A tandem parking space is a shared parking space. Typically, two vehicles are parked behind each other. One vehicle has to move in order for the other vehicle to get out his or her space. Tandem spaces are usually found in alleys or driveways.
Some tandem spaces parking tenants swap keys with each other. This way each parking tenant can get in and out of their space efficiently.
In other tandem parking space situations, tenants have a specific schedule to go by. It’s designed around what time each driver needs to be in or out. For example, if one parking tenant needs to be in 8 am and out by 6 pm, that gives the evening person parking there the opportunity to roll in by 6pm and vacant the spot by before 8am. This gives twenty-four-hour efficient use of the parking space. This is often done between businesses and tenants who just need overnight parking but then head to work each day Monday through Friday. That way they don’t have to look for an evening parking spot and the business saves money as well by splitting costs.
Many driver’s rent tandem spaces only for commuter hours, 9-5, this way no one has to switch keys or create a schedule, as they’d be coming in and going out at the same time.
Roommates tend to rent tandem space frequently as well. Because all of the driver’s live in one home and it’s easy to move one car to let another car out. Those who are looking to store their vehicles for the winter or seasonally work well with tandem spaces as well. This is because the car doesn’t have to be moved on a daily basis, thus keys don’t have to be switched nor does a schedule need to be arranged.
