Changes to Business Parking in Lots 54 and 55

7/18/2014

(Posted 7/18/2014)
PARKING ADVISORY
AREA AFFECTED: Changes to Lots 54 and 55

SCOPE OF PROJECT:

To better accommodate and manage the competing demands on parking near the J. K. Williams Building, changes were vetted and will be made this fall to the operation of Lots 54 and 55. University Business and university vehicle parking will be provided in designated spaces only.

  • Lots 54 and 55 will no longer be designated University Business (UB) lots, but 10 spaces in each lot will be 2-hour timed UB spaces.

    http://transport.tamu.edu/parking/maps/lots/055.pdf
  • This change eliminates unlimited, free parking for university vehicles in these lots. Custodians of university vehicles may park for free in UB spaces for up to the 2-hour limit, may purchase a permit for the vehicle to park on an ongoing basis in either of these lots, or may continue to park the vehicle long term in other, nearby UB authorized lots (47, 50, 51, etc.)
  • Traditional scratch off permits will no longer be valid in Lots 54 or 55 however on-demand, daily visitor parking for these lots may be purchased online by Departmental Parking Representatives (DPRs) using departmental funds. We refer to this product as the departmental Guest Permit.

 

DEPARTMENTAL GUEST PERMIT

Even though the rules state only 5 Scratch Off permits can be used in a lot at a time, we really never know how many will appear at any given time. It is of utmost importance to our department to protect our permit holders and ensure they are never displaced. This new Guest Permit provides the ability to limit and adjust the total number of permits available for purchase for each lot on any given date. It is a temporary, printable permit that is issued immediately after payment is made via the DPR page. The process allows our DPRs to self-serve with no delay or trip to our office needed and no chance of the permits being lost in the mail. DPR’s will have the ability to pre-purchase the permit and send the guest a link so they can print the permit before they arrive on campus, if desired. DPRs could also send a link to the campus map to prevent any confusion before the guest arrives on campus.

This permit will prevent the historic problem of citations being issued after the guest parks and before they have entered the office to retrieve and hang the old scratch off-type permit in the vehicle since guests will be in possession of the permit when they arrive.

These changes will take affect beginning with the new permit year, beginning August 17, 2014.



Lot 62 Kyle Field Renovation Phase 2

2/10/2014

(Posted 12/10/2013)
PARKING ADVISORY
AREA AFFECTED: Lot 62

SCOPE OF PROJECT:
Due to the Kyle Field Renovation sections of Lot 62 will be closed in 2 phases.


•   Phase 2 will begin on February 10, 2014 and will close additional spaces in the southern portion of the lot as indicated on the attached map.
Please see the attached map for Lot 62 Phase 2 closure area:
   

All pedestrian paths will be maintained. Please use caution when navigating the construction area. This February closure consumes approximately half of Lot 62. We stopped selling permits in Lot 62 once we learned the project would require this closure 9 months ahead of schedule; however, if there is not enough attrition in the lot to satisfy all current customers, a permit recall may be required. It is never our intent to recall permits, but at times construction projects necessitate it. After December graduates turn in their permits over the semester break we will give you an update about the number of permits that may be recalled. If it is determined permits must be recalled, the last customers who purchased permits would be the ones affected.

We appreciate your understanding.

Sincerely,
Texas A&M University
