Deshka Landing installed a new 24/7 automated gate in November. If you have ever used a parking garage then you will recogize the setup. The equipment is the same as in the 5th Ave. garage in Anchorage.
Non-keycard holders will press the green circle button on the machine in the entrance lane. Take the ticket and proceed through the gate. DO NOT PARK YOUR VEHICLE IN THE ENTRANCE LANE TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE. Pay when you return from your outing at the exit lane, make sure to pull up in front of the machine. The machine calculates your time in the lot and it accepts Visa, Mastercard, and Cash. Prices are the same as the past two summers.
**IF YOU ARE PARKING A VEHICLE ONLY YOU NEED TO VALIDATE YOUR TICKET DURING OFFICE HOURS TO PAY THE $8.00/DAY PARKING RATE. IF YOU UTILIZE THE GATE AFTER HOURS THERE IS NO WAY TO VALIDATE YOUR TICKET AND THE PAY MACHINE ONLY HAS THE $25 LAUNCH RATE AVAILABLE.
We have been working the bugs out for the past 6 months. The system works well when all the hardware works. We have had some challenges, but everything is functioning correctly heading into the big weekend.
We look forward to seeing you in the upcoming weeks.
