The attendants at Park2Fly at Newark Airport know that figuring out what to do with your car when heading out of town can be a source of frustration. Most public parking is short-term, tow trucks are always on the prowl for illegally parked cars, and daycares generally only accept cars that have been potty trained. The Park2Fly lot presents a solution to this conundrum of car ownership. Attendants keep watch over their flock of vehicles 24 hours a day while owners fly in and out of Newark Airport. Travelers simply pull into the lot and select an outdoor or indoor space on their own—or let a valet do it for no extra charge—and then wait a few minutes for the airport shuttle to arrive and whisk them off to the airport curb.
Park2Go.com’s friendly, uniformed staffers stand guard at their parking-lot posts 24 hours per day, keeping a safe watch over cars while their owners jet off to their destinations via Newark Liberty International Airport. Free shuttle vans arrive every 10 minutes to whisk travelers on the four-minute ride to the airport, picking them up and dropping them off right at their cars rather than making them search for a bus stop or hitch rides on another traveler’s rolling suitcase. While owners are away, cars remain secure throughout their stay, protected by surveillance cameras and a fence that surrounds the lot.

Imperial Travels and Limousine Services is much closer to a mom-and-pop business than your typical chauffeur service?at least in origin. It was founded by a father and son, the former a part of the transportation industry for more than three decades. And in terms of service, the limo company runs like a well-oiled machine. Its chauffeurs shuttle passengers to and from airports, weddings, or kindergarten proms in limos, sedans, SUVs, and vans.
