Metered parking changing around campus
Friday, March 1, 2019
Metered parking is changing around campus as part of the new meter master plan that gives customers more options. In some areas, meter heads were removed and a pay station installed. In other areas, coin-only meters were removed and replaced with pay-by-phone only options. Download the MobileNOW app for free.
There are existing credit card meters that will remain and still accept coins and credit cards. Bills eventually will only be accepted in garages.
The meters are designed for short-term parking, allowing customers a place to quickly park and run into a facility to handle brief business. The meters range in prices from $2.50 to $3.75 per hour and have maximum parking times of 30 minutes, 90 minutes, or three hours depending on the location. See the map.
For customers wanting long-term metered parking, the Maverick Garage and West Parking Garage offer an all-day rate of $11 in addition to hourly rates.
The new signage was installed to better communicate with customers about the meter rates, maximum times, and payment methods so they can make the best decisions for their parking sessions.
Parking permit holders—faculty, staff, and students—must pay at metered parking spaces.
