How to use Chaser Tickets and QR Codes When Exiting the Garages

Upon exiting

Only 1 Chaser Ticket or QR code may be used to exit.

  • First feed the gate ticket taken upon entry in to the slot. The amount due will be shown.
  • Next, feed the Chaser Ticket into the same slot or scan your QR code. The Chaser Ticket value will either cover the transaction cost and lift the gate or indicate the balance remaining to be paid with a credit card.
  • Attempting to use an additional validation will result in a “Discount Is Not Accepted” message. Only 1 Chaser Ticket may be used to exit.

Please note

Once a Chaser Ticket has been processed, it is no longer valid and cannot be reused or backed out of the system.
