Rear Tram people were in charge of asking where people parked but we definitely had a planned out pick up/drop off areas. You wouldn't know it unless you were a regular or CM.
Rainy Days in the old lot stunk. You'd have to wear this ugly plastic orange rain coat, pants and sometimes plastic on your shoes. It'd get hot but you couldn't change or get soaked. Especially being a Rear Tram person. But it could be fun, we used to "cone ski" on slow days.
The new lot is much nicer and much more convenient. I personally think it is a much better and easier system than the old lot.
