Event parking is a necessary piece of hosting any big event like concerts, festivals, carnivals, sports tournaments, or any large gathering that has many guests/spectators. Whether the event itself is running the parking, a private business, or nearby residents are taking on the responsibility, having good parking can make or break any event.
The easiest way to ensure that event parking runs smoothly is through effective communication, and the best way to facilitate good communication for event parking staff is by using push-to-talk two-way radios.
PTT Two-Way Radios for Event Parking
Here are some ways that improving communication with push-to-talk two-way radios can improve event parking:
Make Parking Easier for Guests
Using push-to-talk two-way radios can help the parking staff communicate so that they can all be on the same page on where to direct traffic, making parking that much easier for the guests. So as parking areas fill up, parking staff can open up other parking areas to more efficiently direct traffic where needed.
Plus, parking staff can identify which areas still have spots open and which are filled, and communicate that to the rest of the staff, so that the attendants can better direct drivers and so that drivers aren’t circling empty lots looking for open spaces or trying to park where they shouldn’t be parking. And, event parking staff can also communicate with event services staff who are also using push-to-talk two-way radios.
Direct Cars Out of the Event Efficiently
Another reason to outfit parking attendants with two-way radios for event parking is to improve communication when the event is over. If parking is tight and congested, guests may need direction and instruction from well-informed staff that is communicating effectively with one another.
Depending on the situation, it may be more efficient to let certain parking areas/cars go first so that the exit doesn’t become congested and filled with idling cars blocking one another in. Parking attendants can use their radios to disperse among the event parking area so that one portion of the staff can handle the exits, while others help to get guests out of their parking spots efficiently and on their way.
If your event has paid parking, then radios can make the process run much smoother. Without radios, attendants that are manning the register don’t have an effective way to communicate with other parking attendants.
However, if all staff are outfitted with radios, then the attendant at the register can communicate with the parking attendants to let them know what cars have paid so they can direct them rather than having to stop them, check for a ticket, and then have them go on their way.
Push-to-talk two-way radios are a great asset for any event parking. Among other things, they will ensure that guests reach the right parking areas at the right time, and don’t have to wait in line any longer than they have to. Plus, it makes the job easier for the parking staff, as they can easily send and receive messages.
