Ground Control Systems is Here to Stay
Evolving end-to-end bike and board parking solutions.
Ground Control Systems is one of Sacramento’s fastest growing companies. This year marks our 5th consecutive time on the Sacramento Business Journal’s List, and we have no plans of slowing down.
Our growth comes from passion. We have a burning desire to share our knowledge with everyone, and we mean everyone. Believe us, this is a lot of hard work. But this passion has created a culture we will never grow tired of.
Our product comes from innovation and our ability to apply it to an industry that has lost its way. We build solutions, not racks. We build for function first and form second. Brilliant? We think so.
The racks you see on campuses, in cities, and in commercial business settings were most likely designed more than 50 years ago. For many developers and planners, the decision-making process is driven by “what is” not “what can be”. This lack of awareness, combined with a cost overrun and budget constraints, has resulted in the continued installation of these outdated racks.
We take a different approach. Our parking solutions are designed for the user, by the user. It’s not about the cost for us. It’s about the experience.
So, what have we done since our last story was told? Everything. In addition to supplying parking solutions across the country, everywhere from the city of Davis to the University of Kentucky, we have also been busy receiving awards. The League of American Cyclists awarded Ground Control Systems as a “Platinum” level bicycle-friendly business, their highest honor. Very few companies can claim this title and we pride ourselves on standing alongside them. Awards like this are why we love what we do.
We are Innovators. We are advocates. We are Ground Control Systems™ the Bike and Board Parking Solution Experts.
The Ground Control Difference
Award Winning Design
Ground Control maintains the high level of excellence we established as Park A Bike, when we received the first ever American Society of Landscape Architects’ People's Choice Award for the design and function of the Varsity Bike Dock® and the SkateDock™.
