Standard Parking Corporation (Nasdaq:STAN), one of the nation's leading providers of parking management, ground transportation and other ancillary services, announced several contract awards in the university and municipal markets by the University of Washington, the City of Fort Worth, Texas and the City of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Coupled with previously announced municipal contract awards to SP Plus Municipal Services (by Miami Beach, Florida and Chelsea, Massachusetts) and university contract awards to SP Plus University Services (by Emory University and Sinclair Community College), the wins reflect the continuing penetration of the Company's SP Plus brand.

The City of Fort Worth, Texas selected the Company's SP Plus Maintenance service line to provide and install a state-of-the-art Parking Access and Revenue Control System. The $1.5 million project will modernize the parking experience at the historic Will Rogers Memorial Center complex, a multi-purpose entertainment complex spread over 85 acres in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District that hosts 2.5 million visitors at a variety of events each year.
