WallyPark Teams Up with FLASH to Transform Airport Parking




The Challenge


WallyPark has been providing off-airport parking to travelers for over twenty years. When covid-19 threatened the way airlines had been running for decades, WallyPark knew that parking would have to change, too.


The Solution

To connect more than 100 lanes of equipment at 10 locations across the country on a single, cloud-based platform, WallyPark chose FLASH as a technology partner. From the touchless technology consumers wanted most at the height of the pandemic to the mobile management tools operators need to stay on top of day-to-day business.

FLASH provided a complete 21st century parking solution with:

When everything is changing so fast, FLASH putting innovation and tech at the forefront gives you peace of mind.

With the Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) pricing model, a program unique to FLASH, WallyPark was able to take what would typically be a capital expenditure and spread it across low monthly payments throughout the lifetime of the hardware. HaaS gives operations with an expansive national footprint the opportunity to invest in future-ready technology with an incremental investment.

The Result

On a completely automated system, WallyPark’s locations have seen a substantial reduction in cashier labor and growing revenues as accountability and collection capabilities increase. The move from paper tickets to an entirely digital system is more in tune with consumer expectations and allows WallyPark to take advantage of features like dynamic pricing.

Today, WallyPark can access real-time data insights across its nationwide portfolio and manage short term, monthly, and valet parking on a single platform. With its day-to-day operations optimized and automated, WallyPark is now turning its attention to future-ready technologies like AI and EV charging stations.

FLASH has worked tremendously for us, I think ongoing updates and HaaS are the way of the future.

WallyPark Declares April “Earth Month” to Plant Trees

WallyPark Declares April “Earth Month” to Plant Trees



To celebrate Earth Day and an ongoing commitment to sustainability, WallyPark Airport Parking ran a month-long campaign to help reduce their carbon footprint and green-up the earth. Turning Earth Day into “Earth Month”, the company offered to plant a tree for every parking reservation made in the month of April. The “More Trees, Yes Please!” campaign offered WallyPark’s premier airport parking to all 18 locations serving travelers at 11 U.S. airports, including Orlando airport parking. The campaign produced 20,746 reservations, which will fund reforestation efforts in Central America and Native American Reservations in the U.S. The reforestation will be conducted by Fort Collins, CO-based Trees, Water and People.

“We’ve made a serious commitment to moving toward omitting our carbon footprint via a combination of initiatives,” said Kevin Montgomery, Chief Operating Officer at WallyPark headquarters in Los Angeles. He added, “Our sustainability efforts include low/zero emission vehicles, completely waterless car and bus washing, and LED lighting retro fits in our facilities.” In March 2017, WallyPark Premier LAX location deployed 16 Zero Emissions Utility Shuttles (ZEUS) manufactured by Phoenix Motorcars LLC. The 14-passenger fully electric buses are being used to service off-airport parking at Los Angeles International Airport. This deployment makes WallyPark Premier the first all-electric airport parking operation in the nation. By June, more than 40 all-electric buses will be in use at WallyPark-owned LAX parking brands.

Each of the buses is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60 tons of carbon dioxide per year, compared to a conventional diesel shuttle. All buses have fast-charging capability, which allows full charging to take place in less than three hours.

Over the next five years, WallyPark will continue to roll out a fully sustainable bus fleet.
