Parking Services Implements New & Updated Online Parking Portal
Parking Services will implement a new and updated online parking portal from its vendor later this month that will include an upgraded, mobile-friendly interface and a new look and feel while keeping the portal`s key functionality essentially the same - its main function will still be for buying new parking permits, renewing permits, adding a name to a waiting list for a lot, and paying citations. The new portal`s key mission will be to boost ease of use for students, employees, and visitors resulting in a much more user-friendly experience.
In addition to the new portal, Parking Services will also this winter replace its parking-lot pay stations with new high-efficiency, solar-powered pay stations. The new pay stations have advanced features, are theft resistant, have larger LCD screens, and are easier to maintain and use.
Parking Permit to be Required at Lincoln Creek Transportation Center
Starting This Fall
Starting September 21, 2015 a permit will be required to park in Western’s Lincoln Creek Transportation Center (LCTC). The permit will be free for the 2015-16 school year as the lot transitions to a permit system. Starting with the 2016-17 school year the LCTC lot may have a minimal fee.
Permits are available online. Customers can print their own permit from home. Self-help computer kiosks will be available in the lobby of Campus Services building (parking office).
Making the transition to a permit system for the LCTC will allow for utilization tracking of the lot and provide a means to communicate with lot users. In addition, charging fees for the lot will assist in offsetting its maintenance costs and allow for future upgrades.
For more information on the LCTC permits, contact Parking Services at 360.650.2945.
