Why and How Owners Should Issue Regular RFPs for Parking Operations Services


While a parking management/owner may be tempted to resign an agreement with their parking operator, it may be in their best interest to “check back in” with the marketplace to reassess issues such as financial results, service, facility performance, image, and safety.

Using a third-party parking consultant to help steward the RFP process, may be of benefit to the owner as well.
