COVID's Impact on Transportation in the UK with Anthony Eskinazi

  • At the start of COVID, the UK government enacted a congestion charge, charging commuters 15 GBP ($19 USD) to drive into the city

  • At the height of the pandemic: -90% of parking volume YoY

  • There are behavioral differences per region: Canary Wharf is pretty much a 'ghost town', parking revenue is down 65-75% YoY. Whereas the West End is only down 10-20% as more people have returned to the office

  • Current state: Overall, parking volume is 20-30% lower YoY

  • As of August, JustPark started to see YoY growth. Since there has been a significant transition from public transportation to private vehicles, more commuters are leveraging online sales channels to guarantee their parking
