Best Of 2013 • IndyPick: Place to Have a Dead Battery
By the time the jet's tires smacked the tarmac in the Springs it was late, and waiting for me in the snow drifts in long-term parking was a dead battery. But when summoned via phone at a shuttle-stop shelter, two friendly workers with a jump box buzzed out, resuscitated the battery and sent me on my way. The airport's parking contractor, ABM, is equipped to provide free jump-starts, air, and a gallon of gas to anyone in need. "ABM Parking has been with us for the past nine years," said assistant aviation director John McGinley. "We are very pleased with their performance and attention to our customers." — Mary Jo Meade
