City begins automation of parking garages

The City of Ithaca is beginning the process of automating its parking garages.

The Dryden Road garage is complete, and now customers will see the changes in the Seneca Street Garage.

Parking Director Frank Nagy has extended the hours of garage workers to help communicate and educate customers on how the new automated equipment operates, and how they can pay for parking prior to exiting the garages.

Nagy says the new system will help collect revenue lost when garage employees leave their posts at 8pm on the weekdays.

Parking will remain free from 8pm to 3am on weekdays, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
