I am not sure that they caved to the season ticket holders who get parking anyway. I think they had an ill conceived plan that they had no idea how to manage...sound familiar?
I think they thought it would work well. I do like the $50 parking pass idea for the season. I pay whereever I go now...London, Plymouth, Saginaw, Kingtson, Ottawa. We have it good...but you can't charge after...i'd have to dig for change under my seat to pay it off...and jusT imagine the lineup then.
Personally, i am not sure Abercrombie's explanation to pay off parking lot maintenance flew...considering it snowed how many times last year?
I would rather have the $2 go to a charity, or to the college.
Businessmen without a business plan is like driving on a quarter tank.
