At the advisement of DPS and Homeland Security, GBA requires all vehicles to display a parking hangtag when parked in GBA facilities. Displaying the hangtag assists parking staff and law enforcement in recognizing authorized vehicles. When a vehicle does not display a hangtag, it is a security risk as it cannot be quickly identified.
If there is a forgotten parking hangtag, customers will need to park in the Pete Hackney facility, pay the daily fee, and make sure the receipt is clearly displayed on the dash of their vehicle. The Pete Hackney facility is located at 162 Jesse Hill Jr. Drive SE, Atlanta, GA 30303. Customers may also choose a private parking facility.
The renewal process is an annual audit of the parking records. Customers may review/edit contact information such as your phone number, email address, license plate data and waitlist selections. This information helps us contact customers in case of an emergency or other scenario (flat tire, car accident, lights on, or etc.).
In an effort to increase the safety and security on Capitol Hill as recommended by Homeland Security, GBA has begun upgrading the parking lot technology to a format different from the one used for building access cards. GBA policy states that each vehicle must display a parking hangtag while parked on state property to indicate the responsible person for the vehicle. The hangtag must stay with the vehicle and the building access card must stay with the person.
Multiple hangtags issued to customers would allow more vehicles in a parking facility beyond the facility’s available capacity. In addition to enforcement and customer services issues, this could potentially result in hazardous conditions due to congested entry/exit lanes.
Permit only lanes have been designated at the rear entrance of Pete Hackney off Decatur Street. Public Safety has recommended against an employee entrance only lane at the Jesse Hill Jr. Drive as it would increase accident risks from vehicles having to change lanes.
In an effort to improve service and to help educate customers, citations are written as warnings, rather than fines. However, habitual violators that accumulate four citations in one fiscal year may be subject to having their parking suspended or cancelled.
Each parking facility has a sign at the entrance of the facility identifying the maximum clearance height within the facility. Each facility height is also published on the GBA parking website at www.gba.ga.gov/parking-services.
For energy conservation, light-emitting diode (LED) lights were installed in parking facilities. There are motion sensors in the drive lanes that regulate the LEDs during low light hours, and in parking spaces as needed.
The Hertz Rental contract is with the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS). When a customer rents a vehicle on Capitol Hill, Hertz Rental may provide their customer with a place to leave a vehicle. If parking in the Pete Hackney deck, all vehicles must display a receipt for payment and/or a prepaid coupon from Hertz for each day the vehicle is parked. Weekends (Saturdays and Sundays only) and state holidays do not require daily coupons since the parking facility is closed.
