    Remote and Hybrid Employees Need Flexible Parking Options

      The coronavirus pandemic created a sudden shift in how people work. Companies had no choice but to adapt, and employees had to create new work environments at home. If you’re like most workers in downtown Oakland, you went from daily commutes and an ever-present need for parking to working remotely full time.

      The world is starting to recover from the pandemic, and many workers are beginning to return to the office. However, this post-COVID world is far different from what you knew in 2019.

      Despite the slow return to normalcy, there’s a hesitation about returning to the office full time. The data suggests that many workers are adopting a hybrid work model.

      It’s not hard to see why. The last two years of remote work showed that a physical presence in the office wasn’t necessary for the success of a business. Thanks to high-speed internet and a bevy of technologies that support remote work, there’s been a considerable pushback from employees asked to return to the office.

      Workers want flexible work environments, and the pandemic demonstrated that a hybrid work mode was possible. Employers are listening, offering the opportunity to work a few days at home and a few days in the office. This new normal requires flexible and convenient downtown Oakland parking options.

      The Best Option for Partially Remote Workers

      Are you among the many hybrid workers who need flexible parking near your office in downtown Oakland? SmartPass is an excellent option that meets your particular needs.

      Why pay for monthly parking passes when you only visit the office a few days a week? While your pre-pandemic parking provider likely offered a monthly plan you used regularly, your partially remote schedule makes those costs unreasonable and unnecessary.

      Without your former parking plan, you might turn to standard entrance fees when you come in to the office. North American parking data shows that transient parking demand is recovering faster than the demand for monthly passes. That could indicate that hybrid workers aren’t getting more flexible parking plans from their former service providers.

      Unfortunately, single-day passes and steep Oakland City Center parking rates can add up quickly, making that route even more inconvenient. SmartPass offers a happy medium. Even with your hybrid schedule, you can get cost-effective parking and all the convenience you need.

      SmartPass offers a variety of parking passes that cater to the partially remote worker. Whether you have defined office workdays or all the flexibility to change your schedule every week, SmartPass has a pass for you!

      Best of all, you get the convenience of digital and contactless access.
