How we work has changed a lot in the last few years, as more people return to the office, how commuters park may need to change too! Never fear, SpotHero is here to help drivers get back into the swing of things. Here are a few tips to help you have the best commuting experience possible as you get back into gear.
Explore Alternative Parking Times
Early bird specials are still a great option for drivers parking for a traditional 9 to 5, and many facilities offer early bird specials through SpotHero! If you do have more flexibility in your schedule, consider looking into parking later in the day after rush hour has become less intense. You may be able to save time and money by starting out later, or spending part of your work day working from home.
Maximize Your Pre-Tax Dollars With a SpotHero for Business Account
If your company offers a commuter benefits program such as Wageworks or Via, consider taking advantage of those benefits through SpotHero! When you set up a SpotHero for Business profile, you can use pre-tax dollars to pay and reserve parking in advance. With a SpotHero for Business account, it’s also easy to keep track of expenses by syncing with your preferred expense tool or having receipts sent to one email address. You can learn more about accepted benefits providers here.
Park and Ride to Save
Commuting can be hectic. Instead of driving all the way to the office, consider parking close to a public transit stop instead, and taking a train or bus for the last leg of your commute. Often spots further away from downtown are less expensive, and you may actually add a little time to your day by avoiding sitting in traffic. Who doesn’t want to save fuel, money and time!?
Take Advantage of SpotHero’s Spot Filters
Sometimes you need more than just a parking spot; you need a parking spot that lets you go in and out, a spot that’s covered so you stay cool or a spot that offers touchless parking. Let SpotHero do the hard work for you.
By selecting “filters” on the results page in the app and on the website, you can better refine results and find the spot that works best for your needs.
Peace, love, and parking!
