Every five years Transportation & Parking develops a new plan to generate the revenue necessary to cover expenses, including:

  • The cost of Chapel Hill Transit and other regional access for commuters
  • Technology and other service improvements that support campus safety and sustainability, reduce cost and increase revenue
  • Enhancements, like a new bike sharing program and a parking access revenue control system for improved operations
Nationally recognized consultants, Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc., provided guidance and analysis for the Transportation & Parking Five-Year Plan, while the campus-wide representatives on the Advisory Committee on Transportation & Parking (ACT) provided input during the year-long planning process. ACT members and other campus community members will continue to be involved in discussions about implementation plans and progress over the next five years.

Did You Know?

Like other critical campus functions, Transportation & Parking is a receipt-supported enterprise. Revenue comes from parking permit and visitor parking fees. The University receives no state appropriations for parking facilities. Under state law, UNC campuses must return fines collected for parking tickets – after reconciling collection service expenses – to support North Carolina’s public schools.
