The University Transportation Task Force would like to hear from you:
Tell us what you think: When a proposal like this is developed, we like to think that we have thought of everything. But if there is a consideration we have missed, please let us know about it here.
Share your experience: For a historical perspective, we would also like to hear from those who experienced the “before and after” results of the zone parking change in 1991. If you are willing, please share your experience here.
Here’s an example from Oregon State University after their implementation of zone parking two years ago:
“Just wanted to let you know that I am a huge fan of the new program. I’ve also talked to many colleagues in the college, all who find the new system a much better alternative to what has been used in the past. It is nice to be able to reliably find a spot in the lots where I expect. The traffic related to “parking hunting” has dramatically reduced loggerheads on the north west quadrant of campus. It is much easier, quicker to find a spot, and much safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. In the past, I might have searched 10-15 minutes for a place, trying one lot after the next. Congestion and commute time has been dramatically reduced by being able to swiftly locate a spot in my zone. Thank you.” – Donald O.
