Limousine Drop-Off / Pick-Up Tips

Limousines may drop-off and pick-up their customers in the valet drop-off area situated at Dodge Gate for a fee of $40. Pay the cashier in cash only the night of the event or purchase in advance, a package of 20 limousine passes from the Vinci Park office. These can be paid by company cheque or by cash.

Drivers will drop off their customers at Dodge Gate. Once the passengers are dropped off, the drivers may not remain at Dodge Gate. They will then proceed to the booth at lot 2. (Cyclone Taylor and Huntmar) and pay the cashier a fee of $40. Immediately to the right of the booth, drivers will notice nine double parking spaces. The first limousine to arrive MUST park at the back of those spaces to allow room for all limousines. Limousine drivers who do not wish to stay for the duration of the event must still enter through Lot 2 and pay a fee of $40 upon their return and park in one of the spaces provided for you. All limousine parking spaces are available on a first come first served basis.

Vinci Park will supply two employees with radios in order to call up the limousines when their customers arrive. Customers should be informed that they will need to approach the Vinci Park employee at the concierge desk located inside the second entrance of Dodge Gate. At this point the customers must give the limousine company name and driver’s name to ensure that the proper limousine is called up. Customers must only call up for their limousine when all the passengers are ready to be picked up. Once a limousine has been called up, the employee situated in the booth at Lot 2 will go inform the Driver that his customers are ready for pick-up. Only a limousine called up by a Vinci Park employee may precede to Dodge Gate. Customers MUST NOT call up the drivers on their cell phones for pick-up. Once a driver has been notified by a Vinci Park employee that he may go pick up his customers, he may proceed in the right hand lane following the fence on the south side of the lot. The drivers will then go up a ramp located to their right and proceed onto the interlock stone walkway. Drivers will then proceed on the access way until they arrive at Dodge Gate where they will greet and pick-up their customers. The driver will then exit with the rest of the valet customers. (Limousines MAY NOT stay on the access way for any extended period of time.)
