Suggestions for a speedier exit:

  • Carpool to the event.
  • Allow extra time and park on the street and walk to the Red Lion Hotel (Check out the Passport Parking App and pay the meter on your Apple or Android phone).
  • Consider parking in the Green (PAC) ramp. It also has a skywalk to the hotel and has four exits, opposed to the two exits in the Red (Red Lion Hotel) ramp.
  • If parking in the ramp:
    • Pay for your parking at the walk up kiosk before exiting the ramp.
    • Pay by credit card as you exit. It is much faster than cash.
  • The more people that pay at the pay-on-foot machines or use credit cards at the exits, the faster everyone will get out of the ramps.
