Policy for Transient (Hourly) Parking

“Transient parking” is defined as customers who pay by the hour to park in any of the Autoparks. 

A “refund” is any funds given back to a customer whether in the form of cash, check, or credit card return.

  • All refund requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests must be made within seven days of occurrence. Requests made after seven days will not be considered.
  • Requests must be made in writing and addressed to the WPA Assistant Director. A receipt must be presented at the time of refund request.
  • It is the requestor’s duty to ensure delivery of the request for a refund. If a request has not been received by the WPA within seven days of the occurrence, it will not be considered.
  • Where it is determined that a request for a refund has been made as a result of an occurrence arising from customer user error, it will not be considered for the issuance of a refund.
  • Refunds requested by a customer for their hourly parking will be considered only if there is suspicion or proof of equipment malfunction or failure.
  • All refund decisions will be made at the sole discretion of the WPA Assistant Director after review of the request, which decision shall be final and unappealable. The occurrence will be investigated through the use of surveillance video and our computer system where available.
