International Parking & Mobility Institute



2024 IPMI
Awards of Excellence

20 projects recognized for creativity and innovation in the 2024 IPMI Awards of Excellence program.

One of the most thrilling aspects of the IPMI Awards of Excellence program is that the 49 submissions we received all share a key attribute: each is a testament to the passion, integrity, and imagination of those whose professions intersect in a meaningful way with the parking and mobility community. The high quality of the entries presented a daunting challenge to the 17 volunteer judges from member organizations who were tasked with identifying the best of the best. Nearly as difficult was deciding which of the most outstanding submissions would earn the top-tier Apex Award or receive an Honorable Mention.

The Apex Award recognizes projects or programs with significant industry impact, and which set an exemplary standard for their creativity, effectiveness, and achievements. Ten submissions emerged to win this top honor in eight different categories, each demonstrating unique approaches to design, operational, environmental, economic, or societal factors. In some cases, it was all of the above.

Notably, ten projects were also recognized with an Honorable Mention, a testament to their significant impact on local and regional levels. These initiatives, spread across five categories, have all shared a common goal: to enhance the parking and mobility experience for the public. Whether at an airport, a cruise ship terminal, or in a city’s downtown core, these projects have made a difference in their respective communities.

At IPMI, we are deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn about these inspirational projects and programs. We are honored to showcase their impact on the lives of travelers, drivers, pedestrians, institutions, and businesses across the country. To all those who continue to push the boundaries of parking and mobility solutions, we extend our heartfelt thanks.
