Be sure to take good care of your ticket, you must have your ticket to exit. Most parkers who are taking a train out of the area prefer to leave the ticket in their vehicle.

Make sure your vehicle is secure, & there are no visible valuables that can be seen through the windows. This is good advice no matter where you park a vehicle.

If you have a highly sensitive anti-theft car alarm system please have it adjusted, car alarms can drain your battery if sounding for days because of vibration within the parking deck.
