Airport parking and exit - CPT INTL - Help.
« on: February 10, 2020, 05:26:03 pm »
Hi All

There used to be an extensive bike parking area and an easy no pay escape over the zebra crossing. I arrived on Sunday and its all changed.

After a couple of circuits I found the new bike parking opposite the pick up area. Question is how do we get out of there now...??

Anybody figured it out? Otherwise I'm in for a couple of days parking fee..

I parked in the usual spot ground floor P2, one of the attendants told me to go back out the entrance when I left

Where's the back entrance?

I usually park across from the Uber pick up spot and then piggy-back onto an exiting Uber. Been doing that for years!

I found a half fenced spot where lots of Uber drivers were standing so I went out there drove up the ramp for 15 meters, did a U turn and lined up at the boom. Turns out that's the boom where you put your paid ticket in...

The middle boom was lying on the ground after a vehicle pushed it over some time earlier.

On the side was a taxi that had lost his ticket and there was much discussion with an official. At the same time I am now parked in with a vehicle behind me. the oak in front had a problem with his ticket and the the others followed suit so they had to open the booms manually. I just drew a straight line and got out of there when they opened the broken boom - lucky.

I need to figure it out properly for next time.

Teebag, When you go back out the entrance where do you end up?
