We could not be any more proud to announce the opening of LAX Economy Parking at Los Angeles international airport, equipped with HUB smart parking technology.
LAX Economy Parking is the largest parking garage of the airport: a $294 million, 1.7-million-square-foot facility that has approximately 4,300 new parking stalls located a half mile from the LAX Central Terminal Area (CTA).
The amazing garage is the result of a scrupulous design and construction project that included Swinerton Builders, ABM Industries, and of course, HUB Parking Technology USA, with a cross-functional team composed of Joel Naicker, Sean Neasi, three software engineers and technical designers, and a team of eight installation and deployment engineers.
The HUB Team has worked closely with Park Assist in order to integrate their M4 smart sensors with our management system JMS, and ensure their data would be fed to the Parking Guidance System (PGS) and VMS panels that seamlessly guide drivers along the four floors of the facility.
How is the driver’s journey, then?
Smooth and streamlined! It includes pre-booked parking for discounted rates, ample electric vehicle charging (nearly 1,600 stalls), and automatic entry and exit. The introduction of smart parking technology gives travelers the ability to reserve a space in advance, via the Aeroparker pre-booking platform on flylax.com
Online pre-booking will also offer the greatest discount compared to the drive-up rate of $25 per day, with initial discounts up to 70% off pre-book rates with dynamic pricing that will be based on availability and the amount of time booked in advance. This strategic approach to the parking offer is fully enabled by JMS system, as it is based on real-time data.
Employee parking will be handled through HUB’s JPass digital solution and allows contract parkers to reserve and pay for their parking privileges via the app on their smartphone, eliminating the need to interact with parking staff.
LAX Economy Parking staff has been trained for JMS both remotely and with live classes by the HUB Solutions Engineering team, so as to ensure they master all of the system’s advanced capabilities: real-time monitoring and assistance, business intelligence, customized reporting, and dynamic charging above all.
The HUB USA team will also provide after-sales assistance and maintenance for a period of 7 years at the state-of-the-art new garage.
In the words of Beatrice Hsu, President, Board of Airport Commissioners: “This innovative facility is an integral addition to our airport parking, and will provide a convenient and affordable place to park, while elevating the guest experience at LAX.”
HUB Parking Technology is proud to be part of the project that is making LAX the world-class airport that the city of LA deserves. “As the third largest airport in the world, LAX is a global crossroads where dreams take flight and we welcome the future of our city with open arms,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “LAX Economy Parking is a historic marker of progress in the midst of a once-in-a-generation transformation at the airport — bringing travelers a state-of-art facility that will help reduce congestion, enable our airport to realize its full potential, and create a more seamless travel experience for millions of Angelenos and visitors.”
