The City of West Hollywood is using automated parking to fit more vehicles into a garage. It's neat, but I wish Los Angeles would use its resources for better public transportation.
The garage requires a much smaller physical footprint than would a conventional parking structure with a similar capacity. The space savings nets more than 7,000 square feet for a Community Plaza and entry service area that will be used for community events. The Automated Garage will help to answer the City's need for parking for City Hall and for surrounding businesses.
Parking your vehicle is as simple as driving in to the bay, pulling a ticket and walking away. The maximum vehicle retrieval time for an individual car is approximately two minutes. The automated garage has multiple lifts and shuttles that can move many vehicles at once.
