Your Dollars At Work
Ticket Booth Expansion and Renovation
We are in the process of enlarging the ticket booth so that we can add a third service window. You can see from the pictures below how crowded the current booth is - and we've partially emptied it out for the work already in progress! The extra window will help reduce wait times for visitors which will be especially appreciated during intense heat, rainy weather, or that occasional cool, blustery day.
Besides making it slightly larger, we are adding interior and exterior security cameras as well as installing a fiber optic cable to connect the ticket booth with the Headquarters building. This will allow us to reduce the amount of servers and associated equipment needed to manage our network.
All of this may not sound exciting but it is designed to protect our visitors and employees, reduce our operating costs, and enable us to be more efficient in our work.
