To access the gated facilities, you may use all of the following interchangeably:
The annual permit or Aggie ID should be swiped top to bottom with the magstripe facing the right
If you use a transponder, the signal will be read by the antenna shown below:
Pulling too far forward towards the gate arm will prevent the gate from rising, since your access device will not be in the access range of the reader. Instead it will detect your vehicle is blocking the lane.
When approaching the lane, pull forward just far enough to get the front of the vehicle in line with the card swipe reader. If the gate does not open, slowly move a couple of inches forward until the driver’s window is in line with the card reader.
Following Other Vehicles
If your vehicle stops too close to the vehicle in front of you at the gate, it is possible for your device to open the gate for the vehicle in front of you. If this happens, your vehicle will be denied access when you approach the gate, since the reader has already granted your hands- free device access to the area.
