Twenty years ago, Cape Elizabeth resident Tom Toye III, owner of Park’N Jet at 1000 Westbrook Street, Portland, had a thriving parking and car rental business on the same 4 acres he owns at the Jetport today.

During the past decade, he leased the space to three large car rental operations and watched the parking service decline while the Jetport grew, and thought there was a real missed opportunity to provide services he knew travelers wanted. So, Toye came out of retirement and re-opened the business last month.

According to Toye, “I have followed the airport expansion and growth and believe now more than ever that those 1.7 million people that fly to and from Portland each year need this service. Today, everybody, including business travelers, is looking to save money and time while expecting a superior customer experience.”

Park’N Jet charges $10 per day, $2 less than the public parking facility, and is open seven days a week, from 5 a.m. until last flight. Travelers drive to their check-in building next to the public parking garage, drop their keys off to the attendant who parks the car for them, take a 2-minute shuttle to the terminal, and when they return they text, call or use the courtesy phone to get picked up. Their car is waiting, warmed up and snow is removed. If they selected to get their car serviced, that’s done, too.
