To use the elevator at this Portland parking garage, you have to call security to get them to let unlock the doors.
This is my first time encountering this and I hate it. I think its purposefully inconvenient to encourage walking or something, but they made it so inconvenient that I had to stand around for minutes waiting for someone to let me into the elevator. Most people who need an elevator, including me, don’t do well with standing but don’t use a wheelchair.
They said we had to call again to be let in to come back down.
There’s no call button at the top.
I was not about to use stairs.
I was stranded until I sent a family member down the stairs to use the call button at the bottom.
That’s not accessible. If you have to rely on an employee and an assistant to access an elevator, but the stairs can be used freely and independently, that’s not accessible.
