Propark America and Canopy Airport Parking Expand Partnership with E-470

E-470 Discount from Canopy Airport Parking near DIA

Propark America announced in a ribbon-cutting event Wednesday morning (March 25) that its Canopy Airport Parking facility, servicing Denver International Airport, has expanded its partnership with the E-470 Public Highway Authority to offer non-stop automated billing to ExpressToll customers. ExpressToll is the automated toll billing system used by E-470, the Northwest Parkway and CDOT’s Express Lanes. ExpressToll account holders who register their transponder number (not their billing account number) with their Canopy 5280 frequent parker account will now be able to enter and exit the facility without stopping, in addition to saving 25% on parking. Parking charges will be billed to the customer’s 5280 account with Canopy, not to the customer’s ExpressToll account. Billing to Canopy’s 5280 members’ accounts will utilize the same transponder used on E-470. This exclusive automation will allow for swift entrance and exit from Canopy Airport Parking, which is currently the only off-site Denver International Airport parking facility to utilize this technology. Canopy installed the equipment, although it was aided with counsel and vendor referrals from E-470. “We’re really excited about this latest step in the evolution of our partnership with E-470,” said Lesley Byram, director of sales and marketing for Canopy Airport Parking. “The technology upgrade that was deployed at our facility is going to be a guest convenience that we believe will be very well received by the public. “Through our long-standing partnership with E-470, we’ve learned that people sign up for ExpressToll because they want convenience and they want value,” continued Byram. “Canopy

Silver Car Rental

AUSTIN, Texas, July 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silvercar, the all-Audi airport car rental service, begins taking reservations at Denver International Airport today. The company will introduce a first-of-its-kind car rental operation at DIA on Monday, August 11th. Denver marks Silvercar’s 8th airport location nationwide and its third market opening in just three months. “We’re rapidly expanding, and our customers love it. Now we’re introducing service at Denver International, the fifth largest car rental market in the US, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with Canopy,” says Silvercar CEO Luke Schneider. “We’re going to ‘wow’ customers, both new and existing,” adds Schneider. “In an environment where weather can be an issue, thanks to Canopy we’re proud to say we’re the only car rental company that guarantees travelers can pick up their car in an indoor, climate-controlled facility. We’re also the only company that can guarantee that same car will have the safety and responsiveness of all-wheel drive.

City neighbor to Denver International Airport presses toll-road authority to build promised on-ramp

It’s payback time for Commerce City. Sixteen years ago, the city made a deal with the E-470 toll road to curb the speed limit, add traffic signals and limit improvements on Tower Road north of Peña Boulevard so Tower would not siphon motorists from E-470. Toll-road critics have long blasted these so-called non- compete agreements. The Commerce City/E-470 pact allowed the city to hike the speed limit above the 40 mph restriction and take out stoplights after extension of the toll highway was complete. Commerce City did so beginning in 2005. The final element of the agreement calls for E-470 to pay for construction of an on-ramp from southbound Tower to southbound Peña if that ramp has not been built by Jan. 1, 2012. No one stepped forward to build the ramp, so Commerce City has asked E-470 to fulfill its end of the bargain. E-470’s directors have “a general sense of obligation” that the toll highway must pay for the ramp, said E-470 executive director John McCuskey, “but they haven’t voted on it.” Details, including price and a construction timetable, still must be worked out, McCuskey said. E-470’s preliminary price tag for the ramp is about $4 million, while Commerce City’s estimate is about $10.7 million. Commerce City wants the final ramp constructed to especially serve residents and businesses in the Tower Road corridor north of Peña Boulevard, including the Reunion residential development near East 104th Avenue and Tower. “We hear a lot from our residents that it is

What are airports doing to boost CSR?

Air travel is one of the biggest contributors towards global warming and there are several airlines taking CSR rather seriously. What about airports? Every time there is a proposed expansion for airports there is a huge furore from the environmentalists and rightly so. Airport expansion not only affects the environment but it also adversely affects people’s health and the property market. I remember reading and watching a case study video about Heathrow’s planned expansion of their newest terminal well before it was opened and as far as airport expansion goes, they set they bar up high. The CSR policy that they used focussed on sustainability so much so that when they had to re-route a major water way, the moved everything from the old location to the new one – fish, rocks, soil, plants, everything. Now I saw the video when I was a student and remember being terribly impressed but no matter what your level of expertise is in the field, moving a water way and restoring it is ambitious undertaking. BAA recently launched the fourth in a new series of sustainability briefings entitled ‘Towards a Sustainable Heathrow’ is launched by BAA this week. The latest CSR focus includes education as well as employment and skills. Heathrow is one of the world’s major airport. Not only does it handle enormous air traffic but also supports over 320 other businesses operating out of it which employ around 76,500 people at the airport. A sustainability policy must cover all these aspects.

Canopy Airport Parking Meets Expanded Denver International Airport Holiday Parking Demand

Canopy Airport Parking’s 4,200 additional new parking spaces will help meet demand for parking at DIA as the airport braces for its’ busiest holiday season ever. Airport officials expect over 1.1 million travelers to pass through Denver International Airport during the 2010 Christmas Week, and the on-site Pikes Peak and East Economy parking lots had already filled by December 22, 2010. “With the busiest Christmas ever underway, Canopy Airport Parking is a welcome and necessary addition to DIA parking options” Karl Kelman, Canopy’s marketing manager explained. “With over 4,200 new spaces, Canopy will have availability and free online reservations when other parking facilities fill. At Canopy, guests have an assured parking space, and can travel with complete confidence.” “Canopy offers Indoor Valet, Covered Self-Park, and Open Air parking,” Kelman stated. “Indoor Valet is entirely new type of parking option for Denver International Airport.

New parking near DIA aims to be the “greenest”

Local travelers using Denver International Airport will get a new parking option on Wednesday with the opening of Canopy Airport Parking, a 4,200-space “green” private parking facility. The $18.5 million parking facility has solar panels to generate power for electric-vehicle “juicebars” (recharging stations), wind turbines on site, locally produced geothermal energy for heating and cooling, and high-efficiency LED lights. The aim is to be to be the “greenest” parking facility in the world, said John Schmid, chief executive officer with Propark America, which helped build it. The car park will offer an indoor valet parking service for $18 a day, a covered self-park option for $14 a day and open-air parking for $9 a day, Schmid said. Canopy has hired 100 employees, he said, after about 1,500 people attended a job fair sponsored by the company. Propark chief development officer Tom Bechard said the new parking operation will maintain competitive prices with other private lots, and DIA itself, while offering extra amenities for travelers. DIA’s parking garages also charge $18 a day; DIA’s valet parking service charges $27 a day. The Denver airport operates more than 40,000 parking spaces on its property, but Schmid contends there’s a market for Canopy’s service. “We’re going to treat you like a hotel guest,” he said. The valet service allows travelers to drop off and pick up their vehicles in the company’s climate-controlled indoor facility, Bechard said. Call or text when you land, and Canopy’s employees will have the vehicle ready and waiting for
