Just in time for the Christmas rush, SM opened its first intelligent car park located at the Bank Drive in SM Megamall.
The new facility will not only add 107 parking slots, but will also give mallgoers an easy, secure, and efficient shopping at SM by lessening parking time from 20-30 minutes to 3 minutes. The new car park system is expected to ease traffic caused by motorists looking for parking spaces.
More than that, SM Intelligent Car Park has a low environmental impact and minimal disruption of its natural surrounding landscape. The car park is 100 percent Japanese-designed and Japanese-made, in partnership with Park Solutions Inc., a subsidiary of Oroza Group of Companies.
The automated car park offers convenience as it is very easy to use. The driver needs to go to the booth near the car park, have their car measured, park in the multi-level car park entry, and get the ticket to claim the car later.
The machine then lifts the car to an available space. When claiming the car, the driver will just wait for a couple of minutes for the machine to bring it down. Vending machines are also available at the carpark.
SM Intelligent Car Park is open every day from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Parking fee is P70 for the first four hours and P20 for every succeeding hour.
