New Parking Garage Ticket Process
The MAT Parking garage, located directly across the street from the Cathedral, has just finished installing new equipment for processing their parking tickets. Therefore, effective immediately, Christ Church Cathedral will no longer be stamping tickets from the garage.
The new process is as follows:
-As you enter the garage, you will take a ticket from the machine, as usual.
-Upon arriving at the Cathedral, there will be designated people who have a second type of ticket that you must also have. The second ticket, called a chaser ticket, has a square black barcode on it. The chaser ticket is what determines the price that the Cathedral will get charged.
-There are three exits from the garage. Two are on the Chapel Street side and one is on the Church Street side. The only parking attendant will be on the Church Street side. The easiest way to process your two parking tickets (one from the machine as you came in and one chaser) is to give them both to the attendant at the Church Street exit. Regular attendant hours are Monday through Friday 6:30 am until 11:00 pm and Saturday through Sunday 8:00 am until 11 pm.
PLEASE NOTE: THE GARAGE IS CLOSED TO THE CATHEDRAL ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS UNTIL AFTER LABOR DAY. THIS IS TRUE EVEN IF THE GARAGE IS OPEN FOR OTHER PURPOSES SUCH AS HARTFORD STAGE. IF YOU PARK THERE DURING OFF TIMES, YOU WILL BE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING YOUR PARKING TICKET AND NO CHASER TICKET WILL BE AVAILABLE. WITHOUT THE CHASER TICKET, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FULL PRICE.
-If you choose to use one of the exits on the Chapel side, with no attendant, the exit process is as follows:
- First, take the ticket that you received upon entering the garage and slide it into the exit machine where it says Ticket Only. The arrows on the ticket will show you which way to slide it in.
-Second, take the chaser ticket that you received at the Cathedral and scan it into the exit machine where it says Scan Barcode. After scanning the chaser ticket, you can dispose of it at home.
-You can now exit the garage.
