Not only can EasyPark take credit for maintaining the landscaping of the gem that is Lot 19 on West Hastings Street (which we all know and love) but they have now been recognized in the parking industry worldwide for their marketing initiatives – all with the goal of making parking a friendly experience in our downtown.
EasyPark received a "Best of 2015" Award of Excellence for Brand Awareness, recognizing a number of marketing initiatives EasyPark has launched in the past four years, beginning with the EasyPark App, launched in 2011, and continuing with the FlexPass, a draw-down and top-up card that offers customers a 10% discount on parking, and a partnership with Vancouver-based Eco-Service, providing "waterless" car washes for customers at selected lots.
EasyPark was also one of 11 parking-related businesses (3 in Canada) to receive a Marketing and Communications award for EasyPerks, a loyalty program that provides discounts to local attractions and businesses such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver Maritime Museum, Science World, Vancouver Foodie Tours, Harbour Air Seaplanes and Vancouver Whitecaps.
"Truly, parking matters," says EasyPark CEO Nigel Bullers. "It's an essential part of the equation when it comes to improving traffic flow, reducing congestion, and helping Vancouver become the greenest city in less than a decade. EasyPark is a relatively new player internationally, so receiving these honours for our efforts shows we can be a leader for other organizations around the world."
EasyPark is always looking to transform their spaces to better serve the public – whether that’s providing a great parking service, being a great film set location, or maintaining the beautiful little oasis, Lot 19.
