On February 24 (Wed), 2016, Park24 Co., Ltd. started a field test of a valet parking service to be offered in the city of Ginza, which allows users to deposit their car at any predetermined time and place, and pick it up on their way back also at any predetermined time and place.
In the new Ginza Valet Service, our staff of highly skilled drivers will receive a customer's car at the time and place requested by the customer, and park it at a nearby Times parking lot. Later, the driver will deliver the car to another predetermined time and place for pickup by the customer.
This field test provides an introductory trial service to Times Club members enrolled to participate in the test. Customers will become able to enjoy shopping and meals free of stress in the entertainment district of Ginza. This solution will resolve customers' issues such as not being able to find a parking spot, or when they are running late due to traffic congestion.
