SFO parking will be more memorable

Don’t worry — it shouldn’t be that big a deal if that parking-garage location washes off your hand.

San Francisco International Airport recently installed ticket dispensers to help people remember where they left their cars. Parking Locator, the Granite Bay-based company that designed the ticket boxes, expects they will be especially helpful for travelers who leave their cars for a couple of days.

The airport has had even more people parking there since last June, when a new lot boosted the total number of long-term spaces by more than 800, according to airport data.

About the size of a small wallet photograph, the tickets are printed with the name of the lot, the level at which the car is parked and phone numbers for assistance in the event drivers are locked out or need a jump-start.

SFO has 7,653 hourly parking spaces and 4,205 long-term spots, according to airport data.
