Company Information

Parker Pete Welcome Learning & Development

Impark (Imperial Parking Corporation) is one of the largest parking management companies in North America, operating approximately 3,400 parking facilities with 9,000 employees in more than 100 cities across the United States and Canada.

Impark began operations in Vancouver, BC, in 1962 with a single surface parking lot.  The simple concept of paying attention to service, combined with a strong entrepreneurial drive, led to steady growth during the 1960’s and ‘70’s.  By the end of the 1970’s, Impark dominated the Vancouver market and had established the depth of staff and resources to expand east.  Growth continued at a rapid pace through the 1980s with Impark opening its first lot in the United States in Minneapolis. The 1990s saw branch offices established in all of Canada’s major cities – including the acquisition of Canada’s (at the time) largest parking company, CitiPark, in 1995.  This move, along with steady growth in new accounts, established Impark as the largest parking management firm in Canada, with over 75% of the market’s commercial business.

Since opening its first location in the United States in the late 1980’s Impark has expanded at a rapid pace, including major projects such as an agreement with the San Francisco Giants to develop and manage 4,900 parking spaces surrounding the new Pacific Bell Stadium (now AT&T Park), Miller Park in Milwaukee, and Citi Field in New York.   Expansion into new markets through the 2000’s saw Impark firmly established as a true North American leader, and a number of acquisitions including companies in Portland and San Francisco, and more recently, the acquisition of Republic Parking in early 2016, substantially increases Impark’s geographic footprint and reach into key market segments such as healthcare, aviation, and municipal parking operations.

Company History

Impark (Imperial Parking Corporation) is one of the largest parking management companies in North America, operating approximately 3,400 parking facilities with 9,000 employees in more than 100 cities across the United States and Canada.

An enterprise that began with a single surface parking lot in 1962 has since become one of North America’s leading parking management firms, with 3,700 employees, gross receipts in excess of $600 million and operations throughout North America.  As a fully integrated company, we have the operational experience and multi-disciplinary capabilities to take any project from planning to completion.

The purchase of DLC Parking and Transportation in 2001 gave Impark a significant presence in the Northeastern U.S, and a significant shuttle operation, and expansion into new markets over the last five years has seen Impark firmly established as a truly North American leader in the industry with almost half of gross receipts now derived from U.S. operations.

Impark in New York

Impark currently operates over 50 parking facilities with more than 24,000 parking spaces in the New York Metropolitan area. These diverse operations include office, residential, healthcare, stadium/special event, commercial and mixed-use parking facilities.
