NYC Parking Tips

parking for businesses

There’s no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic has drastically altered our daily lives — especially for those of us who live and work in New York City. But as the Big Apple gets back on its feet, it becomes even more important for us to take a closer look at how the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will inform the decisions we make — including where we park.

Although New York is known for its reliable access to public transportation, concerns relating to the novel coronavirus have made many residents less likely to take advantage of the subways, buses, and trains the city has to offer. Even taxis and Ubers may not be the best option. Should you have access to your own vehicle, that’s typically the safest choice. But what happens when you need to park?

Around 63% of U.S. drivers say they avoid driving to places like airports, shopping centers, sports arenas, and other leisure destinations due to the parking challenges involved. And if you’ve ever driven around New York City, you’ll know first-hand how difficult it can be to find guaranteed parking.

But many of us need suitable parking plans more than ever. Some businesses remain closed, but that won’t be the case forever. As organizations start to reopen their doors and remote workers come back to the office, corporate parking once again becomes a necessity. What’s more, long-term parking solutions are in higher demand as residents continue to stay home. n a place like New York, street parking is hard to come by — which means many rely on monthly parking passes to ensure their vehicles stay safe. And in many areas, available parking lots around certain facilities (like pharmacies) are being utilized for COVID-19 testing. That makes parking for businesses even harder to come by.

Fortunately, there are a number of options for securing reliable and safe company parking in the city. At Icon Parking, we’ve made a number of adjustments that will prioritize the health of both our employees and our customers, including:

  • Sanitization of common vehicle touch points
  • Employee training relating to social distancing practices
  • Consistent use of face masks and gloves
  • Completely contactless reservation and payment systems via mobile devices

As many New Yorkers return to work, parking for businesses will become an even greater priority. And now that we’re more focused on the safety practices utilized by the establishments we frequent, it’s essential that even your parking lot attendants follow all recommended guidelines for lowering the risk of viral transmission. If you’re seeking parking for businesses that will provide you with peace of mind on multiple levels during the pandemic, we’re here to assist.
