Parking Panda Partners With Greyhound on Parking Near Terminals
Greyhound Lines is partnering with Parking Panda, the nation’s leading provider for on-demand parking, to let its customers discover and reserve parking online near select Greyhound bus terminals. With the ability to compare available parking options and prices, consumers can book their Greyhound travel, search, reserve, and pay for a guaranteed spot, creating a seamless ground transportation experience.
More than 50 terminals are now part of the program, with more to be added through 2016, the companies said.
Through this partnership, “Greyhound customers can now leverage Parking Panda’s thousands of parking lots and garages across 40 cities to pre-purchase parking within easy walking distance of select terminals.”
Customers can view available parking options and compare prices directly from the parking section of the respective terminal’s page on Greyhound.com in advance of their trip, or view parking for all terminals directly at parkinggreyhound.com.
“We’re excited about our partnership with Parking Panda, as it allows customers to better manage their travel by comparing parking options and reserving the perfect parking spot near our terminals,” said Andy Kaplinsky, Chief Commercial Officer, Greyhound Lines Inc. “Traveling on Greyhound is even easier now that customers have a useful tool that eliminates the challenge of driving around searching for convenient parking.
“We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the customer experience, and this partnership helps create seamless, hassle-free travel,” Kaplinsky said.
Once a Greyhound reservation is made, parking passes are e-mailed instantly to the customer and can be printed for guaranteed entrance at the selected location. Parking Panda’s platform integrates seamlessly with the partner parking location to ensure that sufficient space is set aside for reserved customers so that parking availability is 100% guaranteed, even if the lot otherwise fills up, the companies said.
