Revenue Control

In this article the author provides a comparative analysis of different methods of parking payment, such as the traditional pay-on-exit, pay-on-foot, and pay-and-display. Pay-on-exit systems are typically less expensive systems as the hardware they require is less complicated than the other systems, and some operators prefer the human-based service they provide. Also, while long-term costs may be greater with pay-on-exit, they are not substantially greater than the other two systems and the immediate cost is less than half of pay-on-foot, according to the article. An automatic vehicle identification (AVI) can be used in concert with pay-on-exit, which allows for expedited exiting for monthly users. Operators also are designing their lots that are first built with pay-on-exit to be capable of being retrofitted for other payment schemes pending funding and customer demand.
