Quality & timeliness of shuffle bus
(September 11, 2014) When we arrived in the morning to park our vehicle we waited less than five minutes before the shuttle bus arrived. The driver was very informative he made sure we all new the area where we were parked at and gave us cards with the names where we had parked at and phone number where to reach them upon arrival. When we arrived from our trip there was a shuttle bus outside already and we asked the driver if he had space for us and he said he would take us so we did not have to wait at all. Overall we had no complaint's about Smart Park Service's at all.

First Experience was a good one
(September 4, 2014) Drivers and staff are courteous and friendly. It took a little longer than I thought for the shuttle to travel a few miles to the airport for pickups, but overall my first experience using SmartPark at PHL was good.

Two thumbs up
(September 4, 2014) We were pleased with the van driver that took us to the airport and the driver from the airport back to our car. When we returned, it started to rain. Our driver pulled up so we would be under the cover of a roof while loading. He carefully handled my one bag that I said contained breakable items. Using Smart Park gives both convenience and peace of mind during our travels.

Smart Parking
(August 22, 2014) Thank you - we had a very nice experience. We came from South Jersey. Found the lot with no trouble. We were directed to a spot and the shuttle was right there. The driver put our bags in and took us directly to our airport entrance. Coming back we called the # and the driver was there in a few minutes. Took our bags and took us directly to our car. The care was as we had left it. The drivers were very courteous and friendly. We will use this service again.
