We’re now on part four of the Parking Preview for 2018-2019 blog series where we’re covering the major changes coming to Parking and Transportation next year. To catch up on the information released so far, please take a look at:
- Part 1: Overview of the major changes
- Part 2: An in-depth look at the new rates
- Part 3: Zone parking and new buying process
- Part 4: Outreach events
It’s important that everyone ask questions and understand their options for next year before they make decisions regarding their transportation plan.
We want to be as helpful as possible in answering these questions, so we’re hosting a range of outreach events in the upcoming weeks. After these events, permit sales for faculty and staff are scheduled to begin April 3 and permit waitlists for students are expected to open April 10.
Take a look at the events below and mark your calendar so that you don’t miss us!
