New Express Parking service allows shoppers the convenience to reserve spaces for quick pick-ups and returns or simply guarantee they get the best spots
Austin, TX (November 7, 2019) – MyPark, the popular Miami-based parking solutions provider that partners with malls, private and public garages and property management companies, announces the launch of its service, Express Parking by MyPark at Barton Creek Square. The service will be made available to the public starting on Thursday, November 7, 2019.
Express Parking by MyPark provides a quick and easy way for shoppers to pick-up, exchange or return an item, or simply reserve the best spots in front of the entrance for a day at the shopping center. Visitors can download the app and reserve a premium parking space just steps away from key locations. The space will be reserved by the unique MyPark device which is then lowered by the user by tapping the “let me in” button on their smartphone.
Express Parking by MyPark offers complimentary parking for the first 30 minutes and then just $3 per hour thereafter. This much needed solution eliminates the time and effort exerted driving up and down the parking aisles in search of an ideal spot near a desired store or restaurant entrance. The launch will include two designated MyPark sections, with a total number of 10 spaces in key locations within the property, including:
Barton Creek Square
- Section E1, 5 spaces (Near AMC 14 Theater and Cheesecake Factory)
- Section E2, 5 spaces (Near Dillard’s and Men’s Wearhouse)
“Our other Texas launch at Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso was met with a lot of enthusiasm, so we’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Simon Properties in the state and bring the convenience of MyPark to Barton Creek Square,” said Luis Mayendia, CEO of MyPark. “This property is an ideal fit for our technology and we are certain that shoppers will enjoy this amenity, especially with the upcoming holiday season.”
This shopping center joins 27 other shopping centers around the U.S., including Mall of America, King of Prussia and Cielo Vista Mall, 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.
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 (search MYPARK), register and tell the app where and when they would like to park. 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.
“Barton Creek Square is known as a staple in the area, so we wanted to make sure that the shopping experience is even more enjoyable with an added amenity like MyPark,” said Scott Budge, General Manager of Barton Creek Square. “With MyPark’s unique and affordable service, guests will save time and get the best spots.”
