Sharing Excellence in Parking & Mobility Management

Perspective (Waayib)

Welcome to “WAAYIB.” In the Mayan language of ancient Central America, this word means “The Dreaming Place.”

For the Maya of Central America, the time and place of sleep was revered as the refuge of the supernatural, as if one was visiting a sacred temple in search of enlightenment and reinvigoration.

In “WAAYIB,” creative inspiration could arise from within one’s self, or be a revelation from ancestors or deities. This inspiration was only possible when one put away the worries of the day and surrendered control over ones thoughts to the starry night sky.

In "WAYYIB", or "The Dreaming Place" of sleep, ancient Mayans believed revelations about the future could be experienced (Glyph is courtesy of Inga Calvin, "The Hieroglyphic Decipherment Guide," 2012.)

As Latin America is the focus of our services, we reflected upon this concept as a way to present our thoughts on ourselves and on serving the Public Customer. We should not take ourselves so seriously that we cannot enjoy what we do. Nor should we take our Public Customers so lightly that we cannot empathize with their troubles.

The Public Customer, especially in transportation settings, often has little or no choice in transportation options. In many cases, we are not competing for the business of Public Customers as if we were in a market. Rather, we are dictating to the customer how they will receive the service we are providing.

This shift of power from the customer to us should place a special burden on those of us in Mobility Management. Because when this shift occurs, the Public Customer becomes a Captive Customer.

For us, “The Dreaming Place” is a time to enjoy our profession of helping people reach their destinations in life. It is a place to be sensitive to the wants and desires of the Public Customer. It is thinking about how to free the Captive Customer.

We have the knowledge and power to improve the quality of transportation services the Public Customer receives. Let us share our knowledge with our peers and our power with our customers.

Join us here in “The Dreaming Place” for the way things could be or should be. Let us imagine . . . or re-imagine transportation service.

H2H2H Foundation Names Gary Neff to Board of Governors

Panama City, Republic of Panama, 5 July 2018 – The H2H2H Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of parking industry veteran Gary Neff, CEO of New York City-based Park Assist, to its Board of Governors. The Governors guide the Foundation in its overall direction, vision and mission.

The H2H2H Foundation is an international, nonprofit organization promoting excellence in the delivery of efficient and sustainable “Mobility Management” (MM) services. MM is an innovative, worldwide trend in the public parking and transportation sector.

MM promotes communication and collaboration between managers of different elements of the transportation infrastructure within a particular community. These elements might include, for example, parking facilities, public transit networks, tollways, car ferries, car/bike sharing and Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Park Assist, a subsidiary of the Netherlands-based THK Group, is a premium provider of Parking Guidance Systems (PGS) and business intelligence solutions. Park Assist pioneered the first camera-based system for parking guidance. Over the past decade, the firm has become an industry leader in PGS with successful installations spanning 35 countries.

Park Assist’s unique, patented approach combines proprietary imaging software and advanced data analytics to produce actionable parking management information affecting occupancy, security and revenues.

“We are honored to engage a true industry leader in Gary Neff and the support of a pace-setting organization, such as Park Assist,” says Ramon Mota-Velasco P., Chairman of the Board of Governors for H2H2H. “The Foundation welcomes Gary’s sage advice as we continue to advance best practices in parking and transportation. By teaming with an innovator like Park Assist, we are another step closer to fulfilling our vision that everyone, especially those in the developing world, should experience high-quality, sustainable choices in personal transportation.”

Park Assist (www.parkassist.com) was a founding member of the Green Parking Council (now ParkSmart). “Park Assist has long been at the forefront of advocating for sustainable transportation worldwide,” Neff said. “We are pleased to partner with H2H2H in its mission of ‘mobility sustainability’. Our technology, coupled with our emphasis on business intelligence, not only directs parking patrons to the nearest available parking space, but offers parking facility owners and managers real-time, mission-critical data. There are immediate benefits, such as reduced congestion, heightened security, less cruising for an open space and market-appropriate pricing.”

Via its website (www.H2H2H.org), social media, forthcoming publications and future conferences in Latin American cities, H2H2H aims to spotlight the very best operations and solutions in the management of parking facilities, transportation demand mitigation, intermodal linkages and automated traffic enforcement. “We are truly thankful when quality organizations like Park Assist take notice of what we are doing and want to accompany us on our journey toward excellence in Mobility Management,” Mota-Velasco said.
