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.

New “Parkcast” Coming Your Way: ReinventingParking.org Adds Podcast

The H2H2H Foundation is pleased to continue its longstanding support for the work of prolific author, blogger, consultant and academic Dr. Paul Barter of ReinventingParking.org and ReinventingTransport.org.

Hailed by Parking Magazine as a candidate to bear the mantle as “the next Don Shoup”, Paul is Australian by origin and now resides and teaches in Singapore.

He has consulted worldwide with numerous public and private entities on parking policy and has originated a number of groundbreaking thought pieces on parking management. These have included his concepts on “Walkable Parking” and the “RESPOND” model of parking management, which you can read more about on his website.

Paul is revving up his outreach with a new podcast slated to begin very soon. Anyone interested in parking policy on a municipal level would benefit from tuning in. Learn more and sign up here:

https://www.reinventingparking.org/2018/07/new-podcast-option.html

The podcast is free; however, we urge you to consider support of this nonprofit effort to spread best practices in parking and mobility management.

And if you are involved in urban transportation and mobility management, don’t forget to peruse his seminal work at ReinventingTransport.org.

The H2H2H Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to “sharing excellence in parking and mobility management”, which includes promoting best practices in the administration of parking and transportation facilities. We also advocate for transportation consumers and advance alternative mobility options, such as car sharing, bicycling, carpools and many others.
