Hi Sabrina,

Regarding Ashfield station pre-booking, would the pre-booked spaces reflected as occupied spots in the car park APIs?

Thanks,
Mohamed

Great question! I’ll investigate and get back to you :slight_smile:

@Mohamed The pre-booked spots are carved out, so the answer is effectively yes, given the total available spots are reduced.

Thanks @sabrina.morgan for the clarification - it’s good that the total spots number is provided dynamically as part of the APIs :slight_smile:
