In response to my comment below about automated parking in Boston, someone asked:
Just Curious: What happens if someone loses their ticket — how do they find the cars?
Never considered that issue. Of course in contract only locations like Hoboken, its not a problem since they can search the computer system for the person’s card number and recall it manually. But what happens in an automated daily facility.
I come up the the garage for the first time, get a ticket, which is, I suppose, connected to my car and where it is in the garage. I leave, lost the ticket, and come back two hours later. Now what?
Anybody got a clue?
