Business Journal: Parking Garages Offer More
The City of Sacramento has decided to offer oil changes, dry cleaning and more at its downtown parking garages.
Thursday, October 12, 2006
The city’s decision mirrors what’s been happening elsewhere. Busy commuters parking in the 5 downtown garages, or at Downtown Plaza, could arrange car washes, smog checks, even books on loan through a concierge service in the garage. A firm will be chosen to orchestrate all this. The city wants to see more people using their garages, opening additional spots at streetside meters. Such services appeal to busy commuters currently using several corporate garages in the city. City officials expect the concierge service to be up and running by next summer.
