In 1987, Republic Parking expanded its operation to the Pacific Northwest and created a partner company, Republic Parking Northwest, Inc., based in Seattle, Washington.
Since then, our Northwest portfolio has grown to over 222 separate sites located in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. As a full service transportation management solution we have provided our clients solutions to their parking, valet, shuttle and curbside management issues. Republic Parking Northwest is able to leverage its relationship with its partner company providing efficient cost effective operations to our clients. While Republic Parking Northwest works closely with our partner company decision making is made locally which allows our Northwest region property owners and clients the autonomy to work directly with business owners and decision makers.
