partners.

DALLAS and LONDON – March 21, 2024 – ParkHub, a leading North American provider of parking management software and payments solutions, today announced an agreement to combine businesses with JustPark, one of the UK’s leading app-based parking reservations technology and payments platforms. The combination creates a full-service parking software and payments solution for customers across North America and the United Kingdom. As part of this transaction, ParkHub secured a strategic growth investment led by FTV Capital with participation from existing investor LLR Partners.

“After 18 years at the forefront of transforming parking experiences for millions, our merger with ParkHub catapults JustPark to new heights,” said Anthony Eskinazi, founder and CEO of JustPark. “Our dedication to improving the parking experience for drivers continues, and with our cutting-edge technology and unrivalled support, we’re set to revolutionize parking for our customers and partners both here in the UK, and now also in North America.”

ParkHub provides a complete parking technology ecosystem to optimize revenue-driven parking operations, including facilitating payments and delivering real-time business insights for parking operators and venue management companies across North America, serving some of the largest sports and entertainment venues, universities, municipalities and commercial asset holders. JustPark will continue to leverage its technology to facilitate an online marketplace in the UK by matching drivers with available parking spaces and monetizing unused parking capacity. Together, ParkHub and JustPark currently serve more than 20 million drivers and more than 500 B2B customers, representing $1 billion+ in booking volume. JustPark’s Eskinazi will continue to lead the UK business.

“We are excited to invest in JustPark’s vision to provide the world’s best parking experiences and look forward to leveraging the combined company’s capabilities for our marquee customers across North America and the UK,” said Jeff Shanahan, CEO at ParkHub. “Having successfully worked with FTV in the past, I’m confident that their track record and extensive expertise within the vertical software and payments space make them the ultimate value-add partner to complement LLR as we chart this next phase of growth.”

The accelerating transition from cash to digital payments and growing adoption of prepaid parking has precipitated a need for an end-to-end platform that helps high-velocity parking facilities more efficiently manage their parking operations. Adding to this momentum, primary ticketing vendors are increasingly relying on partnerships with prepaid parking providers for on- and off-venue parking to help improve ingress and effectively manage parking reservations. With this acquisition, we believe that ParkHub is well positioned to capitalize on these industry tailwinds by leveraging JustPark’s parking reservations and mobile payments capabilities.

“Both ParkHub and JustPark stand out as category-leading vertical SaaS and payments platforms in their respective markets, and we’re excited to help these two complementary, yet distinct, offerings come together and accelerate growth in the expansive parking software and payments market,” said Kyle Griswold, partner at FTV Capital. “We’re also thrilled for the opportunity to once again partner with both Jeff and LLR. Jeff has been a leader at several successful FTV portfolio companies and has extensive experience growing and scaling vertical software and payments companies.”

“We are thrilled to announce our combination with JustPark, and to partner with Anthony and the entire JustPark team. Together, we will continue to provide our customers and partners with industry leading parking software and payment solutions,” said Ryan Goldenberg, partner at LLR Partners. “In addition, we welcome FTV Capital to ParkHub’s board of directors and look forward to a successful strategic partnership.”

As part of this growth investment, Kyle Griswold and Adam Hallquist, principal at FTV Capital, joined ParkHub’s board of directors.

PayByCar Launches Off-Street Parking Pilot in Four States across the United States

 

 

Company seeking next financing round to continue expansion

 

Boston, MA. PayByCar, Inc., the mobile payments company responsible for providing pay-by-text payments for in-vehicle fueling payments, along with the help of “Driven by E-ZPass™”, continues expansion into the off-street parking industry where the technology will be tested in at least four states in the United States throughout 2024. 

 

“PayByCar enables millions of drivers with an E-ZPass transponder to effortlessly park and pay without the need for cumbersome cash transactions, scanning QR codes, inserting tickets, or paying with phone apps, which not only optimizes convenience and efficiency but also addresses the increasing demand for more efficient contactless payment solutions,” said Anand Raman, President and Chief Operating Officer of PayByCar.

 

The company is currently testing its payments management platform for drivers in several major markets in the Eastern United States rolling out pilot projects at commercial parking locations and transportation centers. The company is looking to reshape the parking experience for garage owners, operators, and customers with continued investor partnerships. 

Following PayByCar’s innovative implementation of mobile payments technology responsible for providing pay-by-text payments at gas stations across Massachusetts, the company has made waves in the fintech and fueling industry following successful partnerships with organizations like the 19-state E-ZPass Group, Alltown Mobil, and others. 

“The upcoming financing round will support PayByCar’s rapid expansion throughout the East Coast this next 12 months to hundreds of additional fueling stations and parking facilities, and to accelerate our growth in consumer membership to upwards of a million people,” Raman said. 

By simplifying the on-arrival ticketing & subsequent payment experience, PayByCar can dramatically improve traffic flow during peak times, improving customer satisfaction by eliminating logjams that often occur when multiple vehicles leave a parking garage simultaneously. Over time PayByCar expects the impact on through-put in event parking to be every bit as dramatic as electronic tolling has been in eliminating long toll lines on highways.

 

With the trend towards frictionless, contactless payments, the company’s payment orchestration platform has the potential to simplify the overall parking experience for drivers while increasing authorizations and minimizing lost revenue for parking operators.

 

PayByCar is currently available for use in select gas stations throughout Massachusetts where it has proven its technology streamlines the overall gas purchase experience. The technology offers users a secure and convenient pay-by-text mobile payment method for gas purchases.

Ethernet powered field devices and controllers minimize installation complexity and significantly lower the total cost of ownership of the system. Advanced search functionality for license plates, vehicles and companies enables COS to rapidly identify active and inactive vehicles. The automated alerting capabilities for unauthorized vehicle entry and overall system’s health enhance the security and operational efficiency of the airport.

The deployment of TMNA’s CT-45 LPR camera and TrackFlow GTMS software represents a leap forward for Colorado Springs Airport.
