Oakland International Airport has awarded a contract to Scheidt & Bachmann USA to install and maintain a new Parking Revenue Control System (PARCS). The new system will service the Airport’s public and permit parking lots, totaling 8,400 stalls. It includes integrated license plate recognition and CCTV to improve security, features Customer Loyalty programs, and replaces a 10-year old system supplied by Xerox. The project is expected to be completed by mid- 2017.
“Parking at OAK is an important part of the Airport’s core business and a crucial customer service function,” said Port of Oakland Director of Aviation Bryant L. Francis. “This new system will improve customer service by reducing exit wait times and expanding promotional marketing programs.”
Oakland International is the fourth busiest airport in California and second busiest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Serving over 11 million travelers each year, OAK is the closest airport to the region’s top tourism and entertainment venues. It is also the closest airport for most local residents.
Beginning October 6th, OAK customers can fly nonstop to El Paso, Texas, bringing Oakland’s air service roster to over 50 destinations on 12 different airline brands – seven of which operate with OAK as their sole gateway into the San Francisco Bay region.
