At the last Staff Senate meeting, Josh Cantor, director of Parking and Transportation, updated the group on new parking developments at the Fairfax Campus.

His announcements included:

  • Annual surface parking permit rates will increase from $160 to $180 per year.
  • Annual deck parking permit rates will increase from $325 to $345 per year.
  • An additional 900 parking spaces will be added on the west campus (across Rt. 123), in a new lot off Braddock Road. A shuttle will run between the main and west campuses. Parking permits for this and other parking on the west campus will cost $50 annually.
  • As of this fall, staff members using payroll deduction for parking permits will not have to apply each year for permits; the process will be automatic. Yearly permits may still be purchased with a lump sum payment. More information about this will be distributed in the next few weeks.
  • After the results of the transportation survey are tabulated, some new commuter programs, such as vanpooling and carpooling, may be implemented.
  • Lot B is scheduled to close permanently at some point in the fall.
