"There was an "issue" with the scan of my bar code when I arrived (& others were also in the Poetry Garage office working with the Staff as no "paid" ticket automatically provided by the machine and we had to push for a "regular ticket) but it was handled quite well by Staff, seemingly for everyone, although It seemed to slow the exit Post-Opera: as many of us had to call Assistance to be let out without double-paying."
"PARKING WAS perfect. height restriction was known about, plenty of parking, great price, easy in and out. couldn't be easier."
"We did not have to wait in line after the opera and were able to exit easily and promptly. Highly recommend this garage to those attending the Lyric Opera."
"This was the quickest we have ever left an event downtown. Being able to go straight to our car and tot having to wait at the payment machine was terrific. I would recommend this to everyone - as a matter of fact - I already have at my place of employment."
"I couldnt get into the parking lot because I was 3 minutes late and the scan code was invalid until 7:00 exactly. I just took a ticket, and when I was exiting, the security person did help me get out with my printed receipt, but I worried the entire time I was at the play that I was going to have to pay double."
