Spotted on the Strip: MGM's transition to paid parking

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Visitors to MGM Resorts International properties on the Las Vegas Strip may have noticed the company's transition to paid parking is well underway.

At New York New York Hotel & Casino, ticketing booths can be seen at the entrance to the parking garage.

Payment kiosks are also set up in the area where guests make their way to the parking garage from inside the casino.

Several floors of the parking garage already have sensors over each space which light up green to alert drivers if they're open and turn red when they're occupied. It's the same type of system used in the underground parking garage of The Cosmopolitan.

There are also new lights that turn on when drivers walk to their cars helping to illuminate normally dark areas in the garage. When MGM announced plans to charge for parking in January, one of the reasons was to provide better, safer parking for visitors.

Starting in the second quarter, most of the casino giant's properties will charge $10 or less for overnight self-parking. They are: Mandalay Bay, Delano, Luxor, Excalibur, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Vdara, Aria, Bellagio, the Mirage and MGM Grand.
