Installs automated billing equipment to serve ExpressToll and Canopy customers
Commerce City, Colorado – Propark America announced in a ribbon-cutting event Wednesday morning (March 25) that its Canopy Airport Parking facility, servicing Denver International Airport, has expanded its partnership with the E-470 Public Highway Authority to offer non-stop automated billing to ExpressToll customers. ExpressToll is the automated toll billing system used by E-470, the Northwest Parkway and CDOT’s Express Lanes.
ExpressToll account holders who register their transponder number (not their billing account number) with their Canopy 5280 frequent parker account will now be able to enter and exit the facility without stopping, in addition to saving 25% on parking.
Parking charges will be billed to the customer’s 5280 account with Canopy, not to the customer’s ExpressToll account. Billing to Canopy’s 5280 members’ accounts will utilize the same transponder used on E-470. This exclusive automation will allow for swift entrance and exit from Canopy Airport Parking, which is currently the only off-site Denver International Airport parking facility to utilize this technology. Canopy installed the equipment, although it was aided with counsel and vendor referrals from E-470.
“We’re really excited about this latest step in the evolution of our partnership with E-470,” said Lesley Byram, director of sales and marketing for Canopy Airport Parking. “The technology upgrade that was deployed at our facility is going to be a guest convenience that we believe will be very well received by the public.
“Through our long-standing partnership with E-470, we’ve learned that people sign up for ExpressToll because they want convenience and they want value,” continued Byram. “Canopy sought to bring those same ideals to the airport parking experience, so that ExpressToll customers enjoy a seamless experience, from highway to runway.”
For a limited time, as part of the partnership expansion, Canopy Airport Parking is offering existing 5280 frequent parker members a free day of parking for opting into the ExpressToll Rewards program by adding their transponder number to their 5280 account. Canopy is also offering three free days of parking for customers that sign up for their ExpressToll account at the Canopy parking facility.
