On the Blog: Worker Bees, Queen Bees, and Parking's Royal Jelly
What's the difference between a worker bee and a queen bee? If the worker bee vanishes, nobody notices -- there are plenty more where she came from. But if the queen goes missing, the hive has a big problem. The queen bee started as a worker bee and then got a lot of royal jelly -- the magical substance that transformed her into a queen. There's metaphorical royal jelly in parking, too, and Lanier Parking Systems Territory Manager Frank Giles took to the Parking Matters® Blog to break down what it is and how everyone can get some to become indispensable.

Beyond the Uproar: Paid Parking in Las Vegas

But introducing paid parking in the entertainment capital of the world was no small feat. Read about the massive undertaking and the technologies and systems that had to be simultaneously incorporated in some huge garages in this month's issue of The Parking Professional. (By the way, did you know that all IPI members can read the magazine online, even if they don't get a paper copy?
