PARC obtains national reaccreditation
PARC is part of an elite class of top parking and mobility organizations following its renewed status as an Accredited Parking Organization (APO). APO is a designation for parking organizations that recognizes best practices in responsible parking management and operations, customer service, professional development, sustainability and access management, safety, data security and risk management, and more.
“I am proud to be a part of an organization that continues to meet best-in-class standards for parking management and operations,” said Mike Tudor, executive director of PARC.
To maintain the APO Accreditation, an organization must demonstrate its ongoing commitment to evaluation and improvement by implementing industry best practices. Applicant organizations work with third-party reviewers and must meet more than 100 criteria in 14 categories, in addition to 25 or more required criteria. Organizations apply for reaccreditation every three years, demonstrating their commitment to continue meeting the evolving APO standards.
The Parking Authority of River City (PARC) provides public parking to meet the existing and future needs of the community. With 15 garages and 4 lots in and around the central business district, totaling more than 11,000 spaces in garages and lots and over 4,500 metered on-street spaces, PARC ensures its operations are run in an efficient, safe, convenient, and user-friendly manner.
