Boxcar, a parking reservation company designed for commuters, has found an open spot in Newark.
The company was welcomed by Topology last month as the first tenant of its new “re:SOLVE Workshop,” an expanded and renovated office space at the Dietze Building on Union Street.
Founded in 2017 by Joseph Colangelo, Boxcar provides on-demand parking spaces that are reservable in advance via its mobile app, guaranteeing an available spot for commuters. It also offers luxury motor coach services to Midtown Manhattan and the East and West sides of New York City from select town centers. The buses also provide Wi-Fi and power outlets for riders.
Its new satellite office at the re:SOLVE Workshop, however, is not Boxcar’s only location in New Jersey. The company maintains its base of operations in Chatham.
Planning firm Topology’s CEO, Phil Abramson, and chief operating officer, Annie Hindenlang, expressed their enthusiasm in collaborating with Boxcar.
“We are beyond thrilled to be bringing together innovators while at the same time helping to support the burgeoning Newark urban tech community,” Abramson said. “Boxcar really fits the mold of our vision here at Topology and we hope this is just the beginning of our relationship.”
Similarly, Boxcar’s Colangelo said the move to Topology’s building in Newark is “more than just an office, it’s a partnership.”
Topology aims to bring like-minded entrepreneurs together, hoping to foster collaboration and information sharing that breaks down barriers between disciplines by launching the “re:SOLVE Workshop.” This specific collaboration with Boxcar is working to provide solutions for the commuting problems facing the Newark community. Topology is selectively targeting partners whose missions complement, expand or enhance each tenant’s final product.
