This question is regarding the construction in the Pratt Street Garage. My primary clinical work is at University Specialty Hospital (USH). If I have a meeting on campus, I often walk but sometimes need to drive. During construction, I understand that I will first have to go to my usual garage, Penn Street, and then be directed to another garage. This is very inefficient. Could we be allowed to go to one of the peripheral garages to save time? Thanks for taking my question.

Our program also currently has approximately $20 million in debt service outstanding. Given these two facts, a salary-based parking rate structure would be hard to implement and be fair to all....

I often have to drive to work and pay the reduced rate in the Saratoga Garage. Is there a way to put a flat dollar amount on my account so that I can swipe my badge when I leave? I currently have to pay directly with cash or credit card.

We are currently working with our vendor to provide this option. We are also hoping to provide the ability to link your access card to a credit card for daily payment or to debit and replenish a predetermined amount. We are hoping to have at least the debit feature available...
