Downtown Employee Parking Program - Parking Incdentive for Downtown Workers
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, July 15, 2016 – To help maximize street parking for Anchorage downtown visitors and customers, and to encourage the potential workforce to work in downtown Anchorage, EasyPark today announced it is introducing a pilot Downtown Employee Parking Program that will provide discounted parking initially to part-time or low wage hourly employees, in collaboration with the Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall.
“We want to encourage employees to use the permit program and park without worrying about time restrictions and hunting for open spaces on the street,” said Brian Borguno, Parking Director for EasyPark. “The Employee Parking Program will also open up street parking to those that come to downtown Anchorage to shop at their favorite destination.”
This February, Borguno and Stephen Welch, General Manager for Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall, learned through an extensive survey that mall employees felt finding and affording parking was difficult.
“We’re excited to partner with EasyPark and to facilitate a program of this nature,” said Welch. “We value our estimated 1,000 employees as much as we value our customers, and are thrilled to provide them with this service.”
Once the pilot Employee Parking Program trial is completed, EasyPark will look to expand the program to all of downtown Anchorage.
