Airports Authority launches new parking system at Piarco
The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago launched a new, automated car parking payment system at Piarco International Airport's Public Car Park.
The new system, 'Park-in' features automated ticketing any payment kiosks and provides users with advanced technological solutions which contribute towards enriching the customer experience at their airport facilities.
The 'Park-in' system constitutes multiple entry and exit machines and payment kiosks. Patrons will benefit from a user-friendly interface and more efficient processing and payment system which allows for added convenience, safer transactions and reduced queuing.
Kiosks will issue tickets on entry, accept payments at the Atrium and scan validated tickets to permit exit. The new system will also integrate a new wayfinding/guidance component that consists of strategically placed solar-powered devices to indicate parking spots with designated zones.
The 'Park-in' experience can be completed in four steps:
1. Retrieve a ticket from the ENTRY LANE machine at the public car park by pressing the identified button.
2. Select a vacant parking spot by using the digital signage for guidance.
3. When ready to depart, proceed to pay using cash or card at any of the 'Pay on Foot' kiosks located at the Atrium. (Patrons have 20 minutes to exit the public car park from the time payment has been made).
4. Scan your ticket at the EXIT LANE machine to exit the Car Park.
Airports Authority has confirmed that the car park rates will remain the same, but the issuance of pre-paid monthly passes will be discontinued with the implementation of the new system.
