      Hello, thank you for pointing this out!

        RTC still charging to park? How long will these restaurants stay there?

    BPX paid parking will ensure any new business openiing in RTC will fail

    • JMH

      I despise BPX for ruining RTC’s reputation with the parking scandal, but your take is stale. The new rules make it so I never have to pay for parking or download the app, and I go to RTC quite regularly.

      The only time it’s a pain is when you want to stay longer than 2 hours on a weekday before 4pm (rare for most who work elsewhere). But its pretty easy to run to the garage kiosk and punch your license plate into the machine again for another free hour.

  • Why do you bother?

    Only two (see above) in RTC – Good trend! I’m delighted to have more non-RTC places to eat!

    Still waiting for The Tortilla Factory to reopen. Oh well…
