Every five years, Transportation and Parking partners with representatives from across campus to evaluate the existing campus transportation and parking operations and develop a five-year plan to address the future needs of the University and UNC Health.

The process for developing the next Five-Year Plan is under way, and Transportation and Parking Executive Director Cheryl Stout recommends that anyone interested in the process and recommendations for the next 5-Year Plan (2023-2028) visit the website.  “We rely heavily on our campus partners who support this process by serving on the Advisory Committee on Transportation and Parking (ACT),” said Stout. “Our ACT members include folks from Student Affairs, Athletics, Employee Forum, Student Government, Post-docs, and the School of Medicine, among others. With their input and support, we can develop our short- and long-term objectives.”

Stout reinforces the importance of campus input on the planning process by adding that they also get feedback via town halls, survey, and focus groups. In addition, any campus member can submit questions or comments at the form on their website.

The Five-Year Plan has four main goals, according to Stout:

  • Engage with the University community through outreach efforts.
  • Evaluate existing operations and technology and identify future efficiencies and opportunities.
  • Develop strategies to address University and UNC Health development and programmatic growth.
  • Ensure that necessary revenue is in place to support existing and near-term transportation system costs.

The process will culminate in May with a presentation for approval to the UNC Board of Trustees, and information about changes on campus will be shared on the Transportation and Parking website.

Transportation and Parking is a receipt-supported enterprise that is dependent on parking and transportation fees. By law, fine revenues, excluding a 20% allowance for operating costs, are transferred to the State of North Carolina for K-12 funding. In addition, the University’s transportation system relies heavily on local transit to provide access to campus. As a partner in the Chapel Hill Transit system with the Town of Chapel Hill and the Town of Carrboro, UNC-Chapel Hill is responsible for 100% of the cost associated with UNC-Chapel Hill fully allocated routes and over one third of the cost of shared routes.
