Service and Operational Updates Fall 2020
Transportation and Parking is implementing strategies for fall 2020 to optimize parking availability and manage resources.
Transportation and Parking uses virtual permits for parking across campus. Virtual permitting removes the need for physical hang tags, and instead, parking access is assigned and verified through license plate recognition (LPR).
