Purchase Park 2 Fly: Your Travel Supports Their Journey
Travel is not easy, or inexpensive these days. So what could be better than saving nearly 60% off parking that is also convenient?
Purchase Park 2 Fly has the answer: How about having those rates support 20+ local jobs, while making a $150,000 donation for scholarships at a local college!
Launched two years ago, Purchase Park 2 Fly was an idea first conceived by SUNY Purchase Administrator and Professor Bill Guerraro, then studied, developed and refined by his Entrepreneurship Program.
Purchase Park 2 Fly is a valet parking services that offers steeply discounted off-site parking, utilizing the lots of nearby SUNY Purchase, while conserving resources from the County. Under the 501 c 3 umbrella of Purchase College Association, Purchase Park 2 Fly is a non-profit whose proceeds go the school scholarship program. Their tag line-so perfectly coined by Maggie Guerraro, wife of founder and President Bill Guerraro-says it all: Your Travel Supports Their Journey.
Phil Sanford was one of those students involved in the project, he worked for the start-up upon graduation, and now is the VP of Marketing. According to Phil, this past year they’ve been parking 150-200 cars daily, up to 300 cars on weekends, and approaching 500 0ver some holidays.
Reserving online, rates are $10.00 per day, as compared to $28.00 per day at the airport. Only 4 miles from the airport, and fully staffed and with free shuttle service 24/7, fliers need allow only minimal extra time to arrive at terminal on time. Cars are kept in open, well-lit lots, patrolled by PP2F staff members, as well as NYS Police that is part of campus security.
Westchester County Airport has come a long way from when it was first built in 1942 to house the Air National Guard, and protect the local water supply. When the long-debated new terminal opened in 1995, many issues were addressed, but others quickly followed.
In the big picture, by utilizing existing parking spaces Purchase Park 2 Fly also conserves county resources, while providing a greener solution for handling ever-increasing airport traffic. In the smaller picture, consumers have less stress, keep more money in their pocket, while helping fund the scholastic future of students. Seems like your travel not only supports their journey, but the rest of us as well!
