Where to Park if You’re in the Hybrid Workforce

Like most people working in downtown Chicago, you’ve likely spent a good part of the last two years working remotely. The coronavirus pandemic transformed the traditional workplace, forcing companies to ditch their fancy high-rise offices for a cozier at-home alternative.

While the omicron variant certainly caused a hiccup, many businesses in Chicago are starting to return to normal. But digging deeper into the data shows that monthly parking pass sales aren’t recovering as quickly. While workers are coming back, it’s on their own terms. And instead of paying for monthly passes, more people are pulling tickets for transient parking.

One thing the pandemic revealed is that businesses don’t need an entire office of workers to keep things running smoothly. Companies of all sizes survived with remote work, and as a result, more employees are seeking flexible work arrangements.

This shift could be transitory, but there’s no denying that workers want this hybrid work mode to stay. Because many people are spending only a couple of days a week in the office, the old-school way of paying for parking is long behind us. Luckily, there are better alternatives.

Get Flexible Passes That Fit Your Unique Parking Needs

SmartPass is the perfect choice for anyone who needs flexible downtown Chicago parking.

If you’re one of the new hybrid workers in Chicago, paying for monthly passes doesn’t make sense. Why pay for an entire month when you’ll only visit your office once or twice a week? That commitment isn’t ideal, and the costs associated with full monthly plans don’t make sense for partially remote workers.

But on your return to the office, you might have noticed that your old parking service provider doesn’t offer any flexibility to meet your needs. Traditional parking services typically just have monthly passes. As a result, your only option is to use daily transient parking passes or pricey street parking.

SmartPass bridges the gap and provides the best of both worlds. Many of our plan options cater to hybrid workers. You can get the flexibility you need while also getting the special privileges of being a pass holder.

SmartPass is also ultra-convenient. You can view plan options and pay online through your smartphone, then use the digital pass to access the 311 S. Wacker Dr. parking garage safely.

It doesn’t matter where you work or how often you have to commute. SmartPass has a parking pass for you!
