Los Angeles International Airport is now using a cashierless payment system for Parking Structures 3 and 4, which are the garages closest to the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
Officials with Los Angeles World Airports said it marks the first use of an automated payment collection system at LAX.
Customers exiting Parking Structures 3 and 4 will pay their parking fees by credit or debit card using new exit lanes. Cashier booths will no longer be available at those two structures, but during the transition to the new system, attendants will be available at the exits to accept cash, according to LAWA officials.
Starting next month, travelers will be able to pay by cash or card at “pay-on-foot” machines inside the two garages.
“At LAX, one of our four strategic goals is to innovate for safety, security and efficiency, and the new automated payment systems at P3 and P4 will help us do just that,” said Keith Wilschetz, deputy executive director of operations and emergency management for Los Angeles World Airports. “This new parking payment system, which will improve the guest experience by speeding up transactions and reducing wait times, is just one more way that LAWA is bringing in technology and improving our systems to create a more efficient travel experience at LAX.”
A similar system was also unveiled at Economy Lot E.
