One of the new "no-attendant" parking machines at Reagan National Airport, which were activated this past weekend. 

Travelers at Reagan National Airport will now find a new automated parking system with more choices to pay for parking, according to the Associated Press. 

The airport has started offering automated pre-payment machines for parking as travelers leave the airport terminal, officials say. The machines help get cars out of parking lots faster by replacing staffed ticket booths which can sometime slow the process. 

The airport also is offering ticketless parking transactions, which could help travelers who lose their parking tickets. 

Under the new system, travelers can insert their credit cards at the gate when they enter a parking garage. The system records the time of the driver's entry. Then when they leave the airport, they can insert the same credit card to pay for parking.
