CHICAGO, Aug. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Parking Spot, the nation’s largest near-airport parking facility, today unveiled its first 100% electric shuttle, which will serve travelers to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The new shuttle was developed in cooperation with Global Transportation Solutions, Inc. The Parking Spot plans to add more electric shuttles to its fleet to further reduce the company’s and travelers’ carbon footprint.
While The Parking Spot’s current shuttles at LAX run on compressed natural gas (CNG) and are already 20% more efficient than petrol shuttles, each new electric shuttle will further reduce The Parking Spot’s greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated £45,000 per year.
“We understand the importance of keeping people moving with sustainable travel options,” said Jeff Foland, President and CEO of The Parking Spot. “We are excited about this important step in this process and are making progress towards a meaningful reduction in carbon footprint.”
The number of consumers buying electric vehicles is expected to triple by 2025, and The Parking Spot strives to meet the evolving needs of its customers. Today, customers flying from nearly half of The Parking Spot’s markets can enjoy the use of EV charging options for their personal vehicles. The Parking Spot will expand these charging opportunities, both by expanding current offerings in markets like Austin, Charlotte, Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, and by introducing new offerings in all remaining markets.
