New Company Brings Better Amenities, Quality Service

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - FastPark, a Cincinnati-based off-site airport parking company, has completed the acquisition of the Central Parking Systems facility near the General Mitchell International Airport (MKE). The facility, located at 5201 South Howell Ave., Milwaukee, WI, was acquired in March 2008. FastPark has completed the rebranding of the facility with new signage and shuttle buses.

In addition to the name, signage, uniform and shuttle bus changes, FastPark has also made significant beautification and maintenance upgrades to the grounds of the facility, including new landscaping and fencing. Milwaukee customers also can now sign up for the company's Relax for Rewards loyalty program which includes discounted parking; and enjoy FastPark standard amenities such as free newspapers upon entry (Mon. through Fri.), bottled water upon exit, express exit convenience and complimentary luggage assistance.

It controls 19 facilities situated on more than 21,000,000 square feet of land. FastPark's Milwaukee facility sits on almost nine acres.

FastPark's unique approach to customer service is its formula for attracting and retaining loyal customers.

"Door-to-door service, free newspapers and bottled water and limited shuttle stops are just a few of the perks our regular customers come to count on," said Melanie Chavez, chief marketing officer for FastPark. "We're also a very family-oriented company which is why we offer all passengers free luggage assistance and even free coloring books to children."
