Parking and Transit Services exists to provide safe and well-maintained parking facilities in addition to efficient and dependable transit services for the campus community. This is accomplished through the fostering of an effective and reliable delivery of service for campus parking and transit needs in support of Kent State University's mission.
Parking and Transit Services has undertaken a number of initiatives in recent years that support the University Mission, the University Strategic Plan and its core values. Specifically, these initiatives address fiscal responsibility and accountability, focusing on those we serve and securing our financial future through efficient management.
With parking control and enforcement as its main objectives, the department strives to maintain accessible parking for the entire university community with as much flexibility as possible. In addition, it strives to provide close proximity to parking and transit facilities and services so that students and faculty can engage in classroom, laboratory and library activities with ease and timeliness.
