PARKING SPOT HITS THE MARK WITH SHUTTLE SERVICE

This article focuses on The Parking Spot, a shuttle service operating in 12 locations at 7 major airports in the U.S. that provides door-to-door service from parking lots to airport terminals. Even though the company has been operating successfully for 7 years, it continues to be faced with the normal challenges associated with shuttle services. The article looks at some of these issues and how they are handled, such as high fuel costs, fleet replacement, retaining quality drivers, and dealing with congestion in heavily-trafficked areas such as the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
