The parking lots located in the La Carolina park, north of Quito, will extend their opening hours this Wednesday, October 5, due to the concert by reggaeton singer Daddy Yankee, which will take place at the Atahualpa Olympic Stadium.
Drivers will be able to park their vehicles until 00:00, reported the Metropolitan Public Company for Mobility and Public Works (Epmmop). Normally, the service ends at 10:00 p.m., but for this occasion the Municipality decided to increase hours, since thousands of spectators are expected to attend the urban music show.

The Epmmop gives several recommendations for users: remove the ticket and keep it in a safe place, prevent the paper from breaking and liquids from spilling. For the loss or damage of the voucher, the driver will have to pay $15.
As a security measure, the entity reminds users to check the car when getting off, verify that doors and windows are closed, and avoid leaving valuables. “The Epmmop is not responsible for the care of the vehicles or belongings left in them,” the municipal company clarified in a statement.
