The Balboa Park Free Tram System, hosted by Ace Parking, recently started running in San Diego. Each of these commuter cars can transport around 100 passengers and the enclosed power units and trailers can add around 40 more. Stopping at several stops, this new transportation choice will be a popular one with both tourists and residents.
Ace Parking has long been known for their advancements in the transportation and parking world. Since beginning operations in 1950, it has grown from just the San Diego area to coast to coast. Over 450 locations across the United States are managed from the headquarters in San Diego, which adds up to over $369 million in revenue. Ace Parking services around 200,000 clients per day around the country and is one of the largest, privately owned parking companies in the United States.
Mr. Keith B. Jones, the Managing Partner and Principal of Ace Parking, stated, “being based in San Diego, we are happy and privileged to offer our valuable experience as well as serve as goodwill ambassadors to this city’s visitors, not to forget the local residents who visit the park.” He feels that it is a great honor to offer this service to the city that they got their start.
