Parking Overall

TRANSFORM | Charge more for parking (or restrict permit applicants) and ensure that PARTA is streamlined to promote more use of the bus system and fewer local commuters (those who live less than a mile away and are not mobility-restricted due to health issues). Study how many "C" parking permit holders actually only live a few blocks for campus. I walk in from four blocks away and I see too many cars parked at student houses with these permits on my walk to work. I counted in the parking lot of the new S Depeyster apartments and 1/3 of the cars had "C" permits in them. If you could cut down on local commuters (students, but also faculty/staff) by encouraging walking and transit use, you'd both reduce traffic and promote healthy communities.
