Propark to Open New Airport and Cruise Parking Operation in Fort Lauderdale
Hartford, Connecticut – Propark America announced today that it is opening its latest near-airport parking location, servicing Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, in Florida.
“As our flagship location in Fort Lauderdale, this new account is going to be a showcase for our Southeastern United States portfolio,” said Propark America’s Regional Vice President, David Horn. “By bringing our signature high-end service model and technology offerings to this asset, we will truly redefine the parking experience for the traveling public.”
With 400 spaces of premium parking, the new location, Discount Parking FLL, is expected to alleviate some of the parking challenges at, and around, the airport, which sees 36 million passengers annually. With only 12,000 on-airport parking spaces and just 4,800 off-airport stalls, this new inventory will help to support the large passenger volume. Discount Parking FLL will also service the nearby Port Everglades Cruise Port, which caters to nearly another 4 million passengers annually. As the fourth busiest cruise port in the world, additional parking capacity is a welcome addition. Cruise patrons will receive the same valet parking convenience that Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport travelers will experience at Discount Parking FLL.
“Whether people are flying out, or setting sail, we will provide them with exceptional service and value that we think resonates with everyone,” continued Horn. “We understand that in these parking environments, people are typically gone for several days at a time, if not a week or more. It’s important to provide these guests with the right balance of affordable rates and top-notch service.”
Discount Parking FLL will provide air travelers and cruise patrons with premium valet parking service, shuttle transportation twenty-four hours per day and guaranteed online reservations on their website. As part of the grand opening, people will be able to go to www.DiscountParkingFLL.com to reserve their parking at only $4.95 per day. Guests will also be able to earn free parking perks through a frequent parker loyalty rewards program, which they will be able to manage online and on a mobile app.

Fort Lauderdale transforms curbside management with mobility management platform
City partners with Passport to manage its entire mobility operation in one centralized system
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Feb. 13, 2019) — Today, the City of Fort Lauderdale announced a partnership to implement Passport’s mobility platform, an innovative system designed to transform municipal mobility management. With the announcement, Fort Lauderdale becomes the first city in the United States to procure and select a partner to implement this cutting-edge solution to manage its entire parking operation.
Fort Lauderdale’s Transportation and Mobility Department selected Passport, the leading mobility platform, to power its parking ecosystem. Passport’s technology will enable Fort Lauderdale to bridge data from previously unconnected systems to make smarter, more strategic decisions about transportation, with the ultimate goal of creating a better experience for residents and visitors. The platform is capable of connecting enforcement technology, digital permits, and processing payments to allow for real-time reporting and rate setting. Passport’s integration also has the potential to implement tools, including dynamic pricing and predictive availability, to maximize operations and make Fort Lauderdale a more vibrant, livable city with improved parking and mobility.
“Linking our entire mobility system under a single umbrella provides us with a unique opportunity to scale our operations, welcome new modes of transport, and make data-driven decisions to improve traffic flow, enhance accessibility, and bring us closer to realizing our vision of becoming a fully-connected, multi-modal city of the future,” said Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean J. Trantalis.
“Through our partnership with Passport, we are providing a roadmap and establishing an example of smart mobility management for other forward-thinking cities to follow.”
In addition to connecting Passport-powered products, such as its digital permit and parking enforcement systems, the platform is also able to plug in other parking and mobility providers, which will allow the city to streamline management and process payments in an increasinglycomplex environment. Passport has processed nearly $1 billion in transportation-related payments to date.
The Passport platform will give Fort Lauderdale unprecedented access to data and will centralize all forms of mobility in one place. With Passport, the city will be able to:
- Assess real-time parkingdemand
- Expand the availability of digital payments throughout the mobilityecosystem
- Enable predictive availability capabilities for parkingfacilities
- Optimize parking inventory through dynamicpricing
- Enforce mobility rules, rates and regulations through a real-time compliance platform
- Enable management of emerging modes of transportation through a central platform
“Through our experience working with hundreds of cities worldwide, we’ve seen the challenges they face with siloed operations, legacy technology, and purchasing cycles that lag the industry’s pace of innovation,” said David Singletary, vice president at Passport. “Fort Lauderdale is breaking down walls and implementing a more integrated, connected, and future-proof system that will improve efficiencies now while being adaptable for whatever comes next.”
Passport is transforming mobility management for cities, empowering them to create more livable and equitable communities. Passport’s mobility platform enables clients to digitally coordinate all modes of transportation and implement real-time, data-centric management of their curbside and streetspace through its enterprise software. Trusted by nearly 600 cities, universities and agencies, including Chicago, Toronto, London, Los Angeles, and Miami, Passport is one of the fastest growing companies on the Inc. 500 and Deloitte Technology Fast 500 lists.
