City Hall Car Park System To Be Fully Functional

October 11, 2018 | 9 Comments

City Hall Car Park has completed testing and has moved to a one-ticket system and the system will be fully functional for Monday, October 15th, the Corporation of Hamilton said today.

A spokesperson said, “As part of its continued initiative to upgrade the City’s main car parks, the City of Hamilton is pleased to advise that City Hall Car Park has completed testing and has moved to a one-ticket system.

“The system will be fully functional for Monday, October 15th. Motorists are advised that the ticket collected upon entry is the same ticket to be scanned for payment, validated and then used for exit.

“City Hall Car Park will continue to be a short-term lot at a rate of $2 per hour for up to three hours. Premium rates will apply to those motorists who park for more than three hours. All fees are clearly posted in the lot. Lost tickets will incur a fee of $75.00.”

“The City reminds the public that monthly permits can be purchased from the City for those commuters parking on a daily basis in the long-term car parks – Bull’s Head, Par-la-Ville and Elliott Street.

“The cost of the Bull’s Head permit is $100 and the Par-la-Ville permit is $400 and grants access to all three long-term lots. Permit holders are issued a swipe card for entry and exit instead of visiting the pay stations.

“Cavendish and King Street Car Parks will also be included in the Par-la-Ville permit once their barrier systems are installed. There is a portal on the City’s website where the public can apply directly online for the permits.”

Traffic Manager, Fred Richardson, commented, “We had a pretty seamless transition to the one-ticket system in No.1 Car Park and are hoping the same for City Hall Car Park.

“My team and I will be readily available and in the area on Monday to ensure the system is working as it should. We will be there to answer any questions and help those who may need assistance.”

    Thanks City Hall finally getting this in sync with #1 Car park.
    Note to City Hall here……the ladies’ bathroom at #1 carpark is in
    a disgraceful state today with unsightly small German cockroaches that need to be fumigated in the cubicles. Where are the cleaners?

      Still makes me laugh when I watch people trying to work out how to open a barrier. Such basic stuff, yet here we need an announcement and lessons.

      I bite my tongue so hard when cashiers give me a running commentary on how to use a chip & pin card. “Oh really, now I have to input my PIN where it says “input your PIN?” Gee, it’s not like the rest of the world hasn’t had that for 5 years.

        To be fair, shampoo bottle labels – all over the world – still instruct users to lathe , rinse, and repeat.

          Don’t forget frozen pizza box labels advising people to cook the pizza before eating.

        Maybe next time you can extend a helping hand to the person who is trying to work out how to open the barrier.

          Yeah, I could, but if they couldn’t be bothered to learn how to read in school, then they’re on their own. It isn’t rocket science.

    How much did it cost the CoH to fix this blunder? Another case of procuring a system without thinking of how it will be used by the ratepayer.
