Lincoln Airport to Install New Parking Equipment

LINCOLN, Neb., March 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lincoln Airport Authority announces the upcoming installation of a new Parking and Revenue Control System (PARCS) at the Lincoln Airport. The new equipment, which includes new ticket dispensers, revenue control/point of purchase equipment, and automated exit lanes, will be managed by SP+ Airport Services, under contract with the Lincoln Airport Authority.

“Our parking equipment was showing its age and needed to be replaced for a number of reasons, including reduced reliability and difficulty getting replacement parts,” said David Haring, Airport Executive Director. “With more passengers using the Lincoln Airport, we have more vehicles trying to exit the parking lot at the same time. We expect the new equipment to greatly improve the parking experience at the airport.”

Parking customers paying cash will still use the cashier lane, which will also allow alternate forms of payment. Debit/credit card customers and corporate clients will be able to use up to three automated lanes to exit the parking lots.

Features of the new system will include:

  • Faster Transaction speed which translates to reduced wait times.
  • More payment options including corporate charge accounts and prepaid accounts.
  • Maximum Exit Lanes available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
  • Click and Park - Advanced Reservations for premium spaces in the garage.
  • More secure credit card transactions.

“We are extremely excited with the new equipment and additional exit lanes, which will offer travelers an improved experience,” stated John D. Conway, Vice President at SP+.

Completion is expected in March of 2016.
