ACE Announces On Demand Parking Service Through Partnership with BluCar App

San Diego, CA – ACE Parking, one the nation’s largest parking management companies, today announced its partnership with BluCar, an on-demand parking app.

The new partnership allows consumers to request on-demand parking services, or “cloud parking”, at the drop of a pin using the BluCar iOS app in North Park, Hillcrest, La Jolla and Little Italy. The service is available Thursday through Saturday during the hours of 5pm and 11pm.

In each of the service areas, there are specified safe zones visible on the BluCar App. Customers choose a drop off point on a map which then signals an ACE Parking attendant to meet them when they arrive. The attendant takes the vehicle and parks it at an ACE Parking location. To retrieve the vehicle, the customer selects their desired return location in the BluCar app and an ACE Parking attendant delivers it within 10 minutes. The app offers real-time tracking of their vehicle in transit to and from the parking location. Customers can securely pay and tip for the service directly through the BluCar app, eliminating the need for cash.

ACE Parking uses experienced parking attendants who have been through extensive customer service training.

“ACE is very excited about bringing this type of technology to the parking industry to offer our customers a convenient service and parking solution during an evening out,” said John Baumgardner, CEO of ACE Parking. “People are already using similar technologies for car services so we believe the parking solution will be just as popular.”

The partnership hopes to solve a common challenge that many businesses face with not having enough street parking or a parking lot for their customers. Now, customers will have the ability to request the service directly in front of those businesses.

“The idea behind the BluCar App is to offer customers virtual parking at the front door of their destination so they don’t have to search for parking or walk very far from the lot,” said Michael Dee, co-founder and Vice President of Sales and Business Development for BluCar. “The app is especially appealing to individuals who do not want or are unable to walk very far.
