I just talked to my rep. Everything is electronic, which is how they did parking and tickets for the ECF last year.So, are parking passes paper or electronic?? If they're electronic, this will be a giant cluster%$&#!
Just that out of the 7 home playoff games, there were at least 5 different entry scenarios for us at the West Premier entrance on Trinity Rd. (Parking vest dude at corner of Trinity who just waves us in, that dude not even there, dude is there and makes us stop and looks at my phone, dude is there and makes us stop and scans my phone and prints out a slip for me to hand to the parking vest dude in the lot, and then all that and the second dude doesn't want it, etc...) We got in the lot each game, but they got a long way to go to get their sh*t together on e-Parking... That was true for the playoffs last year as well, I didn't have any issues with the electronic parking pass (not sure how it worked out for everyone else).
I hear you man. My great fear is that they'll go to E Tix for State basketball and I'll have to manage all this crap for my parents. God help me if that's ever the case, because I might pack up and move to Montana.I will also note that there are those folks that don't do electronic tickets and managing accounts on computer well. One of those is in my house and there's no way our tix could ever be managed if I weren't here. So, my fresh out of college ticket rep said "I can explain it and walk everyone through it." Dude! If it were a matter of explaining it, it would have happened. It's expecting folks to retain new information and processes. It's a matter of expecting everyone to be computer savvy when they don't understand their phone's bluetooth, airplane mode, or when they're on their cell plan versus WiFi. Some folks in their 7th and 8th decade are just not going to grasp all these things. So, for one final year, we will be issued paper passes and tickets.
There is not, at least as per my ticket rep. I asked, if that is the case, then why was I able to find an FAQ on the Canes' website on how to transfer tickets to your card? He said, Oops. We'll have to take care of that. And they wonder why things don't go smoothly!!I think there is a process to transfer the tickets to the card so you don’t have to have your phone all the time.
There was last year but, per Brian’s article, that’s not an option this year. The cards are not embedded with NFC capabilities so they can’t be used. Any paper tickets have a chip embedded so they can be scanned too.There is not, at least as per my ticket rep.
