gophergreen417 0 Posted June 20, 2008 Share #1 Posted June 20, 2008 Hi everyone, does anyone have the same issues with the NJ Transit parking management vendor (Park America) that I'm having? Some of the deficiencies are bordering on dangerous. But I not just complaining, I'll provide recommendation to resolve these issues in future posts. Here are just a few of my major beefs I have with the parking situation where I get on the NJ Transit train bound for Hoboken: - cars park side by side, next to each other, perpindicular to the tracks. Riders have to walk from their cars to the train station in front of all the other parked cars. This is very dangerous as it puts riders in the direct path of drivers parking their cars or, at the end of the day, drivers speedily pulling out of their spaces. - the lighting in the parking area is terrible, mostly relies on sparse street lighting which is dim at best. - when you apply for the quarterly permit, there's no way to find out where you are on the waiting list. An applicant has to constantly call to get updates. In the meantime I can see there are many open spaces (perhaps 10-15 open spaces) that could be filled by paying customers. - people waiting for their quarterly permit have to pay everyday to park, but there's no receipt to prove you paid. When I called Park America to see how someone could get a receipt, they only recommended that I write a check. I don't think my bank would appreciate 20 to 25 three dollar checks every month. There are quite a few other issues I have with how this business is being managed and some good solutions too.... but I'll save them for other posts. If you have any suggestions or you are experiencing the same problems... please let me know. I'm only looking to make things better for everyone. Good luck, gophergreen417 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
