Examples - Scramble Parking

The following examples explain what is and is not considered scramble parking.

Example 1

Scramble parking

  • Where there are 35 parking spots and 60 employees who want parking.

Example 2

Not scramble parking

  • There are enough parking spaces for all employees who want a parking space on a daily basis but it is "unassigned parking", meaning employees are not assigned to a particular parking space.
  • There are 50 parking spots and 52 employees wanting parking. Therefore, most employees will find a parking spot every day.
  • There are 100 employees and 75 parking spots. All employees are provided with a parking pass but 30 employees do not drive to work. Therefore, only 70 employees want parking spots on a daily basis.
  • There are 400 parking spots and 600 employees wanting parking. The business runs 3 equal shifts over a 24 hour period. Therefore, not all employees want parking at the same time.
  • An annual company-wide meeting results in a significant number of employees being unable to find parking on the day of the meeting due to the attendance of teleworkers and shiftworkers, but on regular workdays, most employees are able to find a parking spot.
