Parking and Access Services Updates

Service Updates

As the situation with COVID-19 evolves day-to-day, our top priority during these challenging times continues to be the health and safety of our co-workers, customers and communities.

Our communities are working hard to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and to support these efforts the Access desk is closed to customers until further notice to support social distancing efforts and based on recommendations from local health authorities. Our Customer Support Team is now working on reduced hours of operation from 8 AM – 4 PM ET, Monday-Friday. Given the current situation, our Customer Support Team is experiencing higher than usual contact volumes and we appreciate your patience on wait times for phone and email contacts.

Key returns will be processed for refund within 14 days.
