My experience relates to paid car parking at Townsville Hospital. My wife and I came early to have a blood test. On arrival we took a ticket from the machine and on exit went to pay and chose a $10 seven day pass as we knew we would be making multiple visits over several days. On coming back the same day we re-entered car park and we took another ticket, as we did not know how the system worked. On getting into the foyer we saw a parking officer by the ticketing machine. After waiting for this person to finish talking to what it turned out to be a 'friend' for 10 minutes, we finally had to 'butt in' to get advice on how to use our seven day pass. The information was gladly given and explained but my 'gripe' is that there were no instructions on or around the ticketing machine or anywhere on the ticket as to how to use it! Surely a sign could be erected to explain this? Trust something will be done to correct this situation for future users.
