San Juan, Puerto Rico (September 19, 2018) – MyPark, the Miami-based parking solutions provider used by malls, private and public garages and property management companies, today announced the expansion of its popular service at Plaza Las Americas in Puerto Rico. The service will be made available to the public starting on Friday, September 21st.
The MyPark app provides guests with the ability to reserve a premium spot by the mall entrance prior to their arrival with the simple touch of a button. The expansion will add on 25 MyPark spaces, bringing the new total number to 35 in key locations within the property, including:
Plaza Las Americas
- Section A, 5 spaces (Located in front of the main entrance)
- Section B, 10 spaces (Located near Applebee’s)
- Section C, 10 spaces (Located near Ponte Fresco entrance)
- Section D, 10 spaces (Located near Sears entrance)
Spaces can be booked on demand or reserved in advance, through the app, for $7 for up to four hours and $3 each additional hour. MyPark-trained attendants are on-site at the property, main entrance section A, during the launch period to help customers download and navigate the app and assist with any parking questions.
“Plaza Las Americas is a testament to MyPark’s continuous success in the market as users have requested the service at other entrances around the property,” said Angel Alvarez, President of MyPark Puerto Rico. “We continue to evolve and offer our customers more choices and enhance their shopping experience. This property is an ideal fit for our technology and we look forward to expanding this relationship as the results prove the value for consumers and tenants in our native Puerto Rico.”
This mall joins 15 other shopping centers around the island and the U.S. that have implemented the unique parking amenity for guests, in which shoppers can reserve a prime parking spot both when and where they need it, directly from their smartphones. The solution eliminates the time and effort exerted driving up and down the parking aisles in search of an ideal spot near a desired store entrance.
Users can go to the usemypark.com website and click on the links to their respective app stores or download the app directly from the Android or iOS stores, register and tell the app where and when they would like to park. Then they choose the section they want (the best spot is selected automatically by default) and confirm their reservation. Once users arrive at their reserved space, they simply tap “Let Me In” on their iOS or Android device and the unique MyPark reservation device will lower to give them access.
“As the second largest mall in Latin America, we are always looking to partner with innovative companies like MyPark that will provide exceptional services to our customers,” said Lorraine Vissepo, Communications Director of Plaza Las Americas. “MyPark offers convenience, affordable parking choices, and ease of access, which we believe will be a win for both guests and retailers.”
