The Javits Center is launching a Trusted Driver Program for all contractors in December 2017, a new effort to increase the efficiency of the move-in and move-out process while enhancing security inside the property. Under this program, there will be an electronic time stamp of every driver entering the Javits Center campus, providing an extra layer of security that will allow the Javits Center to properly monitor all truck activity entering the campus.
In order to qualify for the Trusted Driver Program, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Possess a valid government-issued driver’s license
- Frequent the Javits Center on a regular basis
- Complete the application available online
- Receive sponsorship from a contractor, event organizer or Javits Center
- Adhere to the policies and procedures of the Javits Center
Approved drivers will receive unique credentials from the Javits Center, allowing them to swipe a multi-class card access reader located at the main entry point at West 39th Street and 12th Avenue. As a result, approved drivers will experience quicker access to the campus and loading docks.
All other vehicles will be required to stop at the checkpoint and provide a government issued driver’s license upon arrival. The license information will be scanned by our security team and interface with the existing security camera system. This new security procedure is in addition to the existing contractor check-in process through both storefront locations on 12th Ave.
