More than 7.3 million passengers utilized John Glenn International in 2016; a growth of 7.8% over the previous year.

TIBA was selected to provide a complete, networked PARCS solution for the airport’s multi-level parking structure and 7 parking lots consisting of 74 exit and entrance lanes and 14,000 plus parking spaces. The new TIBA PARCS solution will also incorporate license plate recognition (LPR), to speed garage entries and exits in addition to an online billing platform to provide an easier, quicker and safer customer experience.
TIBA’s complete PARCS solution offers unparalleled agility, tailored to the business needs of complex airport installations. TIBA PARCS uses advanced parking technologies to improve operational efficiency, build revenue, and enhance business intelligence. TIBA PARCS seamlessly integrates with third-party online services, such as parker loyalty programs, to create new business opportunities and to help guarantee investment security.
