Questions About Parking and Transportation? Send Them Our Way
By Bob Browand
If you have questions about Parking and Transportation, we want to hear them.
Next week, we will be holding town hall gatherings for students, faculty and staff. During these events – which will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams – PTS staff will be answering questions submitted to us ahead of time. Then if time allows, we will also answer more questions from participants attending the town halls.
How to submit questions
If you have a question, you can submit it to us by fill out this short form. We will try to answer each and every one of them.
We host these events every fall and spring semester. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we held them in person, which gave us a chance to meet face-to-face with the UH community.
Changes for the fall semester
During the upcoming spring town halls, we plan to discuss numerous positive changes regarding campus parking that will be in effect for the start of the fall 2021 semester.
We will also address each of those changes in more detail here in the Word on the Street blog in the upcoming days and weeks. Among the changes that are planned is Zones for All, which will combine the student zones with the current faculty-staff ungated lots to form larger zones that students and faculty-staff both can use (provided, of course, that they have a valid parking permit for that particular zone).
The student permit registration process will also be changing. Instead of selecting their top parking permit preferences and then having to wait weeks to find out which one they were assigned, students will be able to pick their desired permit immediately from among those that have availability.
So make sure to attend a town hall to learn more, or check back with the Word on the Street blog in the coming weeks to learn more about these and other changes that are on the way!
