Park Ride & Fly USA's car caretakers protect vacationing cars within 24-hour, well-lit parking lots near airports in more than 30 states. After dropping off their automobiles, customers can transport themselves and their luggage to the airport aboard one of the company’s complimentary shuttles or human-size hamster balls. While away, patrons rest easy knowing that their steel steeds are safe within fenced lots that are monitored by 24-hour surveillance. At many locations, shuttles also swing by the terminal to pick up returning travelers and reunite them with their respective vehicles, which are first freed of cloud-based artillery, including snow or recently rained molasses.

Located about a block away from Lucas Oil Stadium, the Pan Am Plaza Parking Garage grants shelter to vehicle-owning fans while taking in the Colts game at the stadium or a neighboring establishment. Fans can park in the garage any time of day on Sunday, November 6, when the Colts rear up to square off against the Atlanta Falcons at 1 p.m. in either a football match or a debate over which is the better symbol of the American frontier. Head to the nearby garage after the game to attempt to beat the traffic, or stay downtown for the day to celebrate a victory on the field. There is no time limit on parking, but drivers must remove their parked vehicles or portable living rooms from the premise at some point on November 6.
Easy Airport Parking offers safe haven to cars whose owners are bound for Indianapolis International Airport. Drivers silence engines in a valet lane and exchange keys or ignition-lodged screwdrivers for a claim check, relinquishing vehicles to employees who steer them into a standard or oversize spot. They then hop aboard a shuttle bus that drops off at terminals within 5 or 10 minutes. Since the buses run 24 hours a day, jet setters can call for a pickup as soon as they return, no matter the hour. The parking lot is also open all day and night, with security fences, cameras, and guards watching over roadsters and keeping patrons' personal chauffeurs from escaping. For an additional fee, cars can freshen up with a wash.
