I parked at Park ‘N Fly SFO last week for my trip to the UK. Driving by FastTrack to get there was somewhat of an odd experience, as that lot had always been completely full. Now it’s one big huge empty lot. However, there were maybe fifteen cars on the lot, which I did find humorous. When FastTrack announced they were closing, they mentioned that you had two weeks to get your car out of the lot. I always wondered what would happen to those who had parked for an extended period of time! Perhaps they take the Park N Fly bus to the lot, walk over to FastTrack, and call security to open the gate? Or just go break the gate and drive out? Who knows… I hope a new parking company comes to fill the void there, though, because the overflow is really hitting Park ‘N Fly SFO, FastTrack’s neighbor, pretty hard!
I could not believe how many cars were in there. EVERY row in the lot has an extra row of cars parallel parked behind one of the rows, boxing the first row in. I went to look for a spot, and I did my best to find a non parallel parked spot, as I didn’t want them to have to move my car for me. I found one.
When I returned to my car, I was dreading how long it would take for them to find the keys for the car behind me and move that car. Fortunately, this was very quick. I actually have to give major kudos to Park ‘N Fly for being so well organized. I’m not sure where they stored the keys or how fast the driver had to run to get them, but the car behind me was being moved by the time I was done unloading luggage into the truck.
As I drove away, I noticed the sign hanging on the FastTrack lot. Can someone please lease this property so the parking at SFO can be returned to equilibrium?!?!
